Porto Heli Greece is built around a picturesque natural harbor in the prefecture of Argolida, Peloponnese. This harbor is very safe and usually has enough space if you have a boat to moor. Porto Heli attracts many tourists every summer, thanks to its natural beauty, its facilities and the sightseeing of the area. There are some interesting sites to visit near the harbor in the daytime and it is also possible to rent a mountain bike in order to explore the area.
There are motorbike rentals and car rentals which can be useful if you want to explore the surroundings, such as the nearby town of Kranidi, still untouched by tourism. In fact, Porto Heli is near many important places in Argolida, such as Ermioni, Epidauros, Nafplion, and Mycenae.
This town has also some nice beaches, like Hinitsa, Costa, Ververoda, and Maistraki. Some of them have umbrellas and fun activities, such as water skiing, windsurfing, and sailing. In particular, a waterskiing competition takes place every summer in Ververoda Lake.
There is also a good variety of cafes, bars, restaurants, and nightclubs. In some of them, bands and singers perform live and owners throw parties. The lively waterfront of this city also offers lots of activities, such as book fairs, shadow puppet theatres, fun fairs for the kids and concerts in the summer.
People are kind and communication with them is easy, as in all Greece, even if you don't speak Greek. Hand gestures have always been helpful. Gift shops are found all over the town and the waterfront to buy souvenirs. Porto Heli is also close to Peloponnese islands and frequent hydrofoils to Spetses and Hydra leave from its port.
