Generally about Poros

The island of Poros is located on the southeastern edge of the Saronic Gulf near the Peloponnese, it covers an area of 23 sq. km. and consists of two smaller islands, Sferia (capital - port) and Kalavria, which are connected by a small canal. The population of the municipality according to the 2011 census amounts to 3.993 inhabitants and its area is approximately 49 sq. km., as its territory, apart from the island of Poros, includes a part of 26 sq. km. in the Peloponnese, from the end of the city of Galata to the coast opposite the island of Hydra. The enclosed port between the island of Poros and the mountains of Troizinia gives the place a peaceful, calm tone, as George Seferis said, the poet who wrote 'Kichli', one of the most important poems in modern Greek literature, at Villa Galini in Poros. This port is the largest and safest port in the Saronic Gulf and one of the largest and safest natural ports throughout Greece, with a huge capacity of passing vessels and arrivals exceeding 10.000 per year.
