Welcome to Vlychada, Santorini
The marina provides alongside berthing in secure conditions with water, electricity, WCs and WiFi network included in the (June 2009) mooring fee of 20. The harbour is the only well protected harbour or anchorage on the island. The harbour tends to silt during the winter storms and dredging operations are virtually constant to keep the depths in the harbour at around 2.5 to 3.0 meters.
Currently (June 2009) dredging operations are taking place in the outer harbour and the principal berths available for visiting yachts are alongside the two outer arms of the semi-circular quays, where rafting up is usually necessary. There is sometimes space for a few yachts in the inner harbour (either on an anchor moor or alongside), but it is often full of local day charter catamarans and fishing boats. The "marina" is about a 20 minute drive from Fira. The marina office or the restaurants on the cliffs above can arrange for car or scooter rental. Both the restaurants are very friendly to yachtsmen and serve good food.
The marina of Vlichada is the only port where you can safely moor the yacht during storms or leave the yacht unattended Important: the approach is rather treacherous with two submerged ancient moles blocking the most logical way in. To avoid this and other obstacles: steer a course of 45 towards any point between the chimneys and the blue hotel till you see the entrance of the marina at 90 .
Note, that lots of charts and guides erroneously only mention one breakwater. And although the northern one is much shorter and not the dangerous one, it is certainly there! Once inside, you still need a watchful eye since the entrance is quite often badly silted up and a nasty submerged block awaits you at your starboard side.
There is a yellow buoy which appears to mark the outer extremity of the submerged east breakwater and should be avoided. An approach from the WSW appears to avoid the shallows You'll see boats completely out of water by sand bars. The walkway between the pier NW is closed.
Depth: <2 meters. Port protected from all winds.
Attention to your water inlet engine, it can easily become clogged with algae suspended during maneuvers.
As the bottom of the bay is covered by 50cm of waste algae make long anchorage.
