Anchorage

  Kali Limenes is the site of an ancient city called Lassea, which was a good harbour city during Greco-Roman times. No excavations have been done here yet. The site is a good anchorage even today. There is a small island just outside the anchorage where oil tankers approach for oil banking. It is reputed that St. Paul landed here on his way to Rome.

Location: 34*55'.7 24*48'.0 (28920) 42188 VHF Ch 12
Kali Limenes is located on the south coast of Crete on the east side of the Akrotiri Lithinon. There are large white oil storage tanks on the small island of Agios Pavlos and on the west side, the larger island of Megalonissi.

Facilities: There are few facilities in Kali Limenes outside a few tavernas and rent rooms. There are however Port Police and Customs.

Comments: Kali Limenes is one of the 2 safest and best anchorages on the south coast of Crete, there is very good protection in west and north winds. Small boats can find additional shelter from southwest and north winds on the land side of Megalonissi. Many tankers also find shelter here.
