Karavostasi (Καραβοστάσι – ship port) is the port of the Folegandros island and its only a somewhat secure anchorage.
While you can anchor off, it is not safe with a strong meltemi. It is best to go stern-to the quay, where there is space for around eight yachts on the outside. The bottom is sand and rock and does not always hold. Make sure that your anchor is secure before leaving your boat to go to Chora.
With Southerlies, it is best to anchor off or go stern-to inside the mole.
Warning: Watch out for the Dhio Adelphia rocks and for a rock just above the water about 50 m E of the mole.
Caution: With a strong meltemi there is a very uncomfortable swell.
Danger: The approach to Karavostasi, the only harbor in the island, can be dangerous because there are several reefs and strong gusts during a meltemi. Night approaches are not recommended.
