Poros, Askeli

«I don’t know which affected me more deeply, the story of the lemon groves just opposite us, or the sight of Poros itself, when suddenly I realized that we were sailing through the streets. If there is one dream which I like above all others, it is that of sailing on land. Coming into Poros gives the illusion of the deep dream»                                                                   The Colossus of Maroussi, by Henry Miller.

No description can express better the feeling one gets when entering the 200m. narrow passage which has given its name to the island (Poros means passage), facing the green hills and mountains of the mainland on one side, filled with pine, olive, orange and lemon trees, and the picteresque traditional houses, which cover the hill all the way up from the harbor, on the other. The impressive clock tower which was built in 1927, dominates Poros town and is aknowledged as the symbol of the island.
Poros’ present form is a result of an eruption of the nearby volcano of Methana, which took place in 273b.c. and is devided in 2 parts by a narrow canal, the volcanic islet of Sferia where Poros town spreads over the hillside, and the much bigger in size Calavria covered in pine trees, where Askeli is located.

Askeli is one of the most beautiful beaches of the island, sandy with some pebbles. During the summer months a beach bar is operating with sunbeds and umbrellas. The sea sports fans will not be disappointed, as a center for sea sport activities, like water-ski, banana, rings, parasailing, windsurf sailing, kayaking etc. is also operating in the area. Along the beach, there are several cafe-bars and restaurants, offering entertainment and a great variety of delicious dishes, while on specific nights Greek evenings with traditional greek music and dances are held.
