    Very surprised at the previous reviews. The bay is absolutely not protected from meltem. Reported at 23 knots gusting to 27, we had gusts to 36 knots near the southern anchorage of the temple. We first tried to anchor very close to the small North East beaches but it is a rock bottom where the anchor hangs very badly. In the end we did like the others… 4m deep and 50m of chain to hold on… the bay is very puffy.

    Très surpris des commentaires précédents. La baie n’est absolument pas protégée du meltem. Annoncé à 23 noeuds rafales à 27, on a eu des rafales à 36 noeuds près du mouillage sud du temple. Nous avons d'abord essayé de mouiller très proche des petites plages Nord Est mais c’est un fond de roches où l’ancre accroche très mal. Finalement on a fait comme les autres … 4m de profondeur et 50m de chaîne pour tenir … ça moutonne fort dans la baie.

    Very good protection. Opportunity to visit the ancient site, which it seems, was as important as Delos, during the day. There are also shuttles that bring visitors from anti Paros.

    Très bonne protection. Possibilité de visiter le site antique, qui il paraît, était aussi important que Délos, la journée. Il y a d ailleurs des navettes qui amènent les visiteurs d'anti Paros.

    Nice place. There is little depth, you have to be attentive to the probe. We spent the night in 2 meters with 60 chain. Very good grip. The visit to the ruins is worth it for the ease of access, go with the dinghy to a wooden jetty. In that area you can see the dogs from afar. It is accessed by a new concrete path. Advisable to see the sunset.

    Bonito lugar. Hay poca profundidad, hay que estar atento a la sonda. Pasamos la noche en 2 metros con 60 de cadena. Muy buen agarre. La visita a las ruinas merece la pena por la facilidad para acceder, dirigirse con el dingui hasta un embarcadero de madera. En esa zona se ven los perros de lejos. Se accede por un camino de hormigón nuevo. Aconsejable ver la puesta de sol.
