Poros Island

Greece connoisseurs swarm to this most beautiful and fascinating island, which was exempted so far from the mass tourism. Poros, meaning passage consists of two volcanic islands, Sferia, a small rocky island and Kalavria, a larger and more of a lush green island, offering a nice coastline. A bridge connects the two islands. The climate is mostly dry during the summer, with cool sea breezes blowing across these little paradise islands. Here you will find all the beaches and most of the hotels in Poros.

The clock tower is the first thing you see when you approach Poros. There are many steps to climb in order to reach the tower but it's well worth the effort. When you are at the top you will experience a breathtaking view. The spire of the Church of St. George will stand out above the orange tiled roofs.

Make an interesting visit to the ruins of Poseidon’s Sanctuary, the Church of Aghii Anargyri and the Zoodochos Pigis ("Life-giving Source") Monastery, amid towering cypress trees. Outside the monastery is a little café called “Arkontariki", (reception of the Monastery). Two sisters who are famous all over Poros for their homemade sweets, which are made with only organic ingredients, run it. There are also many old, interesting buildings in Poros, along with an archaeological museum. Fisherman's Church sits at the water's edge outside of town with a steep rock formation serving as a backdrop. There are about another 150 chapels just like it on the island.

Take a walk through the fascinating whitewashed village and the quaint harbor, which is bustling with colorful fishing boats and yachts from around the world. Explore a labyrinth of narrow cobblestone streets behind the harbor square and visit the markets and shops. Immerse yourself in the culture of this area, rich in ancient archaeological sites. Relax with a good book in your chaise lounge by the sea or walk through a lemon tree grove. Drink in the colorful explosion of bougainvillea growing up the side of a building in Lemondosos.

Poros even offers an open-air cinema right in the center of town where you can watch some of the most popular movies of the year.

Poros has both sand and pebble beaches. You will notice that they are very calm, since they are situated in little sheltered bays. There are courses given at two water sports schools, one on Askeli beach and the other on Neorion Beach. Enjoy water-skiing, sailing, windsurfing and parasailing, as well as many other activities.

The ravine of Poros is an 80-meter deep precipice with steep slopes where you will see hollows in the rocks. The Vohinas River springs up from a 'bottomless' lake. It is a dry bed river in the summer months but in winter it flows through Poros.

At night, you can stroll along the lively waterfront or dance all night long. There you will find a variety of cafes and taverns offering a wide choice of Greek and international dishes and plenty of good wine. Walk the streets of Socrates' and his students, whisper in the theatre at Epidauros, and revel in the land where civilization, as we understand it, commenced.

So come to Poros and make the kind of memories that will last a lifetime. Your paradise vacation awaits you today.
