Mikrolimano is the second largest Yacht marina of the big port. The port was protected by the goddess Mounihia Artemis that’s why sometimes it is referred as port of Munihia. Today Mikrolimano it is a popular location, attracting people from all over Attica. It is a beautiful little harbour with fishing boats, small boats and luxury yachts. If you like fish and seafood have lunch or dinner at one of its famous taverns. many Greek films have used this location because of its idyllic atmosphere.
