Katakolon (Port of entry)

Average 0 stars from 0 user reviews (add a review)

Coordinates: 037° 39.350' N , 021° 19.653' E
Country: Greece

Anchor: in 10 ft. of water over sand and weed, just north of the harbour entrance, very good holding. 
Moor: We checked out the harbour and there was only 4 other boats stern to with their anchors down as there is no laid moorings. Word of caution, while we were anchored a strong easterly came in, the crews on the boats that were stern to in the harbour could not get off/on to the boat because of the swell.
Checking into Greece is a two-step job, first you go to immigration where you are issued a cruising log, good for 6 months at a cost of Euro 30.00; passport was seen but not stamped as we came from another EU country. Then you take all the paperwork downstairs to the harbour police and if you are in the marina/harbour you pay, if anchor there is no charge. 
The boat yard seems to be functional but we never seen anyone working and the marina office was always closed in the few days we went buy. This is also a cruise ship terminal. 
Ashore: a small supermarket, many tourist shops, and restaurants on the waterfront. To get a Greek SIM card you will have to go to the next town of Pyrgos, where you will find any thing you need. 
Don't miss: the ancient city of Olympia is must see site. You can visit Olympia buy bus, taxi or a short trip on a train that only costs 5.00 Euro/person.
