The harbor of Ayios Efstratios

There is only one port, the harbor of Ayios Efstratios. It provides fairly good shelter from the meltemi but it is open to SW. Go stern-to the usually crowded by fishing boats quay, avoiding the SW corner where the ferry from Limnos docks. The bottom is sandy with scattered rocks and affords good holding, if you hit the sandy patch. Fortunately the water here is very clear. A large rectangular basin was built to the west and adjacent to the fishing harbour to serve ferries. Yachts can moor alongside its western mole or go stern to this mole.

The most famous of these deportees was the celebrated composer Mikis Theodorakis. In 1968, an earthquake devastated the houses of the little port village. Fishing and low-level tourism are the main occupations of today's inhabitants.
