Information about Poros:
Poros is a little island just an hour away from Athens. It is a popular destination for day trips and weekend getaways from the capital of Greece. Because of its proximity to Athens, its small size and its beautiful natural landscape, Poros gets pretty busy during summer, without losing its unspoiled charm.
The island’s center of activities is Poros Town, the main village of Poros. The first thing you’ll notice as the boat enters the port is the elegant Neoclassical houses and the Clock Tower, on a hill above the port, which offers a great view over the region. The waterfront of Poros Town is the busiest of all spots. It is lined by private yachts, fishing boats, seaside cafeterias, and small gift shops. Buses depart from Poros Port to many beautiful beaches and resorts around Poros.
Although beaches on Poros are not large, they have crystal water and lovely ambiance. Most of them are organized with umbrellas, sunbeds, beach bars, and some sports centers. The most popular beach is Askeli, which has many tourist facilities. The road from Askeli leads to the Monastery of Zoodochos Pigi, the main religious center of the island, which has historical significance and is surrounded by a beautiful natural landscape. Other popular beaches on Poros are Megalo Neorio, Kanali, and the Love Bay, a picturesque cove surrounded by pine trees.
