Flying Visit to Porto Kheli – 16th to 17th June 2017

022 - 2017 - Porto Kheli - 00We sailed the 13 miles to Baltiza Creek on Spétsai, arriving mid-morning but to our disappointment the mooring was not really “an oasis” as the book described. The only real option was to long-line onto the pavement with an unattractive road behind it. We were not impressed so moved on, checking out a few more anchorages before heading for the town quay of Porto Kheli.022 - 2017 - Porto Kheli - 01Porto Kheli is a large circular landlocked bay with a narrow channel to access it. It is described as a tailor-made spot for watersports and as such a number of large hotels have been built along the beach frontage around the bay. The quay is non-descript with the main ferry road behind you and then a few tavernas and bars beyond the road. We took Hudson for a walk to explore the area, but neither of us were impressed and with the constant slop slop on the stern of the boat we decided to move on promptly tomorrow morning. This is not our kind of town, the only positive thing was they have a great AB Supermarket for re-stocking the boat, and the road out of town is flat, so we managed a run before heading out to Navplion at the head of the Gulf.

NOTE:  Our pictures of Porto Khili are mostly boats, there wasn’t really any other features worth photographing!!
