This is a huge, spacious anchorage with many boats at anchor, but still plenty of room for more. Boats stay on anchor or moorings here, year round.
The town is a bit dusty and a bit run down, apparently a huge improvement since they have planted a few palm trees. Many tavernas line the waterfront.
Port Heli is th site of the ancient city of Halieis
There is an acropolis and due to the rise in sea level, there are many underwater ruins that can be viewed from the surface.
