Found on the southern part of the Aegean Sea, Leros is a relatively small Greek island with a population of just over 7000 people. There are numerous crossings from the port each day, nearly all of them are used to connect Leros with the neighbouring Greek islands.
Famous for the myriad of beaches along the shoreline, Leros is a popular tourist destination, especially in the summer months. The island is renowned for its wide variation of beaches, offering a number of sand and pebble beaches made for visitors to bask in the warm weather. It is the idyllic setting for those wishing to enjoy peace and quiet, whilst experiencing authentic Greek culture. There is also diving and snorkelling opportunities at some of the beaches to add some adventure to the serene lifestyle.
Away from the beaches, much like many of the Greek islands, Leros has an abundance of green valleys and picturesque bays to admire whilst enjoying some traditional Greek food. For those hoping to sample some of the island’s history, the archaeology museum and the churches are popular with tourists; the city of Platanos also hosts some interesting, rustic buildings.
All of the major cities that are designed to accommodate tourists are situated fairly close to the port, the capital city of Agia Marina can be reached within an hour long walk. For the cities a little further from the port, there are bus services available, stopping directly outside the ferry terminal.
