Two chairs and a table on the top terrace and removable shade in the form of a light weight clip up sun screen.

3 minute walk to the harbour and a 10 minute walk to the nearest beach. Other beaches around the island can be accessed by using the local buses which run regularly or by scooter or taxi, all of which are inexpensive. Lunch is served under the trees in summer on Neorio beach and there is a small cafe on Monestraki beach. Water sports are available on some of the beaches.

How to get there
Poros is 1 hour from Pireaus port by hydrofoil and 2 1/2 hours by ferry; take a taxi or the express bus from the airport. This takes about an hour. By car, it takes 2 1/2 hours and rental cars are available at the airport. It is a beautiful drive through the mountains along the coast and a short 10 minute local car ferry ride across to the island. A car is not essential on the island as the public transport is good and everything is accessible by walking, using a scooter or a pedal bike.

Poros town`s harbour is full of sailing and motor yachts. There is a boat show in May and an around-the-island yacht race in October. Poseidon`s temple and the Museum of Archaeological Artifacts are worth a visit. Many of the antiquities of the Peloponnese are easily accessible by car from Galatas, the town on the mainland, opposite Poros. Epidavrous, Mycene and the architecturally interesting town of Nafplion are all 1 to 1.5 hours by car. Concerts are held at Epidavrous in the summer.

Further Details
Just below the house on the waterfront, about 3 minutes walk, there is a small supermarket and a good butcher. Both carry fresh bread daily. Most of the other shops and the banks are along the waterfront going left from below the house. Scattered among them are the many cafes and tavernas that are so important to Greece life. These are the places to people and boat watch.

Turning right from below the house takes you across the small canal that joins the two islands and onto the larger main island. This is where the beaches, the Temple of Poseidon and the pine forests are located.
