|by Day||Windmills NE of the harbour are conspicuous when coming from the North or South.||Harbour VHF|
|by Night||Light in the middle of the entry: FI.G2s.||Rescue|
|Dangers||Take care to the reefs near Nisis Antipsara and Vrakhonisis. Prudent approach from the West advisable.
The wind blows here stronger than elsewhere. If there is 20 kts of NW or NE wind, add some Bf for the passage between Psara island and its islets. Same phenomenon in the bay before the harbour. Take in account that the passage is generally much more windy and the sea more agitated between Chios island and Psara island.

|Anchorage||The E quay is not approachable at less than 4-5m because rocks limit its access. The best berths are in front of the square, back to quay. One shall know that, by strong NE wind, it is better to go elsewhere or sail away because it is absolutely not comfortable.
Protection except from NE to SE winds. It is possible to moor at the commercial quay, but leaving space with the quay and with a long mooring line. In the fishing harbour, ask for space.
A new pontoon stretches from the N end of the town quay to the NE. If you anchor, stay N of the Green buoy.
