Poros is lush and green and one of the three ports of the island with daily connections to Kylini and the Greek mainland. It has an attractive and compact centre with shops , bars and tavernas. After the earthquake of 1953 which destroyed the few fishermen's
houses, it was rebuilt at the foot of the mountains Pahni and Atros. The sea with its clear and transparent waters offers a spectacular sight with a variety of colours. The area is renowned as a fishing place, while its caves are a shelter for the seal Monachus-Monachus
and the Loggerhead turtle Caretta- Caretta.
