Athens Zea Marina  37ºN55'  023ºE39'

September 2010

The picture of our plotter illustrates the traffic jam at the approach of the Piraeus and the marinas around Athens. We selected the Zea Marina that is part of the group MedMarinas. You will recognize the giant Olympic flame at its entrance. The first basin is reserved for the super and mega yachts, then you have a small canal, where visitors are berthed (you have to book), then you have the second basin where fishers boats , yachts up to 25 m. are moored and a few wrecks! For a 40 feet S/Y
you will pay around 50€ , plus 7 € for the card (no refund) that gives access to the bathrooms (only one shower for the whole marina!) and the water and electricity tower that are charged separately (4€ for 1000L. water). There are a few bars around the quay and alittle further you will fin d two supermarkets, very good ship chandles (Lewmar, Raymarine, Harken, etc). The Piraeus is located 30’ walk, while the Acropolis is 30’ by taxi.

Varkiza    37ºN49'  023ºE48'

September 2010

The bay of Varis is located a few Nm from the Vougliagmeni marina, famous...for having few places for visitors! Its town seems to be quite modern with nice apartments blocks, expensive restaurants and VIP beach clubs. Its little port offers only a few places on the South side of its external mole. The other mole is reserved to the fishing boats, and the other pontoons offer little place and little depth. The best is to anchor outside the mole or in front of the large beach, but note that on week ends the discos emits lots of decibels!
