Askeli Beach

Reviewed By alessandromG7102EB - Rome, Italy

Beautiful beach with crystal clear water, probably the clearest we’ve seen during our stay in Poros. Some rocks at the very beginning, then all sand. It’s one of the closest beach to the city center and the port, therefor you have to go quite early in the morning to find a good place. There are a couple of beach resorts with lots of umbrellas but not much space for free beach. Umbrella with 2 sunbeds for free but you have to take a drink for 3.50€ at least, one of the lowest prices in the island. The beach resorts restaurants have good quality food, even though not as a big choice as the tavernas in the city center, and higher prices.

I did not get into the water since I did not have time, but the water was clear and green. It is a very clean and nice beach and I promised myself to stay one night in Poros with my wife next time to enjoy it more. This is one of very rare places that I want to go back

Kanali Beach

Sheltered bay, calm water and sandy beach - three ingredients for a wonderful swim. I loved meeting the old ladies of the village who come early in the morning for their regular swim and social gathering.
