Where to Stay in Poros
In my opinion, after several trips to Poros, you either want to be right in town, or you want to be within easy walking distance of town. Poros is a small enough island though that pretty much anywhere you stay you will find convenient. There are also buses, taxis, and water taxis to the beaches and you can rent a motorbike or a bicycle
since the coast is flat and easy for pedaling. Here are some recommended hotels and information. You can click on the hotel names for more photos, information and instant booking for those who would rather book direct and not use a travel agency. For those who are doing Poros along with other islands I invite you to use my Create-an-itinerary form or to contact Fantasy
Travel for assistance. You can find more hotels at Booking.com's Poros Pages

never want to leave the island.
