It is not easy by day to distinguish the entrance to the bay when approaching from the northwest; however the monastery on the peak of the peninsula is a characteristic land mark. The harbour is situated on the western side of the bay and protected by a quay extending north to south.
It is usually full of fishing caiques with only a few available berths near the head of the quay. Provides good protection in all weather barring strong southerlies when waves surge over the break water and create strong swell in the harbour.
The port has no water, fuel may be delivered. There are restaurants and within walking distance bars, taverns and supermarkets.
