LEROS ISLAND DAY OUT

icon-excursions-boat-tourTake a day out to another one of the Dodecanese islands – Leros.  Visit this unspoilt and beautiful island with a cosmopolitan feel, a chance to have a memorable experience.

Setting sail from Myrties we passed the resorts of Myrties, Masouri and Emborios, an excellent photo opportunity.  We arrive at Panteli in around 40 minutes, a picturesque fishing port with several fish tavernas, cafe bars and a sand/shingle beach.

Take a trip up to the Fortress which was built in the 7th century by the Byzantine people and, visit the church inside Virgin Mary – The Lady of the Fortress.

Then take a trip to the war museum in Merkia, only 1 km from Lakki (the “Italian town”, the buildings here will remind you of Italy!).  As you go around Leros you can see the influences of the island from the Italians, the Turkish and the Greeks.  Leros has lots more to offer and many places to visit.

Agia Marina is the most popular destination of the island, although all of Leros is lush, green and beautiful.

Duration is 7- 8 hours.
