Salamina is the largest Greek island in the Saronic Gulf, about two kilometres (one nautical mile) off-coast from Piraeus and about 16 km west of the centrer of Athens. Salamis Island belongs to the Islands regional unit of the Attica region and it has a population of 31,776 habitants.
Salamina island is known for the Battle of Salamis, the decisive naval victory of the allied Greek fleet, led by Themistocles, over the Persian Empire in 480 BC. The Battle of Salamis is considered one of the most significant battles in human history. A Persian victory would’ve stopped the development of ancient Greece. In modern times, it is home to Salamis Naval Base, headquarters for the Hellenic Navy.
The island’s beautiful beaches, stunning sunsets and cosmopolitan atmosphere attracts mostly Athenian people looking for an easy and affordable overnight trip near Athens, or for other visitors who would relish an alternative three-day adventure driving around its weather-beaten roads. As a fishing island, this is a place where someone has the opportunity to taste the best traditional recipes with 100% fresh fish food. High interest museums, ancient theatres and monasteries are also available if someone wishes to explore the Greek culture,
