anchor and tie back to N or S wall, the holding is good. The N wall is preferred because the restaurants and bars can be noisy on the S wall. Depth at the entrance is about 3.5m (keep closer to the outer wall) and 4-8m through most of the harbour but it gets shallower on the W side.
July 2018 depths in the entrance down to 2.2m at lowest point.
Ashore: good selection of tavernas, expensive small supermarket and bakery on edge of town.
Don't miss: Nisiros is well worth exploring by car or scooter, you can drive right down into the volcano caldera. We used the hire car place in the NW corner, very friendly and helpful. You can see the whole Island in a day on a scooter with less than 5 Euro of petrol.
Beware of the water melon man selling from a battered car. We bartered from E5 down to E3 but it wasn't worth it, horrible, tasteless melons. It all went in the bin.
As of 01,09.18 there is a harbour master. €6.50 per night for 12m. He doesn't seem to work on sunday.

A small town harbour which can become very busy mid season. Narrow, shallow channel to pass through on entry, 2.2 meters recording on Navionics yet no issues noticed with all sizes of yacht entering. Port police visit every afternoon to check papers, friendly people. No harbour fees at present as harbour master is no longer employed. Electric available scantily, water intermittently switched on. Captains house restaurant provide car/ scooter hire (all companies charge identical prices on our search) Restaurants all similar in price.
Volcano experience great, smelly but worth the visit.
