Poros Guide

The small Greek island of Poros is located in the southern part of the Saronic Gulf and is made up of two islands. Spharia is the southern island and Kalaureia is the northern and larger of the two islands. Spanning the narrow strait that separates the two islands is a bridge. The island is roughly 60 km to the south of Piraeus and is only 200 m from the Peloponnese on the Greek mainland. There are a few popular tourist attractions on the island including several chapels and churches located around the island with the most interesting being the Monastery of Zoodochos Pigi and the Metropolitan Temple of Saint George. The 18th century Monastery of Zoodochos Pigi is located around 4 km from Poros Town and sits in an area surrounded by pine and plane trees. The monastery is where visitors will find the graves of the famous Greek captains Tobazis, N. Apostolis and An. Miaoulis.

The island is connected to the port of Piraeus by ferry and catamaran with a crossing time of around 2 hours and 30 minutes by ferry, and 1 hour and 20 minutes by catamaran. The island is also connected to Galatas on the Greek mainland. Ferries tend to depart every 30 minutes and the trip takes 5 minutes.

Porto Heli Guide

Located on the eastern side of Peloponnese in Greece, Porto Heli is a small seaside town with a large port that lies on the Argolic Gulf. Visitors to the town will often see small fishing boats and yachts moored in the port, especially during the summer, which gives the town a charming, cosmopolitan, feel about it. For beach lovers there are a couple of organised beaches in the town but most beaches tend to be small secluded coves which provide the added benefit of being more relaxing than their organised counterparts. Many Athenians have holiday homes in the town which is a popular destination with families and is convenient for trips to Ancient Epidaurus, Poros, Ermioni, Mycenae and Nafplion.

The Argolic Gulf is a gulf of the Aegean Sea off the east coast of the Peloponnese in Greece. It is about 50 km long and 30 km wide with its main port, Nafplio, located at its north western end and at the entrance to the gulf is the island Spetses. The gulf and its islands are sometimes combined with the Saronic Gulf and Saronic Islands, with the result called the Argo-Saronic Gulf and the Argo-Saronic Islands.
