Welcome to Leros
Leros is said to have been the original home of Artemis the Huntress. There’s certainly something alluringly untamed and beautiful about the island, which is scattered with stunning Orthodox churches, dazzling blue coves and whitewashed villages. The capital, Platanos, with its stark windmills and ancient fortress towering above, makes a striking centrepiece, while down below, the busy little harbour of Agia Marina pulses with enterprise. Leros is less about chasing activities and more about worshipping Helios, seeking out your favourite beach, sampling the delectable cuisine at a sun-kissed taverna and allowing the magic of the place to slowly unfold.
