A fantastic beach, has green-blue waters, with pines hanging above the shore. The combination of pines and the sea is enchanting. It has sunbeds and a small cafe but you are allowed to sit in the free area of the beach without any charge. You should definitely visit it relatively early because it is small and is visited by a lot of people.

2. Clock Tower

From the port to the clock you have to climb several steps, go through alleys, and the like. But once you get on the clock it will compensate you. The view is so magnificent especially if you go at sunset. Also an ideal place for impressive photos.

3. Askeli Beach

The port of Poros is one of the cleanest ports. The port, the city, the marina all in a single line that you can walk at most in an hour and see everything. The walk here is picturesque, especially at night. It has souvenir shops, cafes, and taverns. From there you can go to Galatas either by boat or by ferry.

7. Temple of Poseidon

An archeological site well enough preserved with signs so that the visitor can understand what the temple was originally like. The site itself, having served as a stone quarry after its abandonment, like many ancient sites, has little in elevation and it takes imagination.

8. Archaeological Museum of Poros

In this small museum, it’s divided into two large rooms, one on the ground floor and the other on the upper floor, there are inscriptions, sculptures, tools, and funeral offerings. Here, there is a collection of finds not only from Poros but also from nearby islands and cities.

9. Russian Bay
