Poros Beach Camping
Vassiliki, your arrival point on the island, is a pretty waterside village festooned with lights, tavernas and a vibrant spirit. It’s a lovely spot to ponder the sage-green smudge of nearby Ithaki before hiring a car and exploring the island. Nine miles (15 km) away from Vassiliki is Poros. A snake-like road slithers past shady groves, dozing horses and somnolent villages on its way down to Poros’ fine-pebbled beach, the air thick with honeysuckle and thyme and the foreground resplendent with fluorescent butterflies. A spit from the water, Poros Beach Camping draws an eclectic mix of visitors (mostly Italian, with the occasional Brit thrown in for good measure).
By day, relax in the shaded comfort of the site’s stylish restaurant or just flop on the beach, watching the blue horizon and turquoise sea fight for supremacy. There’s no real need to move at all, since you can start your day with fresh bread and honey in the restaurant and finish it off with souvlaki and salad at the nearby Café del Mare come night fall.
FacilitiesPlenty of facilities: a swimming pool, play room, bar, restaurant, shower block/WC (hole in the floor), disabled facilities, post office, first aid, Internet, laundry services and kayak rental.
NearbyWhy not take a trip with Seven Island Cruises (€15 per person)? True to their moniker, they will take you around the surrounding 7 islands, including Ithaki, Kefalonia’s beautiful port of Fizcardo and Scorpio, exclusively owned by the Onassis dynasty.
Food & DrinkCafé del Mare, the nearby taverna on the beach, is unpretentious and friendly, with a great menu leaning heavily towards seafood, plus a healthy wine selection.
