of hotels along the shore east and west of the harbour. There is a small white
church on a hill on the west side of the harbour wall.

provisions and fuel are in the town. There are no port authorities here. Hersonisos
has doctors, dentists, and pharmacies as well as banks, post, and telephone
offices. Few repair facilities are here. Hotel rooms during full season are
impossible to find.
Comments: Stern-to or bow-to moorings or anchoring of in the harbour mole provides
good shelter in north and north west winds. The harbour is open to the east.
There is one light for the harbour. A night approach should not be attempted
and care should be taken in the day. There are many submerged reefs around the
harbour and along the coast.
