This is one of the most spectacular islands we have been to, with very lush hills and very inviting for the soul. Vathy has a wonderful 'old Greece' feel. This is the home of Odysseus the main character from the book Odyssey by Homer. Flotillas tend to use the north quay.
Anchor: anchorage is excellent with great holding in 15 ft. of water. The wind here blows very strong from the north around 13:00 hours during the day for a couple of hours but not to worry if your anchor is dug in you will be fine.
Ashore: you will find many restaurants and much provisioning from the many small markets. There is a great bakery where you tie up your dingy. Very helpful port police. Water is available.
