There are several beaches here which can make a nice anchorage with protection from the meltemi. In settled weather the sandbar in Aspróniso or Aspronísi makes a delightful anchorage. Anchor in 3-4 m over sand. Excellent holding. Danger: The area is full of reefs and rocks, so approach very carefully.
The north part of the beach is characterized by crystal clear, shallow waters and fine sand. The other side (south of the port) the morphology of the sea-floor changed completely: there are thick quite clearly pebbles with unique colors.
