This was our first visit to the sponge docks and we were not impressed or excited. Only one boat with a man washing down a handful of sponges. I guess we expected to see a bustling little “port” with activity, energy and people. (We were there on a Wednesday at noon). No one said hi- no laughter along the street. Shops were what we expected- souvenir filled and fun to look at! We ate at Hellas and did not have a great experience-please read my other post for details.

The Sponge docks are still worth a visit. The food and people are still great. Yes, the tourist aspect is ever present, but it is a great walking and food destination

Me and my boyfriend love walking the shops and having lunch or dinner. They have many tours that you can go on and you can learn all about the history of sponging. It’s a nice way to spend a day.

we feel in Greece with the freddo-cappuccino on the terrace, the restaurants are not bad but a real taverna with bouzouki is missing
