Parking is $5.00 unless you dine at a restaurant. The shops sell low quality stuff that's overpriced for the location. It is NOT Greece by no means.

Located behind Yiannis has a large variety of sponges from the local area. Sales lady was very informative and educational telling us about the different type of sponges, there use,, and how sponges are harvested. Good shop to visit.
