Russian Bay or Daskalia bay is a well protected bay just 1.4 miles West of Poros. In the entrance of the bay is the tiny Daskalia island with a chapel. Anchor in about 6.0 meters wherever there is space. The bottom is sand and weed, good holding once through the weed. If the wind is variable or the anchorage is busy, it best to take a shore line to one of the rocks. The bay was named Russian because in the last century there was a Russian naval base here. The ruins of their storage facilities, ashore, can still be seen. In the entrance of the bay is the tiny Daskalia bay island with a chapel. Although a very pleasant anchorage, the water is murky and one’s peace is disturbed by the frequent wash from the ferries. Poros town is an hour and a quarter on foot, but quicker by dinghy.
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.
