Sailing Holidays in Old Harbor or Baltiza
The Old Harbor or Báltiza is the only yacht harbor in the island. It is almost always crowded and has been used for a long time. As a result fouled anchors are quite common.
The most protected area is the inner harbor but finding an empty space there is rare except in early or late season, when sometimes a space can be found bows or stern-to next to the fuel quay.
Alternatively, one may stay for short periods (e.g. a quick trip ashore) on the fuel quay itself, with the permission of the harbor staff. Water and electricity are available on the quay - if you can moor there.
Both the West and East shores of the outer harbor are full of rocks, so the only other option is to anchor in 4-5 m and take a long line ashore, where there are plenty of places to tie the line. The holding is not always good.
Warning: Avoid the Old Harbor during weekends; boats from Athens will surround you and you may not be able to leave until Monday.
