    The bay is well protected from the sea but beware of the catabatic winds that blow with violence from the West. With winds force 3 or 4 Beaufort in the open sea, constant and continuous catabatic gusts on 25 - 30 - 35 knots. It is advisable to anchor on the west side along the bay so as not to have the rocks immediately aft of your boat. If you arrive at night no problem, the depth is maximum 7 meters even in the middle of the lagoon. To enter the bay, navigate slightly to the east (towards the island of Spinalonga) with respect to the center of the canal and you will have a minimum of 4.5 goals of depth.

    La baia è ben protetta dal mare ma attenzione ai venti catabatici che soffiano con violenza da Ovest. Con venti forza 3 o 4 Beaufort in mare aperto, raffiche catabatiche costanti e continue sui 25 - 30 - 35 nodi. Si consiglia di ancorare sul lato Ovest lungo tutta la baia in modo da non avere gli scogli subito a poppa della vostra barca. Se arrivate di notte nessun problema, le profondità sono massimo 7 metri anche nel centro della laguna. Per entrare nella baia, navigate leggermente a est (verso l’isola di Spinalonga) rispetto al centro del canale e avrete un minimo di 4,5 metei di profondità.

    All around sheltered anchorage, water clean but a bit murky.

    Rundum geschützter Ankerplatz, Wasser sauber aber etwas trüb.

    Extremely protected anchorage. Very calm, like a lake! The bottom is sand and mud; great holding. There is a beach reachable by dinghy, with fire pits, grill, and seating. Nice option for a beach bonfire or bbq.
