Porto Heli Guide

The town of Porto Heli, sometimes called Portocheli or Porto Cheli, is located in the south eastern part of Argolis in Greece. The town lies on the bay of the Argolic Gulf, around 6 km to the south of Kranidi and 40 km to the south east of Nafplio. Located around 6 km off the coast of Porto Heli is the island of Spetses. Visitors to the island's port will see many fishing boats and yachts using the harbour, especially during the summer. The town's beaches are mainly small secluded coves although there are two organised beaches. The town is a popular destination for families and is frequently visited by Athenians, many of whom have holiday homes there. The location is convenient for road trips to Ancient Epidaurus, Poros, Ermioni, Mycenae and Nafplion.

The Argolic Gulf is a gulf of the Aegean Sea off the east coast of the Peloponnese, Greece. It is about 50 km long and 30 km wide with its main port, Nafplio, located at its north western end. At the entrance to the gulf is the island Spetses. This gulf and its islands are sometimes combined with the Saronic Gulf and Saronic Islands, with the result called the Argo-Saronic Gulf and the Argo-Saronic Islands.

There are ferry connections from Portocheli to the islands of Spetses, Hydra and Poros, and to Ermioni and Piraeus.


Poros Guide

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.
