The best place for a yacht is alongside the southern side of the ferry jetty at the SE side of the harbor, where there is space for two yachts to raft up, or (if a ferry is not parked there) alongside the northern side of the same jetty.

Near the Potami beach you will find the great waterfalls of Karlovasi. Walking through a nice path two small beautiful waterfalls are revealed.
