Welcome to Krithoni & Alinda
Starting just beyond the first headland north of Agia Marina, the twin resorts of Krithoni and Alinda sit next to each other on Alinda Bay, running parallel to the beach and bordered by kafeneia and restaurants. Leros’ longest beach is at Alinda – although narrow, it’s shaded and sandy with clean, shallow water. Set just back from the sea, a poignant war cemetery holds British casualties from the 1943 Battle of Leros.
For the best sun-worshipping in these parts, continue through Krithoni and Alinda to Dio Liskaria Beach (a few minutes’ scooter ride). Bookended by rocks and with its own taverna, it’s lapped by aquamarine waves.
