    A really nice and well protected anchorage. However, without any infrastructure (the beach bar was closed in mid-October). Very good anchor hold on sand / mud bottom. Unsustainable with more than 20 kn winds from the east or southeast - then the sea wind causes considerable waves! The passage between Amorgos and the small island is possible without any problems - as someone else wrote here: Just follow the navigation software!

    Ein wirklich schöner und gut geschützter Ankerplatz. Allerdings ohne jede Infrastruktur (die Strandbar war Mitte Oktober geschlossen). Sehr guter Ankerhalt auf Sand-/Schlammgrund. Unhaltbar bei mehr als 20 kn Wind aus Ost oder Südost - dann verursacht der Seewind erhebliche Welle! Die Passage zwischen Amorgos und der kleinen Insel ist problemlos möglich - wie ein anderer hier schon schrieb: Einfach der Navigationssoftware folgen!

    Good holding in sand once you find it, the water is very clear so easy to hunt around. We anchored in 4m close to the beach, protected from all sides. There is a small beach you can dinghy to but like most islands around here it is quite baron and rocky. The small gap between the island and the mainland is passable if you follow the plotter. We zig zagged through with 3.5m depth, the clear water makes it easy to see in the daylight.

    You have to get close enough to the beach to have a depth of 5 m. Protection against southerly winds is relative. Choppy water, but no swell. Muddy sand bottom with good hold. The beach is abandoned in these days of Covid, and the small wooden pontoon is broken, making it impossible to land on dry land on dry land. Apart from the chapel on the hill, there is nothing!

    Il faut s'approcher assez près de la plage pour avoir une profondeur de 5 m. La protection contre les vents du sud est relative. Du clapot , mais pas de houle. Fond de sable vaseux avec une bonne tenue. La plage est abandonnée en ces jours de Covid, et le petit ponton en bois est cassé, ce qui rend impossible de débarquer sur la terre ferme à pied sec. A part la chapelle sur la colline, il n'y a rien!
