After years of lying neglected and unfinished, Mytilene (or Mytilini) Marina on the island of Lesvos finally opened in July 2010 and now offers a much-needed, sheltered port of call or permanent base for yachts cruising the northern Aegean. In 2012 the marina was acquired by a consortium headed by the Setur company.

Situated at the southern end of the large harbour of Mytilene on the E coast of the island, the marina offers 222 berths for yachts of up to 20 metres plus a small area of hard standing for up to 30 yachts. The main facilities are in place and it is to be expected that further improvements will follow as the marina fills up.

Communication

Contact Mytilene Marina on VHF channel 71 prior to entry. Office operates 0800 - 2100.

Navigation

The marina lies in the SW corner of the large harbour of Mytilene, S of the commercial harbour. Entry is either on the E or W side of the long detached breakwater that protects the harbour (using the W entrance avoids the usual insistent haranguing of the port police on entry to Mytilene harbour). Entry to the marina itself is from NNW and depths in the entrance are 5.0 – 6.0 metres.

Entrance

This marina is a port of entry/exit.

Submit details about facilities for checking in - where to dock, location of immigration & customs, etc.

Berthing

Marina staff will usually be awaiting you in the entrance (assuming you have called on VHF first) to direct you to a berth and help you moor up. Berths are either bows or stern to on laid moorings on the quayed breakwaters or, for smaller vessels, alongside on finger pontoons.

Facilities

Services are still being organized in the marina, but currently it offers:

  • Marina reception
  • Chandlery
  • Laundry - via the mini market
  • Minimarket
  • Up market Bar/restaurant in newly built Yacht Club (2015). Several tavernas just outside the gate.
  • Toilets and showers
  • Car parking
  • Internet terminal
  • Wifi

Repairs

No boatyard but a small hard standing area for around 30 yachts. Lift out via mobile crane (up to 12 T).

  • Manolis Skoulikaris runs a small service operation out of the Levos Marina Shop. He is very good and reasonably priced +30 698 237 7015 emskoulikaris@gmail.com

Security

While car access is limited overall security is poor. The marina is used by the local residents virtually as a public park.

Location

The marina is in a quiet residential area away from the bustle and noise of the main harbour. There is an excellent Eurospar supermarket 200 metres N on the road going into the town. There are also several pizza restaurants, cafes and pitta takeaways nearby.

Transportation

The marina is 10 minutes by taxi from Lesvos airport.

Price

Current daily berthing price for typical 13 metre yacht Euros 44 (March 2013). Extra charge for water and electricity. At present (March 2013) the marina is offering selective 50% discounts for stays of anything from two days to 24 months.

  • The director, Mr. Tsampodimos Ioannis, and receptionist Vivi are exceptionally friendly and the marina is a peaceful haven compared with the cacophany and (in summer) stench of the main harbour --Athene of Lymington 09:45, 9 May 2011 (BST)
  • The marina and the facilities are very clean and the personnel very friendly. However the toilet seats (gents & ladies) are broken and there are no hooks or soap holders in the showers --Istioploos 15:26, 29 August 2013 (BST)
  • Possibly the most attentive service we've seen in recent years. Anastasia Viriliz on the front desk was very helpful in organizing tours, taxis and restaurants. Monterey June 2015
