Spetses Island

Spetses Island is located in the Argo-Saronic Gulf a couple of hours away from Athens by ferry. Spetses Island is popular for short getaways among foreign visitors and locals alike. It is known for its elegant atmosphere, as it is full of impressive mansions, as well as the car ban that keeps its atmosphere calm. An unusual aspect of Spetses is that no private automobiles are allowed within the town limits. The most common modes of transport are walking, horse-drawn carriages, bicycles, mopeds, and motorcycles. Only taxis and delivery vehicles are allowed in the downtown area. On the island you will find a yacht marina, boutique hotels and sophisticated restaurants, as well as secluded beaches with turquoise waters. Ferries and high-speed hydrofoils arrive regularly from the Athenian port of Piraeus.
