Spetses Island is part of Greece's Attica Region. It is often considered one of Argo-Saronic Islands, the largest of which are Salamis, Aegina, Agistri, Poros, Hydra and Dokos. The island has land area approx 27 km2 (11 ml2) and population around 4,000.
Town Spetses is island's only large settlement. Also part of Spetses Municipality are the neighbouring (uninhabited) isles Falkonera, Velopoula and Spetsopoula. An unusual fact is the lack of private cars within town's limits - so for transportation are used bicycles, mopeds, motorbikes and horse-drawn carriages. Only delivery vehicles and taxis are allowed in downtown. High-speed hydrofoils and ferries arrive regularly from Piraeus-Athens (mainland greece).
Beaches closest to the town include Agios Mamas (central), Kaíki (1 km northwest) and Agia Marina (2 km south). All offer watersport activities and are served by public buses.
