Sailing Holidays in Kalotiri Bay
This is a rather pleasant anchorage, just 3 nM West of Aegiali, protected from the meltemi by Nikouria Island. There are strong gusts. Anchor under the church at 5-10 m on sandy bottom. Good holding but not everywhere (if having trouble try an non CQR anchor). The water here is very clean. Nikouria Island was once a leper colony but now there is hardly any evidence left from those days except for the foundations of some buildings. The narrow channel between the Nikouria and Amorgos despite its name of Kakoperato (bad passage), is at least 5 m deep at its center.
