Kavia (KEA)  37ºN34'  024ºE16'

September 2010

As the meltemi is forecast in the next days, we did no go to the main town of the island, Limin Ayios Nikolaou, that does not offer the best shelter. Making a stop over before sailing to Kithnos that is better protected, we dropped  our anchor in the Kavia Gulf. There is not really a village, only a few tavernas, bars and beach clubs. Nevertheless the place has a great potential as there are many houses and one hotel being build, all respecting a same style, build in stone with maximum two levels. Thre are in the bay a few laid moorings for the locals and a lot of space  in front of the three beaches to anchor in 5 m. in hard sand. The water is very clear.

Merikha ( KITHNOS)  37ºN23'  024ºE23'

September 2010

Merikha is located on the West coast of the island Kithnos. All the small houses are white, here starts the typical post card of Greece!  A ferry line and some tankers are using its little port that has a section reserved to the yachts. Alongside the quay there is a depth of around 3 m. , water and electricity are available. You can also moor in the little bay before entering the port, or on the SW of the bay of the port. But take care because the cargo ships plant their anchor alongside the W. waterfront! A truck can deliver gas oil (phone number indicated on a board). There are a lot of tavernas along side the port and the beach, as well as two supermarkets (fresh bread in the morning). The port offers a good protection to the meltemi.

Kolona, Fikiadha, Apokriosis (KITNOS)  37ºN24'  024ºE23'

September 2010

The bays of Kolona, Fikiadha and Apokriosis are located 2 NM North of Merikha. The two first ones are only separated by a sand dune. All offer good protection to the Meltemi. You will find only a few houses, two tavernas and a chapel. It is the perfect place for long walks.
Kolona offers also the particularity to have a hot spring just on the border of the sea, transformed by the locals, with stones into a Jacuzzi. The place is wonderfull, but should be avoided during the Week Ends as lots of yachts arrive from Athens.
