Agios Efstratios Guide

The Greek island of Agios Efstratios is a small island located in the northern Aegean Sea. Sometimes called Saint Eustratius it is around 30 km to the south west of the island of Lemnos and around 80 km to the north west of Lesbos. The island forms the regional unit of Lemnos along with Lemnos and other nearby islets. Visitors should know that Agios Efstratios is a quiet island with little rainfall during the winter with very hot summers. Popular beaches on the island include Agios Antonios, Lemonies, Avlakia which are mainly reached by caique. Agios Efstratios is linked by boat with Limnos, Agios Konstantinos, Kymi and Kavala.

ferries departing from the island depart to the port of Piraeus and to the nearby Sporades islands of Skopelos, Alonnisos and Skyros and others. There are also ferry connections to other islands of the North Aegean via a third island, and to the ports of Thessaloniki, Kavala and Alexandroupoli with a crossing time of between 5 and 10.5 hours depending on the number of ports called at en route.


Lavrio Guide

Lavrio is a town and port located at the tip of the Attiki Peninsular and is not that popular with visitors as it doesn't seem to be mentioned very much in guidebooks about Greece. This is surprising especially given that it is home to the oldest and largest ancient amphitheatre in the country and also to a giant hole that would be popular to visitors who enjoy unexplained phenomena. In ancient times the town was known for its mining and industry and in fact the large columns from the temple of Posideon at nearby Sounion were mined in the town. There are also silver mines in the town that date back to prehistoric times.

Although the town's port is less important than the Port of Piraeus, it still plays an important role in the development of the region. The port can accommodate passenger ferries, commercial boats, fishing boats and yachts and is the perfect port of departure for passenger ferries departing to the Cyclades and to islands in the eastern Aegean.
