Yerakas: The quayside and village

This delightful fishing village is little more than a row of houses (and a couple of restaurants) lining the quayside. Other than visiting sailors, Yerakas sees few visitors, and indeed quite a few yachtsmen manage to sail past the well concealed entrance!

Yerakas is set in a long inlet, described by some as a fjord (they’ve evidently not seen a real fjord), providing good shelter.

Other than the village itself, the only notable point of interest is the ruins of the Mycenaean castle on the top of the headland and walkable from the  village. The ruins are not that remarkable but it’s worth getting up there for the view.
