The Harbour
Access   Description Not many berths because it is a fishing harbour. So one must ask locals where to berth.
Better berth in the NE of the harbour. But watch the draught in the SE part of the quay, where it is only 1,50 to 1,60m draught. 
Services   Draught <1m near the beach; <1,80-3,50 at quay.

Rental svces  
Various svces Restaurants by the quays. Excellent fish meals. 
Setting Fishing harbour with a remarkable castle built on an isolated rock. A beach appreciated by Turkish holidaymakers. Pine wood and sand dunes (this sand would have healing virtues for rhumatism and sciatic).  Tourism
