    Good anchorage, well sheltered with good hold. A small mini-market offers everything you need including gas. Be sure to check out the paintings of the abandoned hotel in the nearby cove.

    Bon mouillage bien abrité avec une bonne tenue. Une petite supérette offre tout le nécessaire y compris le gaz. N’hésitez pas à aller voir les peintures de l’hôtel abandonné dans la crique voisine.

    This is an alternative to the cove at the abandoned resort. It has ok protection from north winds, but a swell can wrap around into the cove. Don't go too close to shore. It gets shallow quickly. You will want to make sure you anchor on sand. There are many large slabs of rock, and smaller rocks, that will be an issue. There is a KTEL bus stop between the taverna and the Finikas hotel, with service to Naxos town. Or you can take a taxi for 35 euros. The hotel has a nice dinner.
