Explore Poros

Southwest of the saronic Gulf, almost at a swimming distance from Peloponnese, lies the picturesque island of Poros. A favourite amongst the Greeks for a weekend escape, the island is the very image of romance. The classic white and blue of the Aegean is not the style featured in Poros. 

Here you will find pastel hued houses gathered on top of a volcanic hilltop and a beautifully verdant landscape, full of pine trees and charming little villages; the very image of a picture-perfect holiday destination. 

Poros is meant for relaxation, you will not find much sightseeing to do here. But the few absolute musts on the island are truly unmissable. Poros actually consists of two smaller islands, interconnected by a narrow strip of land.


What can you do in Poros?

Romantic to the core, Poros is brim with lovely corners and charming alleyways. Stroll across the seafront boulevard gazing at the fishing boats floating lazily or immerge in the inner town amidst charming neoclassical, pastel hued houses with terracotta tiled rooftops. Soothing for the senses, Poros is the epitome of elegance.

Monastiri beach

Poros offers a broad variety of beautiful beaches such as the marvellous Monastiri beach, developing at the foot of the Zoodochos Pigis monastery and the golden-sanded Russian beach. Our personal favorite remains the love bay. Covered in pine trees that reach all the way down to the water, this splendid bay is true to its name, it’s the very image of romance. As for the waters, you haven’t seen a colour such as this. The blue and green sea meets the sandy beach adorned with fine white pebbles. Trust us, you will fall in love.
