As you approach Ermoupolis, you see a twin village, a cathedral, and a lighthouse on Nisís Gáïdharos. 

Be careful while you approach Ifalos Karfomeni shoal water and reef on the harbour’s SW side. The yacht should be close to the N breakwater’s end as there is good depth. This way the reef and bunkering station can be avoided. 

In case of large ferries approaching the island, one has to take special care as they churn in and out of the harbour. The SE winds can be dangerous and uncomfortable for small yachts.
