Sailing Tip

Harbor Agías Pelagías is the seaport of Potamós, the principal village of the island. Potamós is the most historic village, since it is the place where the most important events in the recent history of the island took place; even today it is regarded as the political center of the island.

Also, it is the principal harbor of the N part of the island, having frequent communications with Neápolis of Pelopónnisos, Gýtheio, Monemvasiá and Antikýthira. Immediately inland stand the houses of Agía Pelagía settlement.

The harbor is protected from ESE winds by a mole, which extends N for 190 m and continues NE for 40 m. The outer side of the mole is made of natural boulders, the inner side is quayed. A fishing shelter has been constructed near the root of the mole.
