As much as we think we know about Attica, something new will always surprise us and prove to us that there is plenty of places to explore. Hidden small beaches that you haven’t discovered yet. One of them is an uninhabited but beautiful island of Attica, the Moni. If you’ve been to Aegina, you probably, of course, have met or visited. A green place with clean beaches and a landscape that takes your breath away It belongs, of course, to the islands of The Argosaronic that stand out for their special charm.
Moni, the island – dream of Attica
We had been to Aegina many times but not to the Monastery. To be honest, at some point, we didn’t even know its existence. Until a local urged us to go cross the island from Perdika to enjoy this beautiful place on our holidays. And so we found ourselves in the Moni. A beautiful and picturesque place , a dot on the map.
The island is, of course, uninhabited and as its name attests is dedicated to a monastery. It is worth spending all day there bathing in the sun and enjoying the sunset. We did it, and we didn’t regret it for a moment. You’re full of so many colors and images that your heart can’t forget that place.
I’m sure you’ll be back. Although it is an organized beach is very quiet. Walking a few meters you can reach the back side of the road that has more rocks. If you like reading, you can sit under a tree and enjoy it.
