Poros is a verdant village on the southeast side of the island, surrounded by mount Atros and mount Pahni. 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.
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.
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.
