Information
Skala Th ra or Skala Fira is the main harbor and where the cruise ships call. It is not really a harbor but a quay. There is a lot swell into the bay. The shelter is not great. It is too deep here to anchor so, yachts tie to one of two buys and go stern-to. The problem here is that when a boat wants to depart, the boats on the outside have to untie. Under these conditions it is hard to leave your boat unattended and go sight seeing. It may be preferable to use another anchorage. Going up to the town one can either take the cable car or the more picturesque mules. Local legend has it that the souls of "bad people," when they die, become these mules that ferry the tourist up the windy path.

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 .

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.

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.

Restaurants
Fanari restaurant
Welcome to Fanari restaurant, an old family bakery with a history dating over a 100 years now operates as a restaurant. A privately owned building situated at the Caldera, perhaps the only one in its area, offers delicious traditional tastes with many "creative" accents all coming from locally sourced produce of Santorini.
We are located in the most central part of Fira, the Caldera, just a few meters away from the main square. We welcome you to enjoy the traditional Greek cuisine but also unique local recipes, seafood and fresh fish. All this, while enjoying the view to the Caldera, in a friendly and warm atmosphere with prices that are 'within reach'.
The German Italian tourist guide DUMONT, as well as the LONELY PLANET MEDITERRANEAN EUROPE, recommends our restaurant for its breathtaking view, its traditional Greek cuisine and the high quality dishes at affordable prices. Ask for our menu for groups!
The wine very much acclaimed for many Prestigious awards and certificates was cultivated on the island for thousands of years and is a favorite delicacy at the island's festivals. At Fanari restaurant we use the local tomato described as "explosive " and rich in taste. We use it sun-dried in order to add flavor to sauces and salads. The white eggplant broiled becomes sweet and light, while in combination with the Greek cheeses, basil and tomato sauce, becomes one of the tastiest and flavorful dishes you will ever try. The humble zucchini, boiled, fried or as zucchini balls with dill and feta cheese will thrill you. Mint, a favorite herb, adds flavor to tomato balls, perhaps the island's tastiest dish, worthy of being called gourmet.
The sweets are simple yet imaginative. The Santorini pudding has the fragrance of cinnamon, while the famous sweets of the island, the "meletinia", made of skim milk cheese and scented with mastic and vanilla, are a must for every household during Easter.
We look forward to your visit, please follow the website link below for further information about our restaurant and photos which alone will want you to visit.
