Sailing Holidays in Livadi Harbor
Livadi (meadow) is the only harbor in the island. There are two alternatives here. You can either dock stern-to on the south side of the quay or anchor off. Either way there is good shelter from the meltemi (the Etesians) (the Etesians) despite the strong gusts. With a strong south-east wind there is considerable swell into the bay.
The docking area is usually very crowded and noisy. Yachts also anchor moor stern-to on the north side of the quay, but it is not to be recommended in strong northerlies as the holding is not good.
Many cruisers prefer the alternative of anchoring off. Anchor at 6 meters towards the north-west of the bay but stay clear from the area where the ferries maneuver.
