Askeli has a youth vibe—and this beachside resort just a few minutes northeast of the town buzzes with activity day and night. This narrow strip of sand is the island’s longest beach, with a panoramic view that extends from the open sea to the top of the Aderes ridge overlooking Trizina’s coast on the Peloponnese. The sandy stretch is as perfect for strolling as it is for sunbathing between cooling dips in the pristine waters or lounging in the shade of tall eucalyptus trees lining the road.
Askeli offers a range of activities, from water sports to beach volley and a beach bar that pumps out pulsating beats all day. The coastal road is framed by bars, cafes, tavernas, restaurants catering to a range of tastes. Askeli also offers a range of accommodations, from sea-front hotels to self-catering apartments set among lavish gardens within a range of 50 to 200 meters from the beach and close to shopping.
Getting there: Askeli is about a 30-minute walk from Poros Town. There is regular bus service during summer to and from the town on the Monastery bus line and is accessible by taxi, private car, motorcycle, or bicycle. It can also be reached by sea via water taxi on special arrangement.
