Is a small Greek island in the southern part of the Saronic Gulf, south from Piraeus (Athens) and separated from the Peloponnese by a 200-metre wide sea channel.
The ancient name of Poros was Pogon. Poros consists of two islands: Sferia, the southern part, which is of volcanic origin, where today’s city is located, and Kalaureia, also Kalavria or Calauria (meaning ‘gentle breeze’), the northern and largest part. A bridge connects the two islands over a narrow isthmus.
Poros also includes a part of the mainland, Kyaní Aktí, at the easternmost point of the Peloponnese Peninsula, between the island of Poros and Hydra. Poros has an adequate tourist infrastructure.
