We took a taxi to get there and back - walking would take a lot of time and pretty far from local bus stops.

This is the location of the older ruins of the temple of Poseidon. It's not the temple whose photos are popular, its mainly ruins and sanctuary.

Not my preferred spot to visit and would skip it if not needed. The views of the sea and surrounding areas are ok, walking the ruins takes 10mins.

Overall, would preferably skip it and chill at a beach or near port.

It's laways good to revisit this site. In recent years there hasn't been a season of digs but the area, the lower courses of stonework and inscriptions on some of the block stones are very well-worth seeing.

IMO the best way to get the the Temple is to walk

Know what you’re getting—note, it’s NOT the Temple of Poseidon south of Athens which is in many of the photos here (with the columns). It’s a site of ruins only. Not much to see other than a great view and a nice road up/down. I jogged up and it was super quiet, but the drive would be pleasant as well.

Nice view, amazing to see all the stones but there isn't actually a temple with pillars like is indicated in the photo. It's a shame it wasn't more preserved, there isn't too much of the temple left and there is near to nothing to prevent people from walking on it. Would recommend for a small trip.

Is a 10 min or so drive from Poros port. Free entry but not that much to see. Signs in English about the Swedish archaeologists. Would benefit from more info on Poseidon.

The temple in fascinating to visit. The sunset view is simply stunning.
There is very little to there other than the temple. Only two tavernas both of which are very welcoming.
If you are interested in ancient Athenian architecture this is a must see place.

The temple is illuminated at night making it quite a spectacle.

There are few ruins left on this site, the descriptive panels are very complete you can read the history of the archaeological site in detail. The site is not paid and it is worth making a trip at least to experience the thrill of a historic place

Not easy to get to unless you have a car or scooter. Ample parking and few visitors. The site is not bad but it is quite big and it is hard to get your bearings on where to start your tour. You ARE alone when on the site (free admission) even though there is a ticket booth that is closed. They should number the site and have arrows directing you to info boards so you can understand what you are looking at. A nice place to spend some time.

We visited hoping to see high columns and majestic ruins, but those are in Athens. Some people have gone confused and uploaded incorrect photos onto this attraction profile. Nevertheless, still a nice walk, lovely views. The ruins are pretty much just bases of what was once there. Free of charge.
