To be fair to the place we were there very early in the season, and the weather wasn't all that good, but it really didn't impress me at all. We were only there for a couple fo days and, frankly, were glad to be away from it.

I speak a little of the language, most of my close frineds are Greeks or Greek Cypriots, and I thoroughly enjoy my frequent journeys there. i would, however, on the evidence of my (admittedly brief) stay on Spetses, suggest that there are far better islands to visit.
