Poros is an attractive coastal town located on the southeast coast of Kefalonia, one of the Ionian Islands of Greece. Situated at the crossing point where the Vohinas river enters the sea, the name ‘Poros’ actually means ‘ford’ or ‘crossing’ in Greek.
As a port town, Poros links Kefalonia with mainland Greece with daily ferry services. Local fishing boats also use the harbour to supply the area with fresh fish. Poros used to be no more than a small cluster of fishermen’s huts, until the 1953 earthquake destroyed many of the surrounding villages and a new town was built.
Nowadays, Poros is built around a marvellous landscape of lush green forests and has a population of around 1100 inhabitants. The combination of dense vegetation and crystal blue water makes Poros one of the most perfect summer holiday destinations. With a slow pace of life and a traditional Greek atmosphere, Poros is great for those who seek to escape the package tours and find something genuinely Greek.
