The Odyssey center is located in Askeli, a small housing area just outside Poros town. Located at the seaside, it has around 500 local inhabitants. There is a regular bus service between the town center and the monastery of Poros, Askeli lies in between and has several bus stops, one bus stop is just at the corner in front of Odyssey. During high season one might also go to the town center by one of the little taxiboats that pass by at the beach in Askeli.
Walking inland from the seaside, one will find two supermarkets where all basic items can be found and sometimes also some souvenirs. Alcoholic drinks are not sold the children under 18.
As you will find out very soon, the scooter is the most popular means of transport on the island, although you’ll notice the odd bike or even e-bike from time to time. Both scooter and bicycle in different forms can be hired at the scooter center just 50 meters from Odyssey. At the seaside in Askeli there are many local taverns with local specialties. Also a visit to the local bars, such as Sail bar, might surprise you as they will have regularly live music performances.
