Limnos harbour lays in the city of Myrina and is widely regarded as one of the prettiest in Greece; it can be found to the west of the Greek mainland and to the north of the Aegean Sea. There are copious ferry routes from Limnos, nearly all of which head to other Greek Islands or to coastal resorts on the Greek mainland.
The harbour is one of the busiest and most popular areas of the island, situated near a long street full completely of retail outlets. At the pier itself, the castle is found in the middle and separates the harbour into two; the southern side boasts harbour beach, whereas the north is filled with bars, clubs and young people creating an energetic vibe. Away from the buzzing nightlife and sandy beaches, there are natural landmarks to visit free of charge.
The Petrified Forest is arguably the most highly regarded attraction in Limnos; the unusual sight of mass vegetation being destroyed by a volcanic eruption will forever remain in the memory bank. As well as the forest, the Waterfalls of Kaspaka are well worth a visit, especially in the spring months when there is still plenty of water. Many days can be spent leisurely exploring the area, perfect for those hoping for a relaxing holiday in stunning surroundings.
Public transport isn’t Limnos’ best feature; the buses only leave two times a day from four destinations, and they are generally only used to take permanent residents to do their weekly shopping. The port is only a 20 minute walk from the town centre of Myrina, or there are taxis available should it be too hot to walk.
