Greece - Spetses

Lying in the Saronic Gulf just 95 kilometres from Athens, Spetses is a popular weekend destination for those seeking escape from the city. In Medieval times, the island was a bustling trade centre and wealthy merchants built grand mansions, many of which survive today.

The island has many beautiful beaches and coves set into pine forests.

Spetses – Top yacht charter destination

A two-and-a-half-hour sail from Athens, Spetses offers elegant architecture, luxurious amenities and secluded beaches and coves. Chugging into the historic port aboard your luxury yacht, you’ll be greeted by the century-old Poseidonion Grand Hotel, a popular haunt of movie icons such as Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe. In the marina, you’ll rub shoulders with the global super-yacht group – and might even spot a living legend yourself. The town offers winding cobblestone streets, numerous historic statues, traditional tavernas and stylish cafes. Drop anchor off the coast and dive into the electric-blue sea for some snorkelling and swimming.

Spetses – Things to Do

Scented with pine forests, aromatic herbs and oleander, Spetses transports you back to a gentle time when taking an evening stroll was the order of the day. The town’s promenade is perfect for leisurely walks, and because motorised transport is restricted, a horse-drawn carriage could be your transport for the day. Take a torch and head to Agios Anargyri beach in the west and swim in the famous Bekiri cave, where stalactites and stalagmites hang like candelabra wax. Ayia Paraskevi Beach, with its crystalline waters and hilly backdrop, is a beautiful place to drop anchor. Fancy something different? Book a horseback ride to Panagia Elonas with Greg’s Spetses Horses and admire the views from the beautiful church on top of the mountain.

Spetses – Gourmet Experience

With stunning sea views and elegant décor, On the Verandah, in the Poseidonion Hotel, is arguably one of the classiest dining experiences on the island. Try the smoked swordfish with orange and tuna ravioli. For more relaxed dining, try Clock, which specialises in pizzas, pasta and burgers, while Mourayo, on the water in the old harbour, serves excellent fresh fish and seafood. Akrogialia is perfect for a romantic dinner, with tables set on the beach at Kounoupitsa and a menu of top-notch seafood, such as grilled squid and shrimp pasta.

Spetses – Nightlife

Spetses has a vibrant nightlife scene, with many bars playing Greek music for their upmarket local clientele. Mayo Bar has a fabulous veranda overlooking the sea and serves excellent cocktails. Palms on the Verandah, at the famous Poseidonion Grand Hotel, has exquisite sea views and serves unique cocktails made from the finest ingredients. La Luz, on the top floor of an old stone building overlooking the old harbour, is a lively spot for a cocktail sundowner.
