Spetses Island Travel Guide: 118 reviews and 264 photos
The island of Spetses is situated to the entrance of the Argolic Gulf, not far away from Athens. It has an oval shape and a surface area of 22 square km, with a population of about 4.500 people (living basicly in the main town of Spetses).
The island has a cosmopolitan style. Its beaches, with sand or pebbles, are located at beautiful small bays...
The island has an important historical and religious past. Spetses is the homeland of L. Bouboulina, legendary woman of the greek history. Its most popular festival is the enactment of the battle on 8/9/1822 with the participation of the inhabitants.
Religious festivals are celebrated all year long in many churches and chapels.
You can see and learn a lot about it on my Spetses page. Surprises are waiting for you all over the nice town, which, as the whole island, can best be seen by riding a bicycle (transferring a car is forbidden there)...
They were next to a beach in the town of Spetses, probably being prepared for the Olympic Games in 2004 some miles more... more travel advice
The cat was waiting and posing outside the Historical Museum, it wasn't an exhibit... more travel advice
