A well protected harbor with good facilities and a bustling community. The harbor serves as a base for many small local tour operators taking people to the blue wineries and shipwreck beach. The ferry from Kefalonia also docks here. Uncommonable but not dangerous, especialy if it is docked in the SEZ corner of the harbor where you can find free water, electricity and showers lazy lines if required. If docked side too, make sure you have plenty of fenders between you and the high wall, which is about 2m high, which can make it difficult if you have low freeboard. The effect can also affect this issue, which has a significant difference to the movement of the boat wake. Approach to the harbor is via the NW or NE, there is an island directly from the entrance to two channels, both with adequate depth of 10+ m. During the day there will be someone on the dock waving you in. Do not be put off by them, they are here to welcome you to their destination. If anchoring take care to leave the road. The closer in one gets the most mooring lines and potential of fouling increases. If entering at night, they should not be allowed to leave the sea. The entrance to the sea has no flashing light on the island. The taverna outside the east wall is providing significant light and there is a tall light about 50m down the east wall illuminating the dock.

We were stranded here for 3 weeks in June after we left the harbor. While the traffic from the local boats is at a minimum, it is highly recommended, especially during the week when it is a little quieter. The best part about it is the people, we were humbled by how welcoming and helpful Dimitri and his crew from Theodsris Cruises and Taverna Porto were. They helped us make our boat safe and secure during our time of need. We are on the SE Corner. While the east wall is quiet and a bit cooler, the wind and boat chop is here. Whilst on the SE, there is water, electricity and showers available at the Porto Taverna. These services are offered free, but it is obviously polite to support the Taverna during one's stay. Again we can not quite express how pleasantly surprised we have been able to welcome you back to the world.
