Comments Off on Soak Up the Sun in Limakis Agapis Beach in Poros
Poros and the Peloponnese are only separated from one another via a small channel. This fact impacts the culture of the island somewhat. Although the island is tucked a bit off the beaten track, it’s close proximity to the Peloponnese can give guests some options while visiting here. However, there is plenty to do on Poros during your stay that it never really seems necessary to leave.
While on the island, visiting the beach should be one of your top priorities. While there are a lot of beaches here, one of the best on the island is Limakis Agapis Beach, which is also called Love Bay. If you only have time to lounge at one beach, this one should be your highest priority. Here’s some information that will help you enjoy your stay even more:
Limakis Agapis is in a Beautiful Setting
One of the things that sets this beach apart is how unique the landscape is. The fine, white pebbles are a unique feature that adds to the beauty of the beach. However, if your feet are sensitive, you’ll want to avoid walking on the pebbles with your bare feet. The water itself is a gorgeous, emerald green color and it is also warm and ideally suited for a leisurely swim in the water. The beach is surrounded by pine trees that can provide shade if the day gets a little too hot. Otherwise, it is relaxing place to sit and relax and soak up the sun. The natural beauty can also be very romantic, which is why the beach bears the name of Limakis Agapis, or Love Bay. However, the beach is enjoyable for people of all ages, including families. Be sure to rent one of the many sun beds that stretch across the beach. The rocks can get hot while sitting in the sun.
Getting to Limakis Agapis Beach
Before you can arrive at Limakis Agapis Beach, or Love Bay, you need to first arrive at the island. There is no airport here, which means that in order to spend time on Poros you’ll need to take a boat or a ferry. If you’re flying into Athens, you’ll need to take transportation to the port of Piraeus, which is close to the airport, and then take a ferry to the island of Poros. The ferry runs regularly, but you’ll need to check the schedules just to make sure. Most of the ferries also connect Poros with other Saronic Gulf islands such as Methana and Spetses. However, you’ll want to check the schedules just to make sure. Once you are on the island, you can take a taxi from wherever you are staying on the island, or catch one of the buses that goes directly to the beach. Your best bet is to catch the bus in Poros Town, which is the main hub of activity on the island.
