Poros Yacht Charters
Explore island Poros on your luxury yacht charter in Greece
The result of two islands merging into one – Sphería and Kalávria, permanently fused together after the eruption of the Méthana volcano in 273 BC – Poros is adorned with vast areas of lush greenery, celestial beaches and a vibrant, cosmopolitan ambiance; evident in its store-lined waterfront, grandiose mansions, elegant cobblestone streets and intimate, but popular restaurants and cafes.
Famous for its geographic treasures, the island of Poros is filled with rolling hills and mountainous terrain, and its coasts serve as a haven for some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, making it the perfect stop on a yacht charter in Greece.
Dotted with history throughout, Poros has Greek mythology and tradition at the core of its charm. In fact, its strategic location made it a significant location during the 1821 Greek Revolution, and in the early 19th century, it was even the site of the first Greek naval base.
Reserve your private charter yacht today, and peer into the heart of traditional Greece as you explore the quaint and luxurious isle of Poros.
Things to Do and See on Poros
Temple of Poseidon: Built around 520 BC, and a representation of typical Doric architecture, today, the Temple of Poseidon is the site of ancient ruins. An icon of Greek mythology, this haunt is believed to be the place where Demosthenes – an Athenian orator pursued by King Philip, of Macedonia – committed suicide by drinking poison, while begging for the temple’s “sanctuary” and protection.
Clock Tower: Situated at the elevated end point of winding, narrow streets, the historic clock tower – built in 1927 – boasts uninhibited, panoramic views of the entire island of Poros below. As the highest point on the island, this tower welcomes travelers to Poros; standing tall with its dignified and fortress-like shape.
Lemon Forest: Appropriately named for its plethora of more than 30,000 lemon and orange trees, Lemon Forest – a verdurous hilltop on the coast of Peloponnese – is just a short boat ride from the island of Poros. Accessible only by boat, this unique landmark offers one of the most stunning views of Poros, and is surrounded by pristine and historic islets: like Boúrtzi, with its Byzantine fortress; Modi, with its Mycenaean shipwreck; and Daskaleió, with its chapel dedicated to the Virgin Mary.
Love Bay: Verdant with towering pine trees, low enough to the ground that their plentiful needles grace the top of the emerald-green waters of the Saronic Gulf, Love Bay is a piece of true paradise. Covered in fine white pebbles, this beach area is the perfect place to go camping or take in Poros’ idyllic horizon views.
