Perdika may not be as well-known as Aegina Town on the other side of the island; however, it is definitely a village not to be missed, with its quintessentially Greek charm making it a lovely stop-off for sailing holidays in Greece.

Much of Perdika’s appeal lies in its easy-going attitude and indulgence in simple pleasures. A thriving fishing village, its restaurants, bars and shops are clustered around a pretty bay. Built on gentle slopes above sea level, this little village offers delightful views across the water.

Perdika is a popular destination for day trips from Athens; equally, many people decide to spend several days here. Take breakfast in one of the many cafes before strolling along the various scenic pathways; for example, a leisurely wander to the headland opposite the harbour will take you to Perdika’s most notable attraction – a camera obscura. Built almost 15 years ago for a local exhibition, this low, round structure features a dozen openings in its walls that let in the light and create a panoramic view of the surroundings.

Once you have admired the view in 360-degree detail, visit one of the excellent fish tavernas the village is so famed for. Enjoy freshly-caught seafood for dinner whilst the sun goes down, before relaxing with friends in one of the lively bars.
