The anchorages on Tinos:
Ormos Panormou is a small natural harbour found on the NE coast of the island and one of the most picturesque anchorages on the island of Tinos. Visitors love this port for its laid back vibe and relaxing atmosphere. The port was once used for the transport of marble that made artists and craftsmen famous all over Greece. Not well connected to the rest of the island except the village of Pyrgos. You may also hike to the village for a more adventurous exploration that takes about 40 min each way. A great option if you wish to discover the eastern coast of the island and have adequate provisions.
While relatively well sheltered, caution is required due to only moderate holding near the cove of Agia Thalassa. A beacon on the N side marks a reef between Agia Thalassa and the pier. The inner quay has a depth of only 1.5-2m and tends to be crowded with locals’ fishing boats but the E side offers 4-5m of water. Best to anchor in the centre of the bay and reach the coast with tender. Swell entering the bay can be uncomfortable.
Ormos Panormou offers limited provisions for yacht charters and is best used during the high season when tavernas and shops in the area are in operation. Water is available from the quay; a long hose is required. You can grab a taxi to the village of Pyrgos that is located a 5-min drive away to experience the unique architecture and visit the museum of Yannoulis Halepas. Various fish tavernas are located near the harbour.
Types of Boats that are in the Marina
