The anchorages on Delos:
Delos Channel is a narrow, shallow, and vastly reefed channel between Rinia and Delos that surrounds the Nisidhes Remmatio islet. Since this islet is beyond the 500-meter mooring restriction, you can choose to drop anchor here. However, the channel is completely open to the Meltemi and is spread with reefs, which can make things tricky for you.
Delos Channel cannot exactly be termed an anchorage. It’s just a bypass to sail to the nearby Rinia and take cover at Ormos Skhinou, Chapel Bay, or South Bay.
Mooring at Delos Channel
Delos Channel is preferred only for a quick transit to Rinia because of its vast reefs and bareness to the northerlies. We do not recommend anchoring anywhere near the Delos Channel, even if you plan on stopping around the islet.
The meltemi winds are known to blow at force 7 or more in worst cases, which can be an inconvenience. The reefs and the small seas do not help either.
