Sailing Holidays in Tinos Harbor

Tinos is the only sheltered harbor in the island. It is a large commercial port with frequent ferries charging in and out. Visiting yachts normally berth stern/bows-to, using their anchors, in the small basin to port on entering the inner harbor.

The holding is good in mud and depths at the quay here are around 3.0 meters. Shelter is excellent in the prevailing winds, which tend to blow a yacht off the quay, but gusts will be experienced in winds above force 6.

The basin is also subject to regular ferry wash and it is advisable to pull well off and use snubbers on your mooring lines if at all possible. Water is available on the quay (at a charge) and there are a total of six electrical connections distributed between two stanchions at either end of the quay.
