Luxury and local tradition coexist on the beautiful island of Spetses, a favorite of captains and fashionistas, so close to Athens in the Saronic Gulf
Cosmopolitan Spetses, will make you want to return again and again.
It’s an ideal destination for a quick retreat all year round and never fails to make you feel special – whether you are enjoying a leisurely coffee in Dapia, with a view of Kosta and Porto Heli on the mainland opposite, taking a romantic stroll along the Old Harbour, or learning about the island’s fearless heroine Laskarina Bouboulina.
Horse-drawn carriages, bicycle and walking will be your only modes of transport on Spetses – all the better to enjoy the well-kept captains’ mansions below Agios Nikolaos Monastery, the boatyards, and Bouboulina’s Museum.
Spetses has long been a favorite escape for high society, as reflected in the smart cafes, art stores and stylish boutiques.
Since the use of cars is restricted, horse and carriage or walking remain the preferred means of getting around on Spetses.
So be sure to take a romantic evening ride in any of the horse-drawn carts that operate on the island, passing the picturesque Old Harbour, Agios Nikolaos and back to the main town, Dapia.
For swimming, Agia Marina, Kouzounos, Ksilokeriza, Vrelos, Scholes, Zogeria… beautifully clear waters and secluded beaches with pebbles and sand and shaded by pines are just walking distance away. And at the beach of Agios Arnargyros, you’ll discover the impressive Bekiris Cave.
