The rich history and naval tradition of the island are reflected almost in every corner and is definitely worth taking a walk through the whole town. Around the historical harbor of Dapia there are many restaurants either with Greek traditional cuisine or with more European dishes, graphic cafés for the first coffee of the day, colorful bars ideal for a romantic sunset drink or for joyful, noisy nights with friends.
Taking a short walk from Dapia, in a beautiful picturesque location, there is the island’s Cathedral Church of Agios Nikolaos of a great historical importance as it is the place where the island’s Independence flag was raised on 3rd April 1821. The Spetses Museum is a must-see spot where you will find objects that outline the history of Spetses from the ancient past to the present. The objects on display represent more than 4,000 years of the island’s history. Another important sightseeing is The House of Bouboulina which now operates as a museum with a collection of personal belongings, old weapons, rare books and household furnishing of one of the few female heroes of the Greek Revolution. The highlight of the museum is the incredible wood-carved Florentine ceiling in the main salon.
The impressive beaches are another important reason to visit Spetses Island. Agios Mamas beach is the main beach of the town, Agioi Anargyroi, with the clean, deep waters, the secluded beach of Agia Paraskevi with the soft sand and the crystal waters, Agia Marina, an organized beach with watersport facilities, Vrellos a family-friendly, long and sandy beach, Xilokeriza the beautiful sandy beach surrounded by much greenery and Zogeria the beach with the pine trees and the blue-green waters, maybe the most beautiful beach on the island. These beaches, though, are quite far from the town of Spetses and can be reached either by a hired car, by bus, or by boat.
