means "crossing" and so the island's name comes from the sea crossing of 200m that separates Poros Island from the Peloponnesian coast.
Since ancient times, Poros comprised of two islands: Sferia, a small islet of volcanic origin where the small traditional town of Poros is found, and the green Kalavria, connected by a narrow sea channel.
Poros is one of the Saronic Islands, the greenest and nearest to Peloponnese, with taxi-boats and a small ferryboat providing frequent transfers from and to Galatas Harbor.
