Gavrio provides the best shelter in the island. You can either anchor off-shore or go stern-to at the quay. The bottom is mud and provides good holding.
Caution: There are several reefs in the approach to Gavrio. In particular there is Vouvi with dangerous shoals at the south-east entrance, the rock Rosa, and shoal waters near the islets Akamatis and Plati.
On the north western side of Andros, about 35 km from Chora and 4 km from Gavrio, there is Fellos, an easy to access beach with crystal water and soft sand on the shore. This small bay is sometimes affected by summer winds, the so-called meltemia, but it is generally goods for swimming.
Located between the beaches of Agios Sostis and Vlychada, Kaminaki is a small cove that gets frequently affected by northern summer winds, the so-called meltemia that blow so often over Andros in the summer. This sandy cove receives very few visitors, mostly due to its remote location and the track road that leads there.
