Finikas is a small port in a bay on the south west coast of Syros and offers shelter from the Meltemi. We planned to spend the weekend there before moving on to Rinia, Delos and Mykonos.
Although there is a town quay, with memories of Merikha still fresh in our memories, we prefered to anchor and watch the fun. It also transpired that to berth there would cost €23 per night, including water and power. Not a fortune but it is a light meal with wine at a taverna, and now the generator and water maker are fully operational we are self sufficient in water and electricity as long as we have diesel.
There is not really much in Finikas but it is a very pleasant spot to spend a weekend. It is small with a lot of hotels and holiday villas, has a nice beach, a few tavernas and a supermarket (with lettuce). There is a small chandlers where I managed to find two bits I needed and a bakery for a cheese pie!
We went ashore in the tender, had a walk around, took some photos then sat in a taverna, with it’s own quay, and used their WiFi over a glass of wine. First thing Monday morning we visited the supermarket then headed for Rinia, the island close by Delos.
