Today we took the tender into town. Short ride into
the marina from the boat. This small town also has a small marina that
handles about 15 sailboats along with that many fishing boats. They
expanded the marina to infuse more tourism via boaters and it has worked.
We watched several sailboats head directly for the marina, so they knew where
they were headed. While small inside it does have appropriate angles to
drop the anchor and stern to on the quay. Water and electric is
available, electric is 3 Euro per kilowatt, about ten times the cost of a
mainland residential charge. But only a couple of Euros are needed for a
The town is small and the waterfront is being further
upgraded, actually too much trying to be something it is not. However it
still is nice. This time of year it is nearly deserted but we like that.
Part of the marina is based on the old Venetian fort that
was built to defend the area. It still serves its purpose but is sinking
into the water a bit over the years.
Overall the area is very nice and apparently attracts the
rich and famous. We were not recognized!
Across the harbor are a couple of very nice and large
estates as well as several upscale resorts. Check Google Maps for the
resort with the circular swimming pool with a water slide down to the beach.
Venetian fort still defending the harbor, at least from
waves now a days.
Mainstreet. New stoneworks with more underway.
Makes a very nice place for a day visit.
