Poros is 42 km away from Argostoli and coming from there the approach to the village is through the beautiful gorge of Poros, an impressive geological phenomenon in which the river Vohinas flows during the winter months.

Poros was built amphitheatrically along the beach. Thanks to the evolving combination of mountain-sea and its fish-rich waters, the village gained loyal visitors from the first years of the tourist development of Kefalonia. Due to the large area of ​​the village, the square by the sea plays an important social role. Walk and talk continue until late at night.
