Kampi Anchorage at Fourni Islets

Kampí is a small cove just south of the Fourni harbor. It is well protected from the 'meltemi'. We have weathered here a force 9 gale blowing for several days. The bottom provides much better holding than Fourni harbor but it is fairly deep and care must be taken during anchoring. Allow at least 45 m of chain. A concrete, L-shaped jetty extending out from the beach offers room for 3/4 yachts bow or stern-to. On the western shore, the proprietor of the local taverna To Kampí, has made concrete columns on the rocks for securing a shore line. It is best to use two lines. He also (2001) has placed three laid moorings but in May 2010 only one was there. These are much easier and more secure than anchoring. Please do keep in mind, however, that if you do use them you are morally obligated to eat at least one meal at his restaurant. Care must be taken approaching the rocks with an inflatable. They are very sharp and full of sea urchins. The wind here, as in most of Fourni, has violent gusts and seems to come from every direction. Ashore, there is a small restaurant (the owner of the moorings and columns) with wholesome home cooking and very fresh fish. There is an uphill path that connects with the road leading to the town, about 30 minutes on foot.
