ISLAND OF KEA
VOURKARI - KEA ISLAND
Vourkari is the main anchorage for yachts. It is at the NE side of the Ayios Nikolaos Bay. It is very well protected from the meltemi but with strong westerlies there is a very uncomfortable and possible dangerous swell. In that case move to Korissia. Yacht can either anchor off-shore or moor stern-to at the quay. The cove is deep. There is good holding but because of the depth use at least 60 m of chain. Local people (e. g. restaurant owner) are helpful during visitor's mooring operations.
Main town Chora is not far away and the sclupure Lion of Kea attracts tourists
