Finikas is a favorite harbor while crossing the Aegean. It combines excellent shelter with a convivial place to re-provision. There are two options here: either to moor at the small marina or to anchor off-shore.
Space is limited inside the harbor and most yachts moor on the outside of the breakwater. These berths (and, indeed, the whole anchorage) are completely exposed in any southerly winds. In these conditions, shelter is better in Ermoupolis.
