Port Longos is a small harbour and anchorage on the east coast of Paxos between Lakka and Gaios. Formerly the harbour served the needs of a soap factory producing olive oil soap, but nowadays it survives on fishing and tourism. There is a small mole on the South side that 6 boats can anchor moor to facing North and East. New mooring rings have been installed and there is a water / electricity bollard. Wash can come in from passing boats so anticipate some pitching. Otherwise, anchor and take a line ashore on the N side of the bay. One can free anchor with care in the middle of the harbour, avoiding the numerous mooring buoys. Depths here are little more than 3.0 – 4.0 metres and the holding is good in sand and weed. One can also anchor a bit further out in 10 metres with more swing room. However, the harbour does not offer particularly good shelter in the prevailing NW winds and it can get very uncomfortable in such conditions. The village is most attractive, with good tavernas and cafes around the harbour and well worth a visit if the weather is settled.
Danger: Be aware of the dangerous rock Ifalos Paxoi ESE of Longos. The GPS chart error on CMaps is quite large. You will be shown 125 metres south and 75 metres west of your actual position.
