Aigina Central Port:

- Mooring:Ask the port police for berth.Make sure that your anchor has caught because the holding is poor in place There are permanent moorings with marking buoys in the marina.
Aigina Perdika Port
- Shelter:From NW-E and S winds.The waves from the strong siroccos(SE) and ESE break onto the island of Moni and the rebound comes into the harbor and nothing can withstandit.Leave in plenty of time and head for the bay of Marathona.The strong W wind also creates a real problem and needs attention.
- Mooring: Poor holding in places
