Ormos Pisa is an anchorage in Kea.

Kea is a charter location in Cyclades, a yacht charter area in Greece.

The anchorages on Kea:

Overview

What makes Ormos Pissa (Pisses) such a magical spot to anchor? Well, it’s not only the clear waters, the secluded location, and the impressive ancient ruins which overlook the bay. It’s also that there are some great hiking trails to follow and some local tavernas where you’ll be able to relax in the shade and enjoy mouth-watering local specialties.

Navigation

Ormos Pisa (Pisses) is a small bay located approximately 1.5km north of Ak.Makropoundha. Open to the south and west, it provides some shelter from the Meltemi, but be aware that on occasion the swells can be troublesome.  Anchor in 4m-8m near the top of the bay – the bottom is sandy.

There’s also a cove north of the bay – which looks inviting. Even as you get close to the shore, though, it’s very deep.

Onshore, there are several local tavernas, but no other services to speak of.

General Information

Ormos Pisa is a perfect choice when you’re looking for a fairly tranquil location for a spot of sunbathing and perhaps some snorkelling.

The rugged landscape also makes it a great base for hikers, with deserted trails which provide a glimpse into the unspoiled terrain of the island. You’ll fall in love with the scents of the wild herbs as you walk, with the only noise being the hypnotic chirping of the cicadas in the heat of the day.

Then, after some enjoyable exertion, take your time to settle down in the tavern and enjoy a delicious local lunch, and maybe a glass or two of local wine or ouzo.

Beaches

Pisses Beach

11km southwest of Ioulida. Sunbeds and umbrellas are available for hire on part of the beach. It’s uncrowded except during the summer peak and framed with stunning woodlands. Family-friendly, it’s great for swimming and snorkelling most of the year. Expect the sea to get rougher during the Meltemi, though – so it’s ideal for surfers during the hottest summer months.

Kastelakia Beach

12km southwest of Ioulida. An idyllic spot to swim and sunbathe, this narrow sand and pebble beach are lapped by crystal clear water. Take plenty of fresh water and food with you as there are no facilities in this secluded location

Places of Interest

Ancient Piessa

The ruins of ancient Poiessa or Piessa, with the remains of the temple of Apollo, are still visible. On Pisses beach there are even still traces of another ancient city that used to sit on top of a mountain at the edge of the valley.

The Lion of Kea

The Lion of Kea also known as the Pussycat! An easy 20 minutes walk to the east of Chora, this unique ancient lion’s head, carved into the rock by an Ionian sculptor is well worth a visit.

The Archaeological Museum of Kea

This museum displays treasures and artifacts from the island’s four ancient cities of the Cycladic period. There are two collections: the prehistoric and the historic. Scenes from the fight of the Amazons from the temple of Athena are not to be missed.
