Navigator (1)



Location: The anchorage point of Gramvousa is behind the island of Gramvousa at the end of the peninsula of Gramvousa on the northwest side of Crete. The second island north is Agria (Wild) Gramvousa. There is a Venetian castle on the island above the sheer west face of Gramvousa Island and a small cove on the south where there is a wrecked freighter hull.

Facilities: There is a pier on the south side of the island and well-water near the small church. There are no other facilities.

Comments: In the small cove there is a safe anchorage point from NW and NE winds. The quay has bows to mooring if done with care - there are some rocks in the area. In south winds anchor opposite in the bay formed by the small isthmus on the mainland. Care must be taken when entering the area as there are submerged rocks on the west entrance, in front of the fort.
