Port Atheni

38º40.5’N – 20º48.5’E

On the northeast side of Meganissi lies the bay of Katomeri, Port Atheni. The entrance to the bay can be identified by a small lighthouse. Directly behind it is the entrance to Atheni bay. A picturesque bay with many small coves, where you can easily anchor in calm weather. However, make sure you pull a line to the shore. Do not attach the line to the rock, but rather to a large tree. You can take a beautiful walk of about 30 minutes to the village of Katomeri. The road is somewhat steep, but it´s worth it. The older female residents of the village often go dressed in traditional clothes. Weaving and embroidery are also quite common here.
