GREEK island of SALAMINA: Rarely visited

SUBSCRIBE ► - Greek island of Salamina or Salamis - scenic views. Let's travel to Greece and let's visit the Greek island of Salamis or Salamina (Greek: Σαλαμίνα, Salamína) which is the largest Greek island in the Saronic Gulf, about 2 km off-coast from the port of Piraeus and about 16 km (10 mi) west of central Athens. The chief city, Salamina, lies in the west, facing the crescent on Salamis Bay, which opens into the Saronic Gulf.
History buffs shouldn’t miss Salamina, and it’s convenient for inquisitive travellers, too; you can explore the entire length and breadth of the island, from the peninsula of Kynosoura in the northeast (where the Naval Battle of Salamina took place in 480BC) to the cave where Euripides (the Athenian tragedy writer) sought shelter in the south.
Salamina is also a great fit for families looking for an easy and affordable overnight trip near Athens, or for friends who would relish an alternative three-day adventure driving around its weather-beaten roads.
