What's Limnos Like?
The main town and ferry port of Myrina features a Byzantine fortress in a lofty position, and a medieval old town with narrow paved alleys. There are natural springs a short distance from the town. Most visitors are heading for the island beaches though, with options to suit all tastes. Platy and Chavouli beaches are among the most picturesque, while Gomati features rolling sand dunes and Keros is a popular choice for water sports enthusiasts. Ancient ruins include the archaeological site of Hephaestia, extensive city relics comprising palaces, baths, a Roman theater and a necropolis, as well as traces of early Christian churches. Natural wonders include a remarkable petrified forest near the town of Moudros, with fossilized trees, roots and fruit over 20 million years old. The wetlands of Alyki and Chortarolimni are ideal for birdwatchers, with habitats and breeding grounds for rare species. Limnos hotels offer a convenient base for discovering the diverse attractions of the island.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Limnos
Limnos is not on the most popular island tourist trails so English is not always understood. Have a few handy Greek phrases to use in cafes and restaurants. Transport infrastructure is limited so you may have to do some walking to discover some of the island's attractions. Comfortable walking shoes and a sun hat are essential. Renting a bike allows exploration of interesting short routes around Myrina and Moudros. Limnos is well known for the quality of its seafood, but the more scenic the restaurant's location, the higher the prices. To find out more details about Limnos hotels, use the accurate and honest reviews from past guests on the Hotels.com site.
