The port of Eleftherés, located at the northern head of Eleftherés bay, consists of: a) the western pier, which has the shape of a trapezium and is directed to the south, with its small base looking towards the sea. Its western side is 130 m long and its depth reaches up to 5 m close to its head.
As we get close to its root, however, it becomes less deep, until it finally gets to 1 meter. A slope of masonry protects its eastern side. Its southern side is 90 m long, 78 m of which consist a Ro-Ro ramp, reaching depths of at least 5.8 m.
b) The eastern quay, which is located approximately 500 m from the western pier. Its southwestern side is 212 m long with depths reaching up to 5.9 m. At its northwestborder there is a disused Ro-Ro ramp, with depths of up to 7.7 m. Its northwestern side is 174 m long, with depths getting up to 5.5 m at its outmost point (which is 103 m long) and less than 2 m at the rest of its body.
The side close to the base of the quay’s northwestern side, which is 70 m long, is used for the mooring of the local fishing boats. Cargo ships use the rest of that side. The bay’s bottom consists of mud and sand.
