    Mooring practicable for a short stop. With bad weather a bit of a wave enters. Moor in front of the beach in 4 meters. Bay defaced by man, as often happens.

    Ormeggio praticabile per una breve sosta. Con il meltempo entra un po' di onda . Ormeggiate davanti alla spiaggia in 4 mt. Baia deturpata dall'uomo, come spesso avviene.

    We too were alone in this anchorage: a chilling setting far from tourist clichés. a few goats in buildings long deserted. A monument erected in memory of those who perished in this penitentiary which was not a vacation resort! Greece is that too. A step not to be missed. Sandy bottom and good holding grass.

    Nous aussi nous étions seuls dans ce mouillage : décor glaçant loin des clichés touristiques . quelques chèvres dans des bâtiments désertés depuis longtemps. Un monument érigé en mémoire de ceux qui ont péri dans ce pénitencier qui ne fut pas un lieu de villégiature ! La Grèce c’est aussi ça. Une étape à ne pas manquer. Fond de sable et herbier bonne tenue.

    Very nice expedition. Good anchorage. The old feeder is not suitable, it is too shallow and fragments are lying in front of it.

    Sehr schöne Expedition. Guter Ankergrund. Der alte Anleger ist nicht geeignet, es ist zu flach und Bruchstücke liegen davor.
