The location of Aegina

The island of Aegina is in the middle of Saronic gulf. On the south west there is a small plain where in the past there were vineyards and fig trees. Now most have been replaced by pistachio-trees. Its port is about 16.5 nautical miles from Pireus (the main Greek port). Aegina's area is 83 km2 and its population is 14.000 residents. The shape of the island is triangular and its perimeter is 36km. The greatest part of the island is covered by small mountains. Many natural harbors exists its rocky coasts. These small harbors are: in Aegina city, Souvala, Agia Marina and Perdika. On the west there is a bigger gulf, Marathon, where the Greek ships were assembled after the famous naval battle of Salamis. The climate of the island is dry, and water is provided mostly from wells and springs, or carried by special water boats from the mainland. The highest mountain of Aegina is Oros with a height of 539 m.. It is in some way the "omfhalos" (belly button)of the Saronic gulf.
