The green island of Poros receives a great number of visitors every year, arriving either from Piraeus or from the coast of Peloponnese, right opposite the island of Poros in the Saronic Gulf. The natural beauty of this island has been honored by many famous writers and poets. Tourism in Poros is very developed due to the close ferry ride (1 hour) from the Greek capital. Poros tourism has also developed as a sailing destination.
There is no tourist office in the island of Poros, only travel agencies where visitors can collect all the needed information about the places of major interest. There is no tourist police either, except for the police station.
