    12.03.2020 Absolutely great, authentic marina, village, castle, chora and environment. Worth a visit. Snowy tips of Crete mountains can be seen on the way to chora. Beware of Northern gusts over the mountains, so the only way to stand at key is stern to. Check the hooks and joints on key for mooring lines as everything is old and rusty, so they can easily shafe through in less than few hours. There is always some swell. No water or electricity I could see there.

    My crush that makes me want to go back. There is a special atmosphere that emanates from this village. There is a choice in affordable taverns and the food is plentiful. The beach is an invitation to swim. The quay of the small port has equipment that cannot be used. We are asked to go to the second restaurant to get a card but they do not sell any. We can have water but no electricity. The north wind is blowing in at 25 knots, so we have to move the stern away from the quay. But despite this discomfort, I will return.

    Mon coup de cœur qui me donne envie d'y retourner. Il y a une ambiance spéciale qui se dégage de ce village. Il y a un choix dans les tavernes abordables et les plats sont copieux. La plage est une invitation à nager. Le quai du petit port à des équipements que l'on ne peut pas utiliser. On nous demande d'aller au second resto pour prendre une carte mais ils n'en vendent pas. On peut avoir de l'eau mais pas d'électricité. Le vent de nord s'engouffre par 25 nœuds, il faut donc écarter la poupe du quai. Mais malgré cet inconfort, j'y retournerai.

    Superb little village of Kapsali with a wharf, taverns, a friendly car rental company Panayotis and a diving club. We had a great first night and day with a southwesterly wind longside on the quay in this very calm bay. Unfortunately at the end of the second night an easterly wind 3 Beaufort rose without being disturbing but generating a strong southerly swell forcing us to put the stern to the quay (quite far) and causing us to undergo a significant roll, trough of 0 , 8 m.

    Superbe petit village de Kapsali avec un quai, des tavernes, un loueur de voitures sympathique Panayotis et un club de plongée. Nous avons passé une excellente première nuit et jour avec un vent du sud-ouest en longside sur le quai dans cette baie très calme. Malheureusement en fin de seconde nuit un vent d'Est 3 Beaufort s'est levé sans être gênant mais générant une forte houle de sud nous obligeant à mettre la poupe au quai (assez loin) et nous faisant subir un roulis important, creux de 0,8 m.
