NEORIO (Settlement) POROS
  Neorio is the Greek word for Shipyard, because of the shipyard that existed in the area during the 18th century. The settlement is situated at the southwestern part of Kalavria, amongst the pine tree forest. It was a favorite resort for the Athenians during this century and many villas were built. Many people of culture passed their summers here, such as the poet George Seferis and the author Henry Miller.
  Today it is a small, elegant and quiet tourist resort, with several tavernas, a supermarket and gift shop around the sandy beach. Watersports and parachuting are available. Near Neorio there is the area of the Love Bay, a sandy cove with crystal waters, where the pine trees hang over the sea and the Russian Naval Station, with ruins of the shipyards.

  The town of Poros rises in layers along the western part of the Sferia rock.
  In front, the main waterfront road is lined with bars, cafes and restaurants. Behind it, the simple, square white and blue-washed houses rise one behind the other, a blend of slanted tile roofs, arched verandas, gaily painted doors and red bougainvilleas, crow-ned on top by the clock towers built in 1927, that has become the symbol of Poros. The labyrinth of cobbled alleys and narrow steps climbing between small houses with vine-shaded courtyards, offer the visitor a pleasant stroll.
  The waterfront cafes provide an excellent way of passing time over a small cup of Greek coffee, watching the activities of the harbour: boats coming and going, yachts mooring at the quay and tourists promenading.
  In the evening, don’t miss the sunset behind the "Sleeping Beauty", the silhouette of a reclining woman, formed against the horizon by the distant range of mountains.
  The view may be enhanced by a glass of ouzo. After sunset, the colourful string of cocktail bars and restaurants becomes the meeting place for the people from all over the world who enjoy the hectic life and charm of the island.
