Mandraki marina is in reality the older harbour of Rhodos -magnificent- town. It is a public port that does NOT offer the facilities of a modern private marina. The port alike the town of Rhodos occupies the northernmost tip of the island right below the medieval castle and opposite the Market Square of Rhodes, a 30 minute drive from the airport and 20 minutes walk from the commercial (ferry) port of Rhodos. The facilities within the harbour area can give a minimum of comfort to the charterers since there is power, water and supermarkets near the yachts.
Mandraki harbor was the main harbor of Rhodes for almost 2,500 years. On the left side you can see the entrance to the harbor and the two deer, (it is believed that the Colossus of Rhodes was standing there), a Rhodian symbol of strength and wealth. Mandraki Harbour still remains very active, with lots of sailboats, private yachts and small cruise boats that offer trips around Rhodes and other nearby islands.
Berth where directed or where convenient. The harbour is hopelessly crowded in the summer, with yachts often two or three out of the quay. Mandraki is now designated as a marina, although as yet few additional facilities have been introduced. yachts can also go on the pontoon on the W side, just inside the entrance, if there is room
Good, all around shelter in the harbour. Numerous boats winter afloat here. Fouled anchors are a common occurrence, simply because there are so many yachts. A large mooring chain, lying approximately 30m out of the quay, is also easily fouled.
