No cars are allowed on Spetsai – if you drive from Athens you park at Kosta just across the strait and take the ferry – or taxi-boat – across to the island in a few minutes. With your car parked there, you can easily take off to the archaeological sites of Epidaurus, Mycenae or Nauplion on a day excursion and return to the peace of Spetsai in the evening.

Spetsai town has a lot to offer. The main activity is sitting on the Dapia over a coffee watching the ferries, yachts and local excursion caiques to-ing and fro-ing. When you tire of that you can think of taking the bus round to the south side of the island for a lazy day at the glorious crescent of sandy beach at Ag. Anargiri, complete with a full supporting cast of tavernas. If you feel really energetic, you may walk back across the centre of the island on a not over-challenging path from which you get glorious views of the town and across to Porto Cheli and Kosta on the Argolid peninsula just a few hundred metres away; it’s especially fine with the evening sun behind you. The other main beaches are within walking distance of the town – one eastwards at Ag. Marina and the other westwards at Zogeria, facing directly across to Porto Cheli.

Spetsai is blessed with lots of restaurants and round the Old Harbour you will also find the night-life – being within easy range of Athens, the locals expect some evening activity.

A stay in Spetsai may easily be combined with stays on the other islands of the Saronic Gulf or with Nauplion or Tolon on the Argolid mainland or, of course, in Athens.
