Agkistri, Greece: An Island Getaway
With 6,000 Greek islands floating on the Mediterranean Sea – out of which 117 are inhabited, it’s no wonder the country’s capital turns into a ghost town in the summer, when the majority of the population migrates near the water. Agkistri, only an hour away from Athens yet totally off the tourists’ radar, serves as a tranquil hideout surrounded by clear emerald waters and lush, evergreen pine trees. Whether you love being close to the sea or the forest, this is where you’ll get the best of both worlds; hiking paths give way to secluded beaches, celebrating nature’s pure beauty at every turn.
