Finding What You Want on a Greece Sailing Adventure

The island of Spetses offers romance and relaxation, making it a perfect place to visit on any Greece sailing holiday. With a long and proud naval tradition, the sea and sailing have always been at the cultural heart of Spetses, and the island is now something of a tribute to this rich history. It caters for tourists of all kinds, and it offers a truly picturesque snapshot of Greek life.

Aside from its historical significance, Spetses has plenty to offer when it comes to sun, sand and relaxation. Ayioi Anargyroi is the beach of choice for water-sports enthusiasts, whilst Vrellos – with its pine forest surround and perfect sandy shore – is known as “paradise” by the locals. Ayia Marina is perhaps the most famous of Spetses’ beaches, and with its numerous restaurants and bars, it isn’t hard to see why it is so popular with locals and tourists alike.
