The beautiful village of Poros,located 45 km from the capital city of Argostoli, is a verdant village on the southeast side of the island.A taxi takes 45 minutes drive to get there and it used to be one of the first villages on Kefalonia to welcome organised tourism in the early 80s, but since the late nineties and until present day the resort of Skala has become the main tourist attraction of the area. However, Poros remains a working port which links Kefalonia to mainland Greece and the neighbouring islands.
Its attractive combination of sea and mountain and the good fishing to be had in its waters won it a loyal following of regular visitors from the earliest years of tourist development on the island.If you would like to avoid package holidays and experience a more genuine Greek lifestyle, Poros is the best place on Kefalonia for independent travellers.The long beach that lays in front of the village, is an organised beach, close to tavernas and cafes, ideal for those seeking relaxation.
Further to the north of the village lays the beach of Aragia or Ragia, sandy with a few white stones contrasting the green colour of the crystal clear waters, is as well organised with sunbeds and umbrellas, enjoys the sun all day, so it is ideal for an early morning swim.
Poros port is also preferable by many visiting yachts whose owners are seeking some privacy and a safe port to moor. All the isolated beaches of the area which are accessible only by boat, like for instance Koutsoupia beach, can be reached from Poros either by private yachts or by rented boats and organised tours. The islands of Ithaca and Zakynthos are also in a short distance and therefore if you are into island-hopping, Poros is your starting point.
