Anchorages

Mt Athos at dawn from the anchorage at the head of the bay

There are a number of places to anchor around the bay, with varying protection, as shown on the diagram.

The bottom is mostly sand with some weed. Good holding.

With prolonged north-easterly winds a swell comes into the bay. Some protection can be gained by tucking into the deeper coves on the southern side of the bay, including behind the breakwater in the central cove in the south.

There is a good view of Mt Athos from the main bay.
