ABOUT SPETSES

Information to help you get to know what Spetses Island Greece is like, it's proud history, the character of the island and how this small community works.

 

Spetses Island Greece is the most remote of the Greek Argo Saronic islands. Spetses is an attractive pine-clad island that is not huge, but big enough to offer a range of activities to keep everyone happy. Secluded, hidden coves with sparkling clear seas or beaches close to waterfront hotels and pensions; lots of tavernas to choose from with friendly service and traditional hospitality. Once visited - you'll want to return - again, again and again.
