Sitia Harbour, Crete, Greece
Not to be used for navigation
DESCRIPTIONThis is a large harbour but with surprisingly few facilities. Entrance is wide and clean. Transient boats side-tie to the inner breakwater as shown (green line). Note: The wind picked up gravel and dust from the inner breakwater and plastered our boat with it. The breakwater is currently the home of construction concrete blocks and a good amount of related debris is strewn around.
MOORINGThe inner wall of the breakwater appears well protected both inside and outside the harbour proper. There are ample bollards for side-tieing.
FACILITIES ASHOREWIFI: We were unable to pick up an unsecured wifi signal on the boat. Most of the cafes around the harbour offer free wifi.
UTILITIES: There is no electricity available in the harbour. There is a water faucet buried in the breakwater pavement about halfway along. We did not test it.
GROCERY STORES: Sitia is a large, if uninspiring, town. It has ample shops of all description.
CAR RENTAL: Many.
RESTAURANTS: Many. The best is reputed to be "The Balcony" near the harbour. We did not try it but the menu looked inviting. Opposite is a small organic food shop with the same ownership.
