Poros Guide

Located on the Greek island of Cephalonia, or Kefalonia, part of the Ionian group of islands, is the small town of Poros. The town is made up of three parts. In the port area of the town there are a few bars and tavernas. The port provides connections to Kyllini on the Peloponnese area of mainland Greece and to the island of Zakynthos during the summer months. The second area, away from the port, is the town beach which is comprised of a town square which is lined with tavernas and shops. The third area is Aragia which is separated from the centre of the town by the Vohinas River.

Poros and its surrounding area generally remains fairly uncrowded and is a good place for relaxing on the beach or for walking or hiking. A great attraction to visit, especially to hikers, is the oldest monastery on the island. The walk of around 3 km takes you along the beach in a north westerly direction which you then follow the path up into the mountains of Atros. At the end of the path is the monastery of the Virgin Mary which sits atop a 500 m high hill. Once at the monastery there are fantastic views to be had. The slow pace of the town has managed to retain its Greek atmosphere and it is generally regarded as a fairly down to earth sort of town. This is great for visitors because prices tend to be lower here than elsewhere.

Ermioni Guide

The Greek town of Ermioni is located in the Peloponnese region, and lies across a peninsular and is surrounded by sea on both sides. This gives the town the feeling of an island town whilst having all of the benefits of being located on the Greek mainland. The town has been inhabited since at least the time of Homer but during the Classic era it was well known for its shipbuilding and for the production of porphyra, a important red dye which was used for colouring the uniforms of many armies including that of Alexander the Great.

Today the town is a major tourist destination and small port. The old town was built on a hillside and has lovely views of the surrounding nearby islands and fertile agricultural land where pomegranates, citrus fruits and olives are grown. The bay that sits below the town is the location of the town's natural harbour where fishermen can often be observed cleaning their nets and where visitors will find a number of shops and cafes. Mandraki, to the south, offers a good selection of quay side restaurants, bars and traditional Tavernas with their octopuses hanging outside to dry in the sun.
