SPORTS: All the athletic sports and games practiced in other countries are to be found in Greece. Hunting: Visitors may hunt almost everywhere in Greece from Sept. 1 to May 15. Aquatic birds are numerous at Marathon and Souli, near Athens. Passage birds are to be found at Lake Carla, near Volos, Halkis and Limni in Central Greece. The hunting season on aquatic birds and on spring turtledoves begins March 15 and ends May 15. Partridges and rabbits may be hunted from the end of August to the middle of January. For information and hunting permits, apply to the Hellenic Hunting Association, 30, Kolokotroni Street, Athens. Fishing: Fish are plentiful in Greek waters. Amateur fishermen will find a warm welcome at the Association of Amateur Fishermen. For information apply to Mr. Petrovikis, Commercial Bank, 15a, Aristotelous Street, Athens.
Sailing and canoeing: Enthusiasts should get in touch with the Hellenic Royal Yachting Club at the Gulf of Munichia. Yacht owners will want to take advantage of the facilities offered to members of the club, where they may be admitted through a member. Regattas are organized during the summer in many ports and islands. Swimming: is particularly pleasant in the limpid, blue sea during the spring and fall seasons. There are good beaches all along the coast near Athens. Bathing facilities, however, are rather primitive, except for the new beach development of ‚“Astir‚ at Glyfada, 30-minute drive from Athens. The waters of the Cyclades Islands, also those of Corfu and Rhodes, are ideal for spear fishing.
Climbing and hiking: There are several mountains in Greece for hiking and camping. Mount Parnes, near Athens, is particularly popular for week-end and holiday excursions. Excellent climbing is to be enjoyed on Mount Taygetos in the Peloponnes, Kithairon, Parnassus in central Greece and Mount Olympus in northern Greece. Contact the Hellenic Alpine Club (tel. 44049).
