If you have been “hooked” with fishing (excuse the pun) then you will be pleased to discover that the area around Aigeira offers opportunities for various types of fishing.

In addition to fishes there are also cephalopods:

Due to overfishing and environmental factors the fish stock in the gulf has reduced over the past decades. If you are fishing in the area please respect the minimum catch size for each specie.

Paralia Akratas is mainly pebbles and it is deeper. The seabed is without obstructions for the most part except along the central square where there are points of sharp depth drops caused from rockslide.

The beach in Aigeira is a more variable mix of sand, smaller pebbles, and depending on the weather (mainly wind) exposed rounded rocks.

For best results in Aigeira try your luck away for the center, nearer River Krios or even better at the rocks close to the fishing port of Mavra Litharia where things get much more interesting.
