This area is best known for the fact that Byron died here.

There is a long canal lined with fishing houses on stilts, from the gulf up to the harbour. Somewhat reminiscent of the Mississippi delta.

The bussling town which is loaded with young people (perhaps students) is a 20 minute walk inland from the harbour.

A well protected harbour and I don't think we had to pay anything. We did visit the Port Authority in the harbour on our first visit.

There is a new marina development not shown on the satellite image, but I docked on the harbour wall in the NW corner.
