Corinth or Kórinthos is a large city on the SE of the Gulf of Corinth. While it has a large commercial harbour, its optimistically named Corinth Yacht Harbour has little to offer a cruising yacht and space is almost non-existent inside. If you are prepared to put up with mooring alongside just east of the commercial harbour, Corinth is a good place to leave the yacht while visiting the many interesting archeological sites within a few hours drive. There are berths alongside the wall for about 4 boats. The most westerly has depths of 4 metres, 20 metres along 2.6 metres, then shallower as you go east.
If you must try for a place in the yacht harbour, note that the only secure berths are alongside the end of two T pontoons to starboard once inside the harbour. The further one seems to be permanently occupied by a local boat and, if the nearer one is taken, you either have to raft up on it or go to the commercial harbour. If you are tempted to try going alongside the jetty that encloses the tiny fishing boat harbour, note that the depths here are less than 2.0 metres and that there are some fender-bursting projections along the wall – not a nice place to leave a yacht.
While the area around the commercial harbour is run down, the plazas immediately South of the Marina are surprisingly vibrant at night attracting many hundreds of happy people.
Danger: With strong NE winds entering and leaving the commercial harbor can be dangerous.
