Explore Limnos

We’ve been here, at this magical place, already a couple of years and we still don’t know what makes almost all of our visitors to keep the memory of it, deep in their hearts and come back over and over again. Rather the countless bays with gorgeous beaches mostly empty even in the high season? Whether all the taverns in the villages surrounding the spot? Whether may be the food they offer seemingly as everywhere in Greece but still tastier. Whether the hospitality of the locals still not corrupted by the mass tourism? Or the great conditions for water sports in the bay of Keros? Most probably is a consistency of all! The fact, there is a differentiated Limnos surf community, which makes the island not only a pleasant place for work and vacations but an interesting social environment.

We are absolutely sure that you will experience the magical spirit of Limnos!
