Marina in Central Greece
Galaxidhi is a small harbour and resort on the N (mainland) coast of Korinthiakos Kolpos (the Gulf of Corinth), 36 miles from the W entrance to the Corinth Canal and 30 miles E of the Rio-Antirio suspension bridge at the entrance to the Gulf. The town has a long history of shipping and shipbuilding and hosts a good nautical museum, but today it is the upscale picturesque haunt of well-heeled Athenians and visiting yachtsmen. The quays here have recently been refurbished, making Galaxidhi one of the most yacht-friendly harbours in the gulf. It is also a handy place to leave your boat for a visit to the ancient site of Delphi. Shelter is good under most conditions, although strong NE winds send in a moderate swell. Visiting yachts either berth alongside on three sides of the concrete jetty at the entrance to the harbour or stern/bows-to using their anchors between here and the row of small boat moorings further up the inlet. Often there will be someone ashore to tell you where to berth. There is space for around 5-6 yachts alongside and 15 on anchor moor. The quay is well supplied with good quality stainless steel mooring rings set into the wall as well as small bollards on top of the quay. The quay has been filled out from that shown on the charts and depths along the quay are greater than 3m. The holding is good in soft mud (it held us for 6 weeks in the winter) and you should lay out plenty of chain if anchor mooring. There are water and electricity points all along the quay (free in the winter).
