Anchorages

There is only one good summer anchorage, a double bay at the S side of the island. The shoreline is mostly quite steep. The best place to anchor is at the northern extremity where we were at a depth of about 8 meters. Shore lines are a must with a strong meltemi but it is difficult to find rocks to tie to, especially if you go in at night. If one goes in during the day it would be better to anchor a bit further in with a stern anchor and 2 lines from the bow to the head of the inner bay. The bay on the west side, whose opening faces north, is an attractive anchorage and would be good for calm weather or southerlies but is no good for the usual summer conditions.
