Destination guide

Local life is especially special in Spetses

The island of Spetses sits at the entrance of the Argolic Gulf, off the coast of the Peloponnese peninsula. The idyllic island is full of dreamy Grecian scenes, including domed churches, traditional tavernas, and fishermen sunning their catch of the day. Adding to the charm is the lack of cars. Instead, locals get around on motorbikes, or by horse and buggy, adding to the feeling that you've officially traveled in time. Opt for a Spetses vacation rental to complete the feeling of living like a local.

Things to do

The future is female, but so is Spetses's past

There are a few museums and galleries worth visiting in Spetses, but Bouboulina's Museum is arguably the most notable. It's the former home of local heroine Laskarina Bouboulina, the first female naval commander in the world, and heroine of the Greek War of Independence in 1821. Here, visitors will find exhibits on the local history, a look at Bouboulina's life, and a prominent Greek art collection. Horseback riding tours and bike rentals are available for families looking to explore the island from a new perspective, and catamarans can take you to any of the pebbled beaches along Spetses's coast.

Activities

It's all Greek to me... really, really Greek

Spetses is full of tiny port towns begging to be explored, with markets offering local wares and seafront tavernas perfect for leisurely lunches. Rent a catamaran and circle the island from the sea, or hop on a motorbike and get lost exploring. There are a handful of local history and art museums around Spetses, and plenty of natural beauty to be found, from caves to beaches. Some areas are upscale, while other parts of the island remain rustic and untouched. Either scene is perfect for nabbing a dream Spetses vacation rental.

Weather

You'll leave dreaming of a Spetses summer home of your own

Spetses is an ideal destination for about half the year, from April through October, when the weather is hot and the beaches are inviting. Peak season is from June through September, thanks to Athenians fleeing to their Spetses summer homes. You'll still find Spetses to be a bit quieter than Greece's other more famous islands, but your best bet is to come in the shoulder season, as spring and fall are both relatively quiet. Winter is best avoided, when most of the island closes down.

Natural features

Beaches and spices are bestest in Spetses

The word "spezia" is Greek for "spice," and the island's name derives from its prominant location along a former spice route. Today, while spice trading isn't really a main source of the island's appeal, the local dining scene is, with fresh fish caught daily off the island's coastline. The pebbled beaches of Spetses are simple but charming, and more adventurous travelers will love exploring the caves hidden around the shore, some only accessible by boat. A Spetses vacation rental on the coast is sure to be a hit for your whole group.
