Good start to go to Olympia. Train every day at 8.40 am., except Sunday.  More trains if there is a cruise boat. 

June 2018 update, trains not running due to landslide  Or take the bus. Small supermarket, bakery to the right of the car park as you are looking from the sea.

Moor: We checked out the harbour and there were only 4 other boats stern to with their anchors down as there is no laid moorings. Word of caution, while we were anchored a strong easterly came in, the crews on the boats that were stern to in the harbour could not get off/on to the boat because of the swell.

Ashore: a small supermarket, many tourist shops, and restaurants on the waterfront. To get a Greek SIM card you will have to go to the next town of Pyrgos, where you will find anything you need. The boatyard seems to be functional but we never saw anyone working and the marina office was always closed in the few days we went by. This is also a cruise ship terminal. 

Don't miss: the ancient city of Olympia is a must-see site. You can visit Olympia buy bus, taxi or a short trip on a train that only costs 5.00 Euro/person. 

Car hire from Avis €40 for the day, plenty of time for a trip to Olympia and stock-up at Lidl (closed Sunday)
