In winter Spetses returns to calm and prepares for the new season. The approximately 4,000 permanent residents rested and regroup, so they are ready to welcome the thousands of visitors who will come in the summer.
The island of Spetses with its rich history and seafaring traditions plays host to the Spetses Mini Marathon for the 6th consecutive year. This year's events take place from 7th to 9th October. With the island's policy prohibiting the use of private cars, it is the ideal location for this great sporting event!
Located near the beach of Ayios Anargyros, Bekiri's Cave is a unique spot of natural beauty. It has been used many times during the island's history as a place of refuge, most notably during the 1821 War of Independence against the Ottoman Empire, and again during the Nazi occupation of WWII.
Experts say now is the time to go to Greece, thanks to the large number of travel deals that have sprung from the country's debt crisis.
