Notes to sailors
  • All approaches to Tilos are without danger but, with the meltemi there can be very strong gusts and the harbour should be entered with care. 

  • Once inside the harbour, shelter is good, although a slight swell can creep in during strong winds.


  • Instead of opting for fixed anchorages, we recommend using your own anchor. This way, your anchor will be secure, and you can enjoy the beauty of the island.
