Introduction & General Information

Located between Kalymnos and Patmos, Leros island is another place ideal for those who crave for most absolute tranquillity on a beautiful island. Having a coastline 71 km long as well as a mountainous topography, it offers a number of gulfs and beaches, some of them with some vegetation.

In general terms, the villages of Leros are the typical Aegean villages in this specific area and are scattered all around the volcanic area, from which there is rather high visibility towards other neighboring islands. Its waters also have great visibility, as it is usually easy to see distant points located as far as 30 or 45 meters deep. Tourists enjoy visiting the several shipwrecked warships and tankers, a result of World War II.

They also enjoy sunbathing and bathing in the warm waters. There are many underwater caves to explore on Leros, which is why the island is developing as a diving destination. Most tourists also enjoy local festivals, full of typical music and traditional dances.
