The Harbour
Access Warning: if you want to moor at quay, what is convenient for victualling or go to the restaurant (that are very good) or make water (free), one shall wary of the E part. Irons for concrete extrude underwater from the quay and may pierce through a hull. It is better to moor on the West of the quay.  Description This harbour is not so busy and very sympathetic. But one must come soon to the harbour during High Season because berths are looked after.
It is then possible to anchor in Koukouvitsa and come to the town by feet by the seaside or with the dinghy. 
Services Water (free) at quay. No electricity.  Draught  
Heavy svces   Anchorage Anchorage vrey safe (to the contrary of the quay) behind the breakwater (big stones) and in the two little creeks in the W-NW.
The mooring rings of the quay are rusted. Works in progress on the quay and the breakwater. It should be the building of a closed harbour. A new quay has been built, but the draught is not known (April 2006).
