Spetses Guide

The Greek island of Spetses is one of the Saronic group of islands. Its ancient name was Pityonissos and Pityousa from the ancient Greek word for tree, "Pitys". The Venetians brought the name Spetses with them as they used to call the island "Isola di Spezzie" which means the island of aromas (spices). The largest town on the island is also called Spetses and is quite unusual in that private vehicles are not allowed within the town's boundary. As a result, people who live there or visit, have no choice but to walk or take a horse-drawn carriage. Motorcycles and bicycles are permitted.

The closest beaches to the town are Agios Mamas, in the centre of the town, and Kaiki beach which is around 1 km to the north west and Agia Marina which is 2 km to the south. For beaches further from the town, such as Zogeria, Agioi Anargiroi and Agia Paraskevi, there are public buses that can be taken.

In the Medieval times, the island flourished with trade and the locals constructed elegant mansions that survive to this day. Spetses is also a popular weekend destination due to its proximity to Athens.

Hydra Guide

Hydra is a Greek island that lies in the Saronic Gulf and is a popular destination for visiting Athenians for the weekend due to its proximity to the Greek capital. The island's main town, also called Hydra, is built on the slopes of a hill around the port and is an impressive site. Quite unique to Hydra is that all cars and other motor vehicles are prohibited throughout the island and therefore all journeys must be made on foot, by boat or by donkey. The island's beaches, which a very popular with visitors, are mainly small coves and have crystal clear waters and tend to be surrounded by green vegetation. Perhaps the best and prettiest beaches on the island are Agios Nikolaos, Bitsi, Vlichos and Kaminia.
