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.
Only 2.5 - 3.5 hours from Piraeus by Hellenic Seaways' Flying Dolphin or Flying Cat. Alternatively, approximately 2 hours drive by car from the airport. This drive or taxi down on the new motorway, takes you through the Peloponnese to the tiny port of Kosta. Leave your car at the secure car park for €4 per day and take the 15 minute car ferry trip or Kaiki boat trip to Spetses. Once at Kosta, if you decide that you can't wait another second to get to the island - take a fast water taxi and do Kosta to Spetses in 5 minutes. Cars in Spetses town are banned and those on the island are limited to residents only who can only use them out of town and with a permit.
