Local travel and entertainment

Swimming and hiking are the main outdoors attractions of the island. Swimming facilities by the workshop grounds are more than adequate (both beach and swimming pool being available), but other beaches can be reached by bus or boat taxis at moderate prices.

A large variety of eating facilities are available near the workshop premises, in Spetses town and at the most popular remote beaches (Logoneri, Zogeria, Agia Marina, Agii Anargiri).

Bars and dancing clubs are also available, mostly in Spetses town.

Further travel and entertainment

A major attraction of the summer in Greece is the Hellenic Festival with performances mainly in Athens, at the Herodes Atticus open air theater, and in Epidaurus, another ancient theater not far from Spetses.
