POROS (Port) GREECE - Greek Travel Pages



  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.
