Anchorage Almost in the middle of the bay, 1.2 miles S of cape Paliokoúla, an elliptical area is formed, 0.5 miles wide and 1.2 miles long, with depths of 6–8 m. It is a good anchorage, on a good holding ground of mud. The main entry to the vicinity is the channel formed between the reefs extending up to about 600 m S of low rocks Achilléos (38°53’.0 N – 20°45’.3 E) and the above- and below-water rocks lying S, which extend NE of islet Ágios Nikólaos for about 0.6 miles. The channel has a width of less than 0.2 miles and depths of 3.5–5.5 m along its axis. Only shallow-draught vessels can approach the vicinity.
