TRENDING IN LEMNOS
Find out everything about your holidays in Lemnos on our travel guide! Lemnos (or Limnos) is a large island sitting in the northeastern Aegean Sea, between Lesvos and Thassos. Due to its long distance from Athens, Lemnos is one of those Greek islands that has managed to stay under the radar, so it is a rather secluded place, even during the summer. Its unspoiled charm makes it a great destination for those who seek privacy and relaxation.
Lemnos boasts a beautiful natural setting. It is packed with mountains, while its coastline is fringed with sandy bays. Except for Myrina Lemnos and Plati, which are somehow touristy, the rest of Lemnos beaches are vast and offer total privacy. Some of them are perfect for windsurfing, which is slowly becoming a thing in Lemnos!
Lemnos Greece also has a lot to offer in terms of sightseeing! The Medieval Castle of Myrina, the Ancient Poliochni, the Ancient Kavirio and the legendary cave of Philoctetes are not to be missed!
Limnos is a great holiday destination off the beaten tourist trail! Find out how to get there and some amazing photos!!
Lemnos Greece is quite a big island off the beaten tourist trail. This island stands out for its endless sandy shores, mountainous villages, and interesting archaeological sites. Trivia: According to Mythology, the ancient Greek god Hephaestus used to run a chopper workshop on the island. That’s why the locals built a town named Hephaestia in his honor.
Sightseeing is one of the best things to do in Lemnos, as the island is full of ancient monuments. The Ancient Kavirio is a must-visit! It is a place strongly related to secret religious ceremonies, so it oozes a mysterious charm. Right below the Ancient Kavirio, there’s the Cave of Philoctetes, a legendary hero who was abandoned there on his way to Troy. Other must-visits are the Medieval Castle on a hill above Myrina, the island’s capital! In Myrina Lemnos, you’ll also find a wide selection of Lemnos hotels, accommodations, restaurants, cafes, and facilities.
And what can we say about Lemnos beaches? The endless sandy shores of the island are wonderful! The best part is, most of them are secluded, offering total privacy to visitors. What’s more, many of the island’s beaches are ideal for windsurfing, an activity that becomes more and more popular every year in Lemnos!
Limnos is the perfect island for private and relaxing holidays away from the hustle and bustle!
