    Anthos | Sailboat — 13 m

    Anchore in 8-12m, look for the bright sand areas, providing good hold in 30 knt wind. Seagras and some rocks depending on location. Even sheltered from North blows Meltemi quite strong through, put out enough chain ( 40m) Visit the temple of Poseidon on the hill, very nice. Entrance fee €8. Pass the buoys right hand side and leave the dinghy at the right corner of the the beach. Follow the path going up the hill to the road. Around 10min walk.

    Very nice anchorage at the foot of the temple of Poseidon. Good behavior on sand bottom, funds between 5 and 10 m. The beaches are rather privatized (swimming buoys). The visit of the temple is 10 minutes. Just beacher on the beach and take a path to the right of the beach.

    Très joli mouillage au pied du temple de Poseidon. Bonne tenue sur fond de sable, fonds entre 5 et 10 m. Les plages sont plutôt privatisées (bouées de baignade). La visite du temple est à 10 mn. Il suffit de beacher sur la plage et de prendre un sentier à droite de la plage.

    Ideal for visiting the temple at sunset

    Idéal pour la visite du temple au coucher de soleil
