Poros consists of two islands connected by a bridge: Sferia, the southern part, where Poros Town is located, and Kalavria the northern and largest part. Poros was the site of the first naval base in modern Greece, established in 1827 during the Greek War of Independence, and consequently it has an illustrious history of sailing and boat building.
Poros Town has a mixture of traditional and neo-classical buildings; the bell tower is its most striking landmark.
Poros sits between Aegina and Hydra and hugs the coastline of the Eastern Peloponnese - you can sail across to the mainland in just five minutes! A day trip to the Argolis region - Epidavros, Mycenae and Nafplion - is highly recommended.
Beaches are delightful for those looking for relaxation & there is plenty to see for the more active, including a visit to the Monastery of Zoodochos Pigi which enjoys an exceptional location on pine-forested slopes.
