a beautiful green island, laying at the southwest of the Saronic Gulf and
opposite to Argolid in Peloponnese. Poros consists of two smaller islands,
connected by a bridge, Sferia, a small rocky island and Kalavria, a larger and
lusher island with green hills and beautiful coastlines. Its main town and port
of the island is built in amphitheatre form on the slopes of a hill. Along the
port there are a lot of cafeterias, restaurants, tourist shops and many bars
with foreign or Greek music. At the center of the town is worth visiting the
Archaeological museum and the islands trademark the clock-tower. Do
visit the famous lemon forest which stands opposite on the coast of the
Peloponnese and the temple of Poseidon.
Temple of Poseidon
It was built in Doric style around the 6th century. Systematic excavations
started by the Swedish archaeologist S.Wide and L.Kjellberg. Today a few remains
of the temple are left.
The Lemon Forest
A big area full of Lemon trees, there is said to be over 30.000 lemon trees in
the forest, with lots of waters and water mills. A walk through ends up at a
traditional Greek tavern.
The first thing that you see as you approach Poros from Piraeus. It is nice but
difficult to climb up to the tower, but once you have reached the top you can
enjoy the beautiful view over the neighborhood.
Kanali: A beautiful sandy beach with shallow waters, very good for
families who have children. It has very good fish taverns by the sea with a
wonderful view to the open sea. Askeli: The widest beach on the island.
It is an organized beach with water sports, shops, restaurants and taverns and
interesting nightlife. Monastery: A quiet beach with clear waters and
traditional Greek taverns. Neorion bay: A lovely sandy, organized beach
where the pine trees reach the sea. Water sports facilities and restaurants are
available. Love bay: A sandy beach outside and
rocky inside. Here you can enjoy the green from the pine trees and the
clear blue waters.
