    The old venetian marina is nice but is always full with local boats and fishing boats.
    There is however, room for several boats in 6 meters on the town quay at the entrance to the venetian marina. Mooring rings are missing and help is required to tie up. Electricity and water available from the port police station opposite the quay.
    Only a few minutes walk to the city and taverna’s shops etc.
    Irakion is a nice city to visit.
    Beware of the Seajet ferry that docks around 19.00 each day, the swell is dreadful as it docks, with masts hitting off each other.
