Pasalimani or Zea harbour is a small natural harbour on the east coast of Piraeus.

It is larger than Tourkolimano but nowhere near as large as the Central port of Piraeus and it is mostly used by yachts. Pasalimani is a favourite hangout of strollers, young couples and tourists as there are many cafes, pastry shops and seafood restaurants alongside its coast.

The offices of Olympiakos and the local Yacht club are also situated in Pasalimani.

After liberation, many purists and nationalists have sought to re-impose the harbour's former name - Zea - but without much success as most locals still call it by its more popular name. Pasalimani has been the subject of many a Greek song.
