A day on Poros

The two smaller islands, Sferia and Kalavria, make up Poros paradise, home to Dutch Rik and his Greek wife Katerina. Katerina herself was born and raised on Poros and knows the island like the back of her hand. Together they run a hotel, bistro and glamping. On top of that, they organize various activities on and around the island to suit all kinds of desires.

Sea kayaking 

For anyone who likes to try something new, sea kayaking is highly recommended. This relatively new sport offers the ultimate freedom. You are close to nature and can enjoy the beautiful turquoise seawater and the coastline of Poros. The waters of the Saronic Gulf are perfect for mastering sea kayaking but are certainly also suitable for advanced sailors. This is also a great way for children to explore the nature of Poros. Everything is conducted under the supervision of a BCU level 3 sea coach at all times. 

Suppen (Stand-up paddleboarding)

Another emerging sport is known as ‘supping,’ where you stand on a board and navigate the water by paddling. With supping, waves aren’t necessary, so you can engage in this sport at any time. This activity takes place at the stunning beach of Askeli, allowing you to relish beautiful views while stand-up paddling.
