Information about Poros

A small island only an hour ferry ride from Athens, Poros is a popular destination for day-trippers and weekend excursions from the capital of Greece. Due to its proximity to Athens, the small size and the beautiful nature, Poros gets pretty popular in summer, without losing its traditional character.

Most activities on the island concentrate in Poros Town, the only real village that has all facilities. The first things to notice as the boat enters the port are the elegant Neoclassical houses and the Clock Tower, on the highest hill of the town offering great view to the region. The waterfront is the busiest spot, lined by private yachts, fishing boats, portside cafeterias and small gift shops. This is where the buses depart from and go around the island, to the beautiful beaches and resorts of Poros.

Although beaches on Poros are not large, they have crystal water and lovely ambience. Most of them are organized with umbrellas, sun beds, beach bars and some sports centres. The most popular beach is Askeli, where most tourist facilities are found. The road from Askeli leads to the Monastery of Zoodochos Pigi, the main religious centre of the island with historical importance and lush green environment. Other popular beaches include Megalo Neorio, Kanali and the Love Bay, a picturesque cove surrounded by pine trees.

It was a fine day and a relaxing tour that one-day trip to Poros. A small van picked us up from our hotel and then we headed to the port of Piraeus. The driver left us just outside the hydrofoil, about 20 min before it leaves. He also gave us the tickets. Hydrofoil left on time and the trip was really small, about 1 hour.

Poros Town was very picturesque but busy. Of course, it was high season (mid August). I loved the gift shops and the stairs in the town and the small cafeterias at the port, although the motorbikes and the taxis were very noisy and annoying. We took the bus to Askeli, as we were told that this was the most organized beach on the island. In fact, this was a very long beach with clean water and many sports. We tried jet ski and loved it, it was our first time! Had a lovely meal in a tavern with great view to the town and the green mountain above.

The hydrofoil back to Piraeus was on time and the van came 10 min after our arrival to get us back to the hotels. Overall, very punctual trip and no complain at all.
