How to organize your travel to Spetses and "Nissia"

The island of Spetses is located at the entrance of the Saronic Gulf very near the mainland of Peloponnese.

The trip to Spetses

The island of Spetses is accessible either

  • by hydrofoil, from Piraeus port (a little more than two hours), or
  • by car from the Peloponnese, through the port of Costa.

    Distance from downtown Athens to Costa is ~180 km or 2.5-3 hrs; from Costa you can reach Spetses either by sea-taxi (5 min) or the small ferry (15 min).

Almost there!

Nissia is situated on the sea front at the coast of Kounoupitsa, 500 meters from Dapia, the center of Spetses.

Useful information:

If you wish to travel by car, you shall follow the National Road from Athens to Korinthos and take the exit to Epidavros. You then follow the signs to Kranidi – Porto Heli – Costa

No private cars are allowed on the island of Spetses, so you will leave your car on the Peloponnese coast of Costa.

From here you have two options:

  • Sea-taxis are available any time and you can ask the driver to drop you off at the Kounoupitsa jetty.
  • Alternatively you can take the ferry or boat from the coast of Costa.
