POROS (Village) LEFKADA - Greek Travel Pages



  Poros is a coastal village of Lefkada, on the southeast side of the island, built among the verdant stillness, close to the sea. Its charming view of the surrounding islands and the deep clear waters of Mikros Gialos (Little Beach), ideal for swimmers, is something you will never forget. The sea reflects the vibrant colour of the nature and displays the unique, deep azure-green of the Ionian Sea. Above Poros is one of the most ancient buildings on the island. It is a watch tower which surveys Cephalonia and Ithaki, and it is for this reason that Poros can be characterized as a 'balcony' form which one can clearly see the islands of Arkoudi, Oxies, Ithaki and Cephalonia. Also in Poros you wil find traditional tavernas with excellent Lefkadian food and, naturally, the unforgettable hospitality of the Lefkadians.
