Linaria is a small harbor and it offers good protection from the meltemi (the Etesians) (the Etesians) as well as from the S winds. Anchoring is very difficult because of the many laid moorings and bad holding. Most yachts moor alongside the West quay, avoiding the ferryboat area. There is only room for about three yachts and rafting is quite common. If there is no room you can anchor off-shore at the nearby Linaria Cove, although the bottom is weedy here and you need to take care to dig your anchor in well.
The harbor is very pleasant with a few restaurants and stores. There is a water outlet at the quay, with water available, sometimes, and a nearby fuel station.
