We’ve been twice to Petriti and it always makes for a beautiful sunset with a red-orange glow sweeping across the bay and over the coastline of the mainland. Fishing boats leave the port around 8pm and return early in the morning – always followed by a swarm of seagulls and their little 'pilot' vehicle. The water is clear once the mud settles after setting the anchor it’s warm and swimming is nice.
Petriti is a small town and it doesn’t take long to walk around. Well kept houses and green trees/grass and flowers complete the picture.
When we anchored here the first time early May, we were about 5 boats in the bay. In July we were 40 anchored plus the town quay/fishing port was full.
Some evenings seem to have Greek Dancing/music night and/or karaoke…. We decided to listen rather than join while enjoying Butter Chicken for dinner - karaoke that night seemed to have been Indian themed. Not judging whether it was good or bad ,just saying that it was loud.
