Places to moor
· Ormos Mourtia An open bay located SW of Alonisos and offering fair shelter from the meltemi. Mooring is in the bay. There is no fuel or water available. If the weather is unstable it is far safe to moor in the harbor of Patitri
Patitiri â€œ Well sheltered from the meltemi and a good area to stock up. Mooring is stern or bow to, fuel & water are available at the quay. A short trip to the old village of Alonisos is nice and about a 30 minute walk. In general the harbor is very picturesque as it is surrounded by cliffs and pine trees and remains unspoiled.
Votsi - North of Patitri offers a good shelter from prevailing winds. Mooring is best off the small quay which is located to the east. There is limited fuel, a water truck can be arranged but this is of course if you find to moor on the quay.
Ormos Tzorti - A cove offering good shelter from the meltemi and a nice place for swimming. Anchor where ever possible and in rough weather take a long line ashore. The beaches are with fine sand and pine trees.
Steni Vala - This cove offers good shelter from the meltemi but is exposed to SW winds. There is a small quay but not recommend as the depth is one meter. There are small quaint taverns on shore.
Ormos Firakos - This bay is not recommend to spend the night as it is very exposed to the weather, but if it is a calm day it is recommend for a swim and lunch
