The new marina constructed east of Akrotiri Mandraki has full facilities and can accommodate many boats. Approaching from the east the white government buildings above the marina can easily be seen. From the west you pass the old harbour, round Akrotiri Mandraki and the harbour is evident.

Facilities: The new marina provides full services, electricity and water on the quay. Fuel refills are easily arranged. There are Port Police, Customs and Immigration as Agios Nikolaos is a Port of Entry. The city of Agios Nikolaos has a General Hospital, private doctors, dentists, and pharmacies.
