In the new part of the port, you can moor both forwards, in reverse and alongside the quay. The town quay is not recommended, only for replenishing your water supply. This quay does not offer sufficient shelter. Furthermore, the passing ferries and a strong NW wind cause an unpleasant swell . There are also many sheltered anchorage areas near the islands:
Monastery bay: here you can moor at the wooden jetty of the local ‘Torre a Mare’ swimming resort or anchor in the bay.
Sand bar bay: this is the shallow passage between the islands and the mainland. You can freely anchor here or attach a long line to the rocks nearby. However, make sure to keep the passage free for passing ships.
End bay (Neilson bay): this small bay to the east of the smallest island (Nisos Mavros Notos) offers very good shelter in all weather conditions. Four anchors with a long line attached to the rocks. The path that leads to the village can be reached from the small beach. It is possible to travel to Mourtos – on foot or with the dinghy – from all of these bays.
