A great swimming option if you are short on time or don’t want to commit to a beach by boat or hike. Spilia is located in the port, with platforms and ladders to access the sea. There are no showers or bathrooms, but there are cafes and restaurants nearby. Great if you like jumping/diving off rocks!

Što trebate ponijeti sa sobom
Footwear to bring
- flats (heels are challenging on the cobble stones and up and down steps, especially from our house) - runners/hiking boots (the island is hilly, there are lots of steps and the stones can be slippery -- especially in the rain) - wetshoes (for the very pebbly beaches)

Meal times
Lunch is normally around 13:00-15:00. Drinks/aperos are around 18:00-20:00 (to watch the sunset!) Most restaurants don't open for dinner until at least 19:00. Locals tend to eat dinner around 22:00. Check shop hours - off peak season, some places are closed on Sundays, or have limited hours, and most shops take a mid day siesta, but stay open late.
