I'm thinking of renting a boat to travel around the island and the nearby waters. Which port is it best to leave from? Does it make a difference?
Do you know which is nicer? In your opinionThat depends on where you want to go with the boat. If you want to go towards Agia Efimia or Antisamos then Sami will suit. From Poros you can go towards Skala or towards Sami, there are a couple small beaches, like koutsoupia but be warned wasps can be a problem on or close to the beach. If you head from Poros towards Sami there are beaches there as well.
Thank you so much!! I hate it when the beach is basically connected to the limaniIf you are asking me which is nicer to stay at, they are both busy commercial ports. Poros would be slightly better because at least half of the beach on the northern side of the river ( creek in summer) is away from the busy port.
In my opinion it is much nicer to stay in Skala or Agia Efimia. You have to visit lake Melisani in Sami.
Poros is ok then on the northern part but don't expect to find sand on the beach, it is all pebble of varying sizes but not overly busy.Thank you so much!! I hate it when the beach is basically connected to the limani
I agree, Skala is the best for surePoros is ok then on the northern part but don't expect to find sand on the beach, it is all pebble of varying sizes but not overly busy.
I would suggest Skala a much better option, again pebble beach but much smaller pebbles, the beach is much busier, more upmarket places to stay and lots more as well. Prices reflect that of course. If you stay in Skala and you have a car, you can rent them everywhere in the island, Mounda beach is close by and there you will find sand and not as busy as Skala. Depending on the time of the year you there you may get lucky and see baby turtles hatching and heading for the water.
