Limnos is best known for its amazing seafood, which is caught fresh from the ocean and marinated in a mouth-watering combination of Mediterranean flavours which scent the air. Feast on course after course of the island’s incredible meze - and of course, it’s all washed down with an iced glass of Ouzo. Yamas!
Exploration by hire car or mountain bike is highly recommended - the interior is untouched by tourism. Make sure you visit the historical archaeological site, Poliochni dating back to the 4th Millennium BC and the church of Virgin Mary Kakkaviotissa, nestled inside the huge rocks of Mount Kakkavos.
If you’re into wind and kite surfing, then Keros beach is the place to be, revered worldwide as one of the best places in Europe to enjoy the sport. With perfect conditions almost every day during the summer months, it’s a truly rewarding and exhilarating way to while away a sunny afternoon.
Nightlife on the island is lively yet low key, with a handful of clubs and bars in Myrina and along Avalonas beachfront, which offer plenty of entertainment and atmosphere. The beachfront of Romeikos Yialos, north of the castle, is the liveliest, with a selection of cafés, bars, live music venues and clubs.
The Byzantine Castle of Myrina sits on a hill overlooking the town. Built by Emperor Andronicus Komninos, it’s a 20-minute along a pretty footpath, during which you’re likely to see some of the 200 deers who make the castle surrounds their home. The locals provide the deer with food and water.
If you’re looking to recreate the Greek holidays of your childhood, or have grown jaded by overdeveloped resorts, Limnos might just be the Greek tonic you are looking for. Refreshingly old-fashioned, it bears all the fruits of a great Greek holiday - beaches - check, great restaurants - check, ancient architecture - check - but with that dash of traditional charm. Whether it’s a family getaway or a romantic jaunt, there’s plenty to keep all occupied, with great facilities minus the large crowds.
