Hire your own boat. Be adventurous and explore the clear waters to find the secluded beaches dotted around the island. The water taxi runs three times a day to the beaches of Skala and Poros. Travel to Skala for beautiful, golden, sandy beaches and magnificent cliffs that shape the striking landscape. Or hop on board to travel to Poros where you can take a tour of the traditional town by horse and carriage and have time to sample the delicious island cuisine. If you prefer to stay on land, take a trip to the island's capital, Argostoli, where you can experience the local way of life on the island.
