Marathokampos Harbor

Exploring Samos Sailing Holidays area Add Marathokampos Harbor to favorites Add Marathokampos Harbor to your Points of Interest

Marathokambos is a small harbor on the SW side of Samos, lying 15 miles west of Pythagorion and around 14 miles NE of the Fournoi Islands. In settled weather it is a delightful anchorage with water clear enough to swim off your boat with several taverns ashore.

However, it is not a good place to be with a strong meltemi (the Etesians) as the row of wind turbines on the ridge above suggests, since it is subject to very violent gusts and is not recommended in such conditions. Yachts usually anchor in the outer harbor, where the depths are 3.5 – 4.0 meters and the holding good on sand. There is room for around 4/5 yachts to swing to their anchors here.

Caution: There are very strong gusts here which can sometimes make the harbor untenable.
