The picturesque natural harbor of Schoinoussa in Mersini is considered the safest nautical refuge in this part of the Cyclades. Because it is difficult to moor large vessels in this harbor, construction of a new port has begun in the bay of Livadi, where archaeological findings have been excavated. The 1,100 meter road from the harbor to Chora and the road that ends at Messaria are the only paved roads on the island. Mersini is also connected to Chora with a beautiful, freshly paved 600 meter cobblestone path that is worth the walk. You will find good, beautifully tended fish restaurants as well as some accommodations in Mersini.
