|The island of Moni in Greece|
The island of Moni is situated opposite the village of Perika (in the southwest of Aegina) between the islands of Aegina and Agistri. It is an uninhabited island, but one with a nice sandy beach and two small tavernas where you can eat or drink something. The beach is organized and there are umbrellas and sunbeds for hire. There are regular boat trips during the tourist season from Perdika to this island. The trip from the village takes about ten minutes.
Moni is a green island with lots of pine trees and there are goats, rabbits, peacocks and a number of deer that are tame and that like to get fed by the tourists. Moni is a popular spot for divers because the water here is very clear. A path leads to the highest point of the island. During the Second World War Moni was occupied by the Germans and they built a bunker here with the aim to protect the port of Piraeus. This old bunker still stands on the island.
