Poros Trizinias is located in the Saronic gulf and is one of many small islands found in this area. It is actually part of the group of islands called Argo-Saronic islands.
It is separated from the north-eastern coast of the Peloponnese by a narrow channel of about 250 meters making it accessible by both land and sea. Many water taxis and two ferries provide transportation to the island from the small mainland town of Galatas all day and night.

The proximity of Poros to the mainland and in particular to Piraeus is what makes it so popular. Within 45 minutes one can leave Poros and be on the main port of Athens. Boats travel to Poros frequently throughout the day and evening. It is central to many ancient sites inthe Peloponnese and tourists make Poros their home base as they venture out on day tours and cruises.
