If you do not have your own car, there is a bus service that connects all beaches with the villages. The buses, however, are few and far between. It would be advisable to rent a car or use a taxi to explore the island.
Marinas: If you have your own boat, there is a well-organized marina in Skala and a smaller and less developed marina (for just a few boats) in Grikos.
