Perched on Kefalonia's south-east coast is the beautiful little village of Poros. Many of Kefalonia's visitors never make it to this quiet corner of the island, which once used to be a big tourist hub in the early 1980s. These days, larger resorts nearby, such as Skala, attract huge numbers of holiday-makers, allowing Poros to remain a tranquil spot for those looking for a truly chilled-out break.
Poros is a verdant village on the southeast side of the island, surrounded by mount Atros and mount Pahni. It used to be one of the first villages on Kefalonia to welcome organised tourism in the early 80s, but since the late nineties and until present day the resort of Skala has become the main tourist attraction of the area. However, Poros remains a working port which links Kefalonia to mainland Greece and the neighbouring islands
