June 2021:

Russian Bay, Nisos Poros, Greece: We stayed here in early November and it was very quiet. Chatted to Maria who runs the Russian Bay beach bar (has done for 12 years) and she remains open if there are boats in. The weather was changing and boats were very few so she was closing at the end of the week. We anchored with lines ashore on the east side and had very peaceful nights with little wash off passing ferries. I discussed the music with Maria (although none was on whilst we were there) and she is unapologetic; she says her business is feeding and watering people in a convivial atmosphere and the music is part of that. She says if you don’t like the music don’t come into the bay! The water is warm here and very clear and flat so great for swimming and paddle boarding. Maria has free Wi-Fi, and beers are reasonably priced for a beach bar at €10 for 3.
