I think it's a bit difficult to describe this as a port. It's at the end of a long pier. About 500 meters. It's right in the center. You can't miss it. For the Greek islands it's one of the best because there is plenty of space for people and the ferries. The taxis you can find at the end of the pier and it's in the chora (tha main town) so you can normally just walk to your hotel or airbnb if you are staying in the town.
There are no shops or anything (and I think no toilets?! but maybe there are public ones, I don't remember). But if you have to wait there are many cafes and bars near by.
