Turn left at the inner breakwater and you will see a line
of yachts moored stern-to against the breakwater on your port side, with a
variety of floating piers off to the right. Try the breakwater
first. There are reported to be spaces available at the far end.
There were none during our visit and the only space we could find had no laid
lines. We were unwilling to drop an anchor in this harbour so found a
space on the the floating piers to your right. This proved to
be a mistake. The charge was €90 per night for our 50' and it is a
very long walk through the secure shipyard to get
into the city of Palermo (we were
also concerned that we would be locked out if we stayed out in the evening.
This is a dirty commercial harbour with a lot of traffic,
including a rowing club and a kayaking club who practice in the harbour so keep
a good lookout for boats large and small. Palermo is a tough town
too. See our
description on our
main site for more details.
Palermo has all facilities including excellent shopping along the main street. Between the harbour and the
main street is the barrio which can be intimidating. We found an unsecured wifi connection
very easily at a park bench opposite a restaurant on the main street.
