The small port (marina) Karrá (Pórto Karrá) is formed in the southern part of the sandy beach of the bay of Néos Marmarás. It is an artificial port, suitable for tourist crafts. The penetration of the marina to the southeast reaches about 600 meters. Its entrance is 30 meters wide and open to the west.
