The Harbor of Agios Georgios at Pegeia has its own history. Agios Georgios beach, the Fishing Shelter is a small sandy beach with some organizational aspects. It is a fishermen’s harbor for traditional fishermen, as well as a living museum.
Exactly opposite, a unique little island, Geronisos, stirs the interest of explorers and archaeologists. Geronisos is the shelter for many birds, mainly seagulls, and it also presents archaeological remains.
Geronisos is the epicenter of excavations conducted by various archaeological expeditions which lasted for over 25 years. In 2017 was concluded the 5-week survey and study which took place under the direction of Dr. Joan Breton Connelly, professor of History of Art and Classical Studies in the University of New York.
The expedition was completed by an international group of archaeologists and students, including a team from the Leon Recanati Institute for Maritime Studies of the University of Haifa, which conducted preliminary underwater research around Geronisos and the Port of Maniki.
