As Poros town is built on a small peninsula surrounded by quays, along the south and northwest sides, the harbour provides excellent shelter all year round. The closest airport to Poros island is the International Airport of Athens (IATA: ATH) and from the airport or the city centre, visitors can go to the port of Piraeus and take the ferry to Poros.
