Skala Thira Harbor

Exploring Santorini Sailing Holidays area Add Skala Thira Harbor to favorites Add Skala Thira Harbor to your Points of Interest

Skala Thíra or Skala Fira is the main harbor and where the cruise ships call. It is not really a harbor but a quay. There is a lot swell into the bay. The shelter is not great as it is too deep here to anchor so, yachts tie to one of two buys and go stern-to.

The problem here is that when a boat wants to depart, the boats on the outside have to untie. Under these conditions it is hard to leave your boat unattended and go sightseeing. It may be preferable to use another anchorage.

Going up to the town one can either take the cable car or the more mules. Local legend has it that the souls of "bad people," when they die, become these mules that ferry the tourist up the windy path.
