This large almost totally enclosed bay is a popular water sports centre, though popular with bareboat charter skippers more for the excellent shelter.
Porto Heli offers copious mooring space, courtesy of the long quay built when the bay was intended to become a NATO base. A sandy beach runs along the north shore in front of a line of hotels and in summer the waters are full of water sports enthusiasts in their various forms.
The wide quay and road in front of the town make the town feel a bit of a sprawl. There are some nice buildings but the place somehow lacks a centre. That said there’s everything here that you’d expect of a small tourist town and though some of the activities afloat will be restricted to the customers of the hotels that provide them, you’ll have no trouble finding something to keep you occupied.
