Souvala – Crowded in high season!Driving north-eastern this morning exploring the coasts.

This entry is from our short trip to Souvala, a very popular destination especially to Greeks during the high season of summer.

Being the second biggest port (the first one is Aegina's) it is straightly connected to the port of Piraeus.

Located on the eastern part of the island, it is only 9 km away from the city of Aegina.

We take the coastal road full of picturesque coves and drive towards Plakakia.

I stop for a photo when we reach the Capralos Museum, but I am not going in because of lack of time.

The works exhibited here however are of marble, Aeginean porous stone and wood; and there are exhibits of paintings, terracotta and ceramics.

Opening Hours:

Daily 09:30 -14:00  and 17:00 – 20:00

Admission: 2 euros.

Telephone: +22970 22001 and 22970 22053

Just opposite the bronze statue of the Greek Mother welcomes the visitor.

The weather is more than perfect, though the sea looks a bit chilly. I didn't see more than a couple of people in the water.

Funnily enough we did not get to the sea either.
