Nautical Information

History: The town of Méthana is well known since antiquity because of its therapeutic springs (rheumatism, arthritis, etc.) which together with the excellent dry sea climate help contribute to complete the treatment. The springs were created in the mid 3rd century BC, after the explosion of the volcano which is located on the NW side of the peninsula. The ancient geographer Strávon writes that there were flames coming out of the crater for days and the surrounding area was unapproachable due to the high temperature and the sulphuric fumes. For an area of 1000m, the sea was boiling and silts were created due to huge rocks falling into the sea…

Shelter: From all winds in the marina. The harbor is affected by the N and NE winds.

Mooring: Good holding. The marina is usually full of yachts, however the locals are very helpful and they will find a solution for you.
