Lemnos is a large island in North Eastern Aegean, located between Lesvos and Thassos. Due to the large distance from Athens, Lemnos island has not developed in tourism and remains a secluded place even in high season. The island distinguishes for the wild mountainous geology and the large sandy beaches all around the coastline. Far from Myrina and Plati, the main tourist places of Lemnos Greece, these sandy beaches are almost vast and ideal for total privacy. Some of them are great for windsurfing, a sports that is gradually developing on the island over the last years. Important sightseeings to visit during your Lemnos holidays are the Medieval Castle of Myrina, Ancient Poliochni, Ancient Kavirio and the legandary cave of Philoctetes.
