The small port (marina) Karrá (Pórto Karrá) is formed in the southern part of the sandy beach of the bay of Néos Marmarás. It is an artificial port, suitable for tourist crafts. The penetration of the marina to the southeast reaches about 600 meters. Its entrance is 30 meters wide and open to the west.
It is protected by natural boulders, placed on both sides. Lights are exhibited from their ends (40° 04’,8 N - 23° 47’,8 E) portside and (40° 04’,8 N - 23° 47’,8 E) starboard for the incoming vessels. The axis of the entrance channel heads to 095° and it is marked by two white piles placed on the east quay. The piles carry leading lights, with orange Δ for the front light (40° 05’,8 N - 23° 47’,8 E) and orange for the rear light (40° 05’,8 N - 23° 47’,8 E).
The north and east coasts of the small port are quayed for 450 meters, 1.5 meters high and the depths near them are about 5 meters. Along the shore there are small jetties. On the southeast side and close to the entrance there is a liquid fuel shop. Vessels, before entering the marina, should communicate with the dock master through the VHF 9 channel.

The small port is open to the southwest and covered from the west by a small peninsula of south direction, which is 300 meters long and ends up at cape Néos Marmarás. The opening of the entrance is 200 meters and its penetration to the north is 300 meters.
Following the coastal way from Porto Carras to Agia Kyriaki there is a lot of small deserted coves with beautiful sandy beaches and turquoise waters, for those who prefer isolation. Needless to say, there is no organized beach there, so you should bring along all the necessities.
Small islet opposite Neos Marmaras whose name Kelyfos Chelona (turtle shell) explains its shape--that of a turtle! Here the only residents are wild goats and gulls! However, it is worth swimming in the light blue waters of this unique beach. Accessible only by yacht.
