A very sheltered traditional Greek harbour with a sandy beach. The village sits on the edge of a low lying coastline, surrounded on all sides by fertile farmland on the Orei straits (Stenon Oreon). The harbour is well protected from the prevailing local winds, and the meltemi rarely enters the straits.
Warning: be aware of the Oreon reef a couple of miles west of the harbour. It is marked by a small light.
Moor: tie up on the inner mole adjacent to the waterfront; stern to or alongside where you can find room. The holding is good. The harbour it is usually quite busy.
Anchor: just outside the harbour, 3-6m on muddy sand, good holding.
Ashore: Tavernas and bars along the front are very pleasant. There are a couple of small mini markets. The one near the marble bull will deliver to your yacht. There is a bakery adjacent to the town quay. No ATM or bank. A butcher close to the harbour. Cards for water and power works in all Evia harbours
- the remains of the Venetian & Turkish castles.
