    With all the previous comments on both the port and the anchorage, we expected a police visit ....... well we stayed 4 days at anchor without seeing the shadow of a kepi !!! The chief of police had to be transferred !!!!! We had chosen this anchorage because strong south was announced. We were well protected and when calm returned we hired a car from the ferry agency to visit Mistra, not to be missed as is the Sparta-kalamata-Aeropoli-Githio road, a bit long but superb! In summary, very good anchorage unless there is a North-East or East wind, a town full of charm and well stocked.

    Avec tous les commentaires précédents aussi bien sur le port que sur le mouillage, nous nous attendions à une visite policière .......et bien nous sommes restés 4 jours au mouillage sans voir l’ombre d’un képi !!! Le chef de la police a dû être muté !!!!! Nous avions choisi ce mouillage car du Sud fort était annoncé. Nous avons été bien protégés et quand le calme est revenu nous avons loué une voiture à l’agence des ferrys pour visiter Mistra, à ne surtout pas manquer tout comme la route Sparte-kalamata-Aeropoli-Githio , un peu long mais superbe ! En résumé très bon mouillage sauf si vent dû Nord-Est ou d’Est, ville pleine de charme et bien achalandée.

    The anchorage is open to west and even if there is a little wind and small waves, the reflection from the quay makes choppy seas which beat the transom. Very uncomfortable in these conditions. Otherwise, good bus connection to Sparta and thus to Mistras. And Saga on the quay is an outstanding fish restaurant.

    Anchorage has very soft silt bottom, holding poor. Open to N-NE-E, good shelter otherwise. Nice town, good supermarket. Good live music from Bohemia hotel near anchorage. Sewer smell when the wind dies. Port police came with their big RIB and insisted we come to their office, so had to dinghy ashore again. Polite and professional, but could have checked our papers on the boat just as well.
