Poros, despite its small expanse, has many beaches, almost all of them along the southern and overgrown coastline of the island.
Most beaches are close to the town of Poros and one can get there by car, bus, bicycle, or by foot, but also by small boats from the port.
After the small bridge, on the left and west, the coastal road passes Perlia and meets successively the Mikro Neorio, the Megalo Neorio, the love's bay and the Russian naval bay, very beautiful beaches where the pine trees reach the sea.
On the right of the small bridge there is the most close beach of the town of Poros. It is a sandy and organised beach with the name Kanali.
After the small bridge, on the right, the coastal road continues towards the east and meets first Askeli and then Monastiri, two picturesque and clean beaches with amazing view.
After Askeli and before the Hotel Sirene Blue Resort, the coastal road goes to the Temple of Poseidon. After the Temple the road descends and lead us to a close picturesque cove where the Vagionia beach is.
Vagionia a beautiful and quiet beach with sand and pebbles situated in the northern part of the island, ideal for relaxing holidays and all kinds of fishing, especially snorkeling. The beach is very clean and is located in the bay of Vagionia, facing the open sea and is opposite the island of Aegina and Piraeus. A sunken city is found at the sea bottom of Vagionia where one can even distinguish the cobblestone roads and the foundations of ancient households.
The bay of Vagionia is of special archaeological interest, because there was the ancient port that served the temple of Poseidon from 1,000 BC to about 150 BC. In modern history the bay was used as a base for the famous "Barbarinon" pirates from 1200 to 1400 AD. For this reason, in modern nautical charts, the bay of Vagionia is also referred to as the bay of Barbarias.
To come from the port of Poros to Vagionia, after passing the small bridge, keep left heading for Sinikismo and follow the twisting road among large pine trees which leads you to the restaurant "Paradeisos". Shortly after the tavern you will come across at the left a small sign, leading us to a smaller road, which lead us to the beautiful beach of Vagionia.
Also there are beaches opposite Poros island, in Galata. You will find there the sandy beaches of Plaka and Aliki, which are worth your visit.
In all the beaches there are beach bars and additionally for Neorio and Askeli there are training facilities for water sports.
