Town quay convenient to Pilos town square and amenities. The quay is very tall and the water about 10m deep. We ended up using our dinghy to ferry ourselves to a staircase in the wall, since our passerelle is not long enough! Others put their passerelles into the tires affixed to the wall, which would make them worth aiming for. There is a man from the town who comes around and offers water, and he arranged for diesel to be delivered by mini tanker. A lot of people do come and walk around on the pier at night, as noted in the pilot, but it was a quiet night overall. If you anchor off, there is lots of space in the inner harbour to tie up the dinghy to.

I'm livid in Pylos, Peleponese, Greece! Last July in Poros Port, Kefalonia I asked for my yacht's travel document(Dekpra) to have it's first annual renewal stamp. The port policeman was clearly reluctant to do the paperwork but was persuaded to because I feared I might not be near to another office before it was due in early August. A few weeks ago it was noticed during my cruising tax processing in Pylos that the wrong section had been stamped leaving the 'Annual attestation' boxes blank. A supervisor told the officers to ignore the error. However, another Pylos port policeman descended on my boat yesterday and asked to see my documents and announced that he would keep my boat registration and Dekpra as he had discovered that my document was unstamped.. My protestations were to no avail, he told me it was my responsibility to ensure the stamp was in the correct section! To cut a long story short, under threats of a €500 fine, the possibility to have my documents held while I motored 90nm north to Poros in the hope they would agree to correct the error, or pay for a new Dekpra for €50 plus bank charges under no small protest I went for what was the cheapest option and bought a new Dekpra. When I asked a supervisor for an address to send a complaint her sympathetic support was beaten down by the harbour master(deputy I think) who launched into more threats of a £500 fine and insisted I was 50% to blame and that was why they had been 'lenient' but imposed the €50 for a new Dekpra and not €500 penalty! Hacked off again!

As said, not much to tie to but nice town and great spot.
