Starting from the port of Porto Heli, enjoy a day trip by boat to the islands of Hydra and Spetses.
After just a few minutes of cruising, find yourself in Spetses, the ‘“Island of Aromas” that combines tradition and nobility with a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Step onto this car-free island, greeted by the show-stoppingly beautiful port of Dapia and the imposing captain’s houses that line the hillside, a testament to Spetses’ long history. Take a tour of the island’s cobbled alleyways, explore its markets, and enjoy a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride. There’s plenty of options for diving into the pristine waters of the Saronic Gulf, with Zogeria, Vrellos and Agia Marina beaches being clear stand outs. As for cuisine, the island covers every taste from charming seaside taverns to refined gastronomy. As the day closes, head to the Old Port where you’ll find the beating heart of nightlife on Spetses. The ‘island of aromas’ is also host to major sporting events, such as the Spetses Classic Yacht Regatta, the Spetses Mini-Marathon and the Tweed Run. All these and more offer a Greek island experience that is like no other.
Known by some as the “island of artists,” Hydra is one of the most beautiful islands of the Saronic Gulf, enchanting every visitor with its colorful collage of sights and scents. Hydra’s impressive landscape has been an inspiration for many great artistic personalities, such as Pablo Picasso, George Serefis, Leonard Cohen, Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghikas and Henry Miller. Far away from the sounds of the city, the calm and relaxation found in Hydra is undeniable. Explore the car-free island by foot, by horse, donkey or sea taxi. Journey down its beautiful alleyways and impressive mansions, enjoying the unique views from the island’s windmills, and invigorating your evenings at picturesque taverns, wonderful restaurants and bars that line the island’s beaches and cliff faces. For lovers of the sea, head to the beaches of Spilia, Hydroneta and Bisti.
