The approaches to Maronia are straight forward.

Berthing

Maronia Harbor

Maronia Harbor

The small harbor of Maronia is a delightful place. There is 4-5 m depth along the W breakwater, inside the harbor, to tie side-to. Good shelter from the meltemi.

Danger: The foundations of the ancient harbor are just below the surface right in the middle of the port and E of the breakwater.

Marinas & Yacht Clubs

None.

There are some nice coves W of the Maronia Peninsula. We spend the night in one at 6 m depth and were reasonably well sheltered from the meltemi although there was some swell. On our way E we saw another cove about 1 nM further towards Alexandroupolis.
