NEORIO Settlement POROS

Overview

  Neorio is the Greek word for Shipyard, because of the shipyard that existed in the area during the 18th century. The settlement is situated at the southwestern part of Kalavria, amongst the pine tree forest. It was a favorite resort for the Athenians during this century and many villas were built. Many people of culture passed their summers here, such as the poet George Seferis and the author Henry Miller.
  Today it is a small, elegant and quiet tourist resort, with several tavernas, a supermarket and gift shop around the sandy beach. Watersports and parachuting are available. Near Neorio there is the area of the Love Bay, a sandy cove with crystal waters, where the pine trees hang over the sea and the Russian Naval Station, with ruins of the shipyards.
