Sailing Holidays in Loutra Harbor
The harbor of Loutra is on the NE side of the island and is somewhat more yacht-friendly than the main ferry harbor. Although the prevailing NE winds blow down into the bay and cause a pronounced swell, the harbor, situated at the extreme W end of the bay, escapes much of the worst.
The harbor is defined by a long NE breakwater with an L-shaped extension and, on the SW side, by a short jetty filled with local small craft. It is quite small, and yachts are advised to prepare anchors, lines and fenders before entering in view of the limited space to manoeuvre.
