    Asteria | Sailboat — 12 m

    Deep in the centre of the bay (30m) means that with boats on long lines all around the edge there is probably only enough room for a couple of boats to swing in the centre. In relatively light winds (N) we put a line ashore and had a peaceful night. Pleasant enough stop. Might be exposed in stronger winds. Frequent water taxis speed into the bay and take people back and forth to Hydra. More frequent during the evening than during the day. €20 each direction for a taxi full. (Info. From taverna owner) 31 Aug 2019. We stayed in the bay and ate at the taverna. Only one open. Food average but ok. The next day we tried to take the boat into Hydra to provision but all berths full so we didn’t visit. In retrospect we should have left the boat moored in Mandraki and walked to Hydra - looks like a decent road connecting the two.

    Good alternative to the port of Hydra. Good wind protection in general, but you have to put chain lengths! Funds not very clean, and some problems of anchor lifts. Beware, the Taverna restaurant is very well placed, very helpful staff, but the food is ...

    Bonne alternative au port de Hydra. Bonne protection aux vents en général, mais il faut mettre des longueurs de chaînes! Fonds pas très propres, et quelques problèmes de levers d'ancres. Attention, le restaurant Taverna est très bien placé, personnel très serviable, mais la nourriture...

  • Deep mooring, more than 20 m, requires chain length

    Mouillage profond, plus de 20 m, il faut de la longueur de chaîne
