Popular port is located a short distance from the city and is easily identifiable by a fortress with a lighthouse and three windmills on the pier. Much of the eastern pier, as well as a larger part of the dock in the south eastern corner, are reserved for charter boats. In summer you will often have three boats moored away from the dock.
The harbor is well protected on all sides, and bottom provides a good grip. In summer, many boats avoid the busy port and anchor the eastern side of Mandraki, where they are accommodated summer winds. However, in these areas the sea is beaten by ferry. The port is well equipped to repair and can provide all the necessary supplies.

You can get gasoline in town, and it can also be engaged in the dock. There are facilities for repairs, and all supplies are readily available.
