Mikros Gialos means “small bay”, and thatquite accurately describes the beach here. If you are looking for a quiet spot for a peaceful holiday, this could be the place for you. The bay is surrounded by undulating green hills and has white sand with clear, calm seas. The beach is considered part of the nearby village of Poros, which is around four kilometers away from the island’s main road.

Mikros Gialos has largely escaped development,  but has enough cafes along the beachfront to suit most tastes. People come here to relax and enjoy the scenery although the calm clear waters are particularly inviting. Take a dip, put on your snorkel and mask, or maybe just rent a sun lounger and a parasol to enjoy this quiet spot.

If you want something to do in the evening, Sivota is nearby, and it has a more active nightlife. However, if you are looking to unwind in the tranquil beauty of a bay, this is the spot for you. In fact, there is camping nearby if you want the complete experience of being in the natural beauty of Greece.

Whatever you may desire, this beach is worth a visit because it has stunning views of the landscape and the mountains in neighboring bays, and the water is so calm that it is like a lake.
