Spetses is a Greek island belonging to the Saronic Islands, that rest just off the southeast coast of the Greek mainland. The port is oftentimes used as the gateway to neighbouring Greek islands, as well as a crossing to Piraeus on the east coast of Greece.
Spetses was almost cursed by its beauty; wonderful aesthetics formed by a myriad of colour from the houses and the striking impression left from the glorious landscape make it just too alluring to remain off the beaten track of tourism. Over the years it has transformed into a mecca of stylish shops and elegant boutiques for day-trippers from Athens, basking in the lavish surroundings and overwhelming the island in a sea of wealth and luxury. However, the swanky and extravagant image shouldn’t put off anyone from visiting; each summer Spetses open its arms, as well as its endless tavernas and bars, to holidaymakers from all across Europe. Ayia Paraskevi Beach is perhaps the highlight of the island, attracting many with the azure blue water next to verdant mountainside. Head a bit further along the shore and discover the Bekiri Cave – one of many that adorn the coast.
A day of sightseeing, sunbathing and shopping can prove an exhausting combination, especially considering the plethora of vintage stores and picturesque beaches. To refresh yourself after an action packed day under the Mediterranean Sun, Spetses’ nightlife is the perfect cocktail of energy amid a laid back atmosphere. Cocktail bars offer the most invigorating experience when night falls on the magical island, and for a more tranquil experience, just sit with friends and family in one of the restaurants around the quaint harbourside.
Private cars are banned on the island, so many choose to travel by rental motorcycles. Walking is also another viable option, and public transport is reliable, though can be fairly expensive.
