Portocheli (Πορτοχέλι ) Argolida


Portocheli or Porto Heli (Greek: Πορτοχέλι, also Porto Cheli) is a summer resort town in the municipality of Ermionida in the southeastern part of Argolis, Greece. It is situated on a bay of the Argolic Gulf, 6 km south of Kranidi and 40 km southeast of Nafplio. The island of Spetses is located 6 km south of Porto Heli. There are ferry connections from Porto Heli to the islands of Spetses, Hydra and Poros, and to Ermioni and Piraeus.[2] There is a small private airport, Porto Cheli Airport, south of the town.

The ancient city of Halieis (named Halike by Pausanias[3]), excavated by Michael H. Jameson, is situated near Porto Heli.[4]

King Constantine II of Greece lives with his wife the Queen Anne-Marie of Greece in Porto Cheli.[5]
