Overview

Ormos Kanala is perhaps the best-kept secret on the island of Kithnos. This lovely small village tucked in the Panagia Kanala bay is picturesque and ends in graceful pine trees. These pine trees are the only ones found on the whole of Kithnos Island.

This village boasts an impressive view of the ocean. It is quaint and beautifully painted in the classic white and blues of Greece. It’s stone laid walkway provides an idyllic location, perfect for pictures and long walks.  The Cycladic architecture of the village is refreshing from the bustle and hustle of day-to-day activities.

Navigation

Ormos Kanala is located approximately 9 km to the north of Merikhas. One can decide to take the ferry from Merikhas to Kolona or take a short walk. The hike from Merikhas takes about 30 minutes. An absolute pleasure for those who love nature walks. To reach Kanala beach, you start your walk on the north of the port of Merichas, passing Apokrousis beach and continuing to the left. Ormos Kanala is open to the south and the east.  Boats need to take caution due to the reef that lies at the entrance of the bay.

Where to Anchor

The bay is about 3 to 10 meters. The bottom of the beach is sandy and packed with seaweed. Anchor quality is good to average. The North and South of the anchorage is mainly protected from tidal winds but expect a few swells from the west and winds from the Western and Eastern part of the anchorage.
