Welcome to Limnos
Isolated Limnos, alone in the northeastern Aegean save for neighbouring Agios Efstratios, appeals to those looking for Greek island life that's relatively unaffected by modern tourism. Limnos' capital, Myrina, has retained its classic Greek fishing-harbour feel, while a grand Genoese castle provides a dramatic backdrop.
The island's eastern lakes are visited by spectacular flocks of flamingos and its central plain is filled with spring wildflowers. Superb sandy beaches lie near the capital and in more distant corners of the island.
