Porto Heli (or Porto Cheli) is located in the Southernmost part of the Peloponese coast in the Saronic & Argolic sailing area and opposite Spetses island (2NM). A pine-covered peninsula surrounds the bay and creates a large, natural, safe harbour for many sailing and motor yachts.
Porto Heli is one of the most popular and cosmopolitan tourist resorts in Argolida mainly for Greek people and lately for many yachtsmen looking for nice coves to swim and safe shelter to moor or anchor.
Porto Heli is picturesque village which offers sightseeing, beautiful beaches, a variety of shops, waterside tavernas with fresh fish, restaurants, cafes and a couple of nightclubs and late bars.
