Poros, Greece

I can’t imagine anyone whose list of dream destinations wouldn’t include one of Greece’s Mediterranean islands. And for those of you who are in the midst of figuring out your life, traveling on a budget or weighing out the cost-benefit of every travel expense while traveling in style, Poros is just the place for you. A popular resort for Athenian travelers’ short getaways, Poros offers a peaceful yet vibrant, accessible yet rich Mediterranean experience. It is located just south of Piraeus, the port city of Attica, Greece and can be easily accessed via a short and sweet hour long ferry ride.

The featured image right below really is my favourite of the island – a bird eye’s view of this Mediterranean gem, growing luxuriantly as you come closer to the edge.. so much sensory pleasure.

See below my snapshots for my recommendations on where to stay and where to eat! 🙂

Where to stay:

Panorama Apartments

The last two pictures above are views of both the front of the apartments and of the balcony view. It’s clean, extremely affordable and you will never get tired of coming back to your balcony to catch a glimpse of the last minutes of daylight. Christian, the owner and his staff are incredibly hospitable hosts and accommodators. He took his time to advise us on where to eat, shop and what to explore. If you stay here, you will also be rewarded with free bike rentals that can be returned at the end of your trip! And really, what a better way to explore this island and its glorious beaches than on two wheels!

Where to eat:

Poseidon Tavern – For fresh seafood that’s been captured by the owner himself, served on your plate and on the nearby island of Hydra.

Colona Poros Fast Food – For the best and cheapest souvlaki, gyros and fresh salads. Enjoy a beautiful view of the docking station while you’re at it!

Beaches:

Askeli Beach – A slightly busier beach right by some local tavernas. Great for family fun and daytime activities. If you’re staying at a hotel, chances are this is the closest beach to you.

Megalo Neorio Beach – For some beautiful green water colour, taverns and some organized water sports.

Hoping you’ll get a chance to visit!

Love,

  • Poros is a very small island with “big” pleasures to offer. In a combination with Aigina and Spetses , which are located very close to Poros, you can plan a great trip to remember. You deserve a Bravo for the photos!!

  • These photos are beautiful! I hope to one day travel there as well.
    How long did you stay for? was it difficult to transition to the time change?

    Reply
    • Thank you! I stayed for about 5 days. It was the perfect amount of time to do everything we wanted to. It wasn’t difficult to transition at all since the island has a really relaxed and layed-back mood to it. Perfect for me 🙂

  • My son went to Corfu Greece when he was in the Navy. He said Greece was one of the nicest places he’s visited . It was very clean and beautiful and the local people were most hospitable and friendly. All of them. He wants to return and take me with him. He recommends Greece highly on his list of places to visit. Your pics are beautiful. 🙂

    • I hope you do get the chance to visit one day. Athens is great too and the metro systems are surprisingly high tech and very clean. There is so much culture, so much to learn. I look forward to going back soon! 🙂 Thank you for your kind words 🙂
