Dodecanese Patmos Leros Nisyros Kalymnos

Leros

Leros Island is an unspoilt and calm island, which has a lot of charm to offer the visitor who has the patience to explore it. It has a very attractive capital composed of three districts called Agia Marina, Platanos and Pandeli. Various picturesque villages and fine beaches are scattered around Leros.

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

Its waters also have a 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 the 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 getting a reputation as a diving destination.

Another interesting destination on Leros is the Lakki Theatre. The European Union is carrying out an important restoration project of this outstanding art house, one of the most beautiful buildings on any of the Greek islands, which was bombarded during the 2nd World War. But Lakki theatre is not the only attraction on the island. There is also a beautiful castle dating to the Byzantine times which is worth a visit as well.
