Its surface is about 31km2 and it has 3,780 inhabitants. The ancient name of Poros was Pogon. Like other ports in the Saronic, it is a popular weekend destination for Athenian travellers.Poros consists of two islands: Sphairia (, ), the southern part, which is of volcanic origin, where today's city is located, and Kalaureia (, ), also Kalavria or Calauria (meaning 'gentle breeze'), the northern and largest part. A bridge connects the two islands over a narrow strait.The community of Poros has total population of 3,993 persons, a land area of 49.582km², and the following villages: Poros, (pop. 3,651)Ágios Nektários (pop. 101).Kyaní Aktí (pop. 213) a part of the mainland at the easternmost point of the Peloponnese peninsula between the island of Poros and the island of Hydra and next to the municipalities of Troizinia and Ermionida.
