As mentioned before the film Mediterraneo put the island on the map now being a popular touristresort in high season.
You can make a med mooring to the quayside of the town being in the centre of it all and the marinaindustry has yet not taken over so fees to the Port Authorities are modest.
We choose to anchor below the castle with only a 10mins dinghyride to town centre or a short trip by paddleboard into Mandraki bay and walk over the castle to town.
The castle is as many others from the crusaders (Knights of St John) and with a beautiful view well worth a visit.
In port was all time a Greek navy frigate which daily went out patrolling along the Turkish border (Turkish coast only 2,5 km northeast).
Greece and Turkey have a long history of hostility and the armed conflict on Cyprys (between Greek and Turkish cypriots) is at ceasefire but as far as I know with no treaty of piece signed.
From the city of Kas in Turkey are several ferries coming daily with tourists from Turkey
