The marina is un-managed and boats moor alongside where space is available. There are so many abandoned boats you will proably have to raft up. No water or electricity available. Can get water by canister from a tap by the coastguard boat.
A local guy may try to scam you out of a few euros to moor here.

Pilos is a lovely town, not overly touristy, the town square, shaded by large trees is a fine place to pass an afternoon. But the marina has numerous abandoned boats slowly sinking, rotting fishing boats on the quay, rubbish stuffed in every crevice, and overflowing smelly bins. It's scruffy and lets the town down.

Pilos is a pleasant town with a shaded central square full of tables and chairs where you can grab a bite to eat or something to drink. Interesting monument at the head of the square commemorating the three anti-Ottoman admirals who took part in the battle of Navarihno.
The port as described earlier is indeed scruffy. But its secure from most winds, if one can find a place. Be aware that on occasions, you may be approached by one of the locals asking you politely to move as he needs your spot. Apparently to either work on a boat or because he owns the spot.
