Galatas is the sister town of Poros, which is just 350 metres away across a small sea chanel. It has a pleasant waterfront, where you can sit and relax in many of the cafes, bars or tavernas, enjoying wonderful views of Poros. Galatas is still a very traditional Greek coastal town, where time seems to stand still. In Galatas they say that “the best thing about being on Poros is the beautiful view”, especially at night with all the lights reflecting on the sea. The cost of living in Galatas is slightly cheaper than Poros and the tourist market is undeveloped. There are plenty of hotels, tavernas, cafes and bars along the waterfront, but the town still retains its genuine Greek feeling and most of the inhabitants live by growing olives and citrus-fruits (the town is famous for its 30,000 citrus tree Lemonodassos Lemon forest) as opposed to tourism.
