Salamis Island is part of the Argosaronic Island group
A wide variety of dishes is offered by To Pirophani on the promenade road from Salamis towards Aghios Nikólaos.
Further east, in Aghios Nikolaos itself, is the Christos taverna for good fresh fish.
The taverna of the hotel Votsalakia in Selinia is also to be recommended;
and, on the waterfront below the "Cave of Euripides" at Peristeria, is a small and anonymous fish taverna with a friendly host and freshly prepared, simple dishes.
By boat: Car and passenger ferries make the 15-minute crossing between Paloúkia on Salamis and the port of Pérama (1), 8km to the northeast of Piraeus throughout the day and night: every 15 minutes from 5 am to midnight, and every hour thereafter.
There are also ferries every 30 minutes to and from Paloúkia and the main port of Piraeus (2), between 6 am and 5 pm: on Saturday and Sunday after noons the frequency drops to an hourly service.
There is a car-ferry connection from the western end of the island which crosses every 30 minutes, between Stenó Phaneroménis (3) and the harbour for Megara, also confusingly called Nea Péramos: this then connects easily with the main Athens to Corinth highway.
If you require your own car on Salamis, which is necessary for exploring the island properly, it is advisable to rent from Athens, since there is no obvious rental facility on Salamis.
Salamis has only three, strictly utilitarian hotels.
The nicest is the Hotel Votsalakia (T. 210 467 1344, fax 210 4671432) on the waterfront at Selínia: it is welcoming and has its own good, restaurant/ taverna.
Of the other two, both in Aiántion—the Hotel Gavrïel (T. 210 466 5748) and the Melina Resort Hotel (T. 210 464.0562)—neither is recommendable except in an emergency.
