Entering the Pteleus bay, we have three bays to recite. Starting from the right we will find Pigadi bay with its small harbor. It is protected from all times and the anchorage keeps well. Next bay and to our right is Loutro, which has no harbor but protects you from all weather and you can stay in the evening. Below we will find the bay of Achilleion with its small harbor which is also protected by all weathers. Prefer the eastern pier for better anchor. Be aware of why there are irons protruding along the mole. Going down to the beach, the depth decreases, from here you can head towards Achilleion and Pteleios by land. Next to the harbor there is the Sea Museum.

The port of Nea Anchialos is kept from all times of winter and summer. Because the interior of the harbor has a shallow depth, we come in carefully. Guests are given space in the southwest part of the harbor and you can also join the entrance to the right when there is no air but many balloons because the waves will kick you. In case you do not find a place it is good to visit the fishermen’s club at the end of the harbor who will definitely serve you. In the harbor and next to the fishermen’s club you will find the ancient wall and below the archaeological site of Nea Anchialos. The port provides gas, water, card, mail, laundry, gas, taverns, small repairs.
