Leros Guide

The Greek island of Leros is one of the Dodecanese islands that are located in the Aegean Sea, and is around 200 km from the port of Piraeus. Leros is close to the neighbouring islands of Patmos, Lipsi, Kalymnos, Agia Kyriaki and Farmakos. The small island, measuring around 74 sq. km, has a population of just under 8,000 residents, which doubles during the summer in order to cater for visiting tourists. The beaches of Partheni and Blefouti in the north of the island are popular with tourists, as are the beaches of Gourna, Kokali and Ayia Isidoros on the west side of the island and the large bay of Alinda in the central eastern part of the island. The bay of Alinda is also home to Pangias and Crithoni beaches. The picturesque port of Agia Marina lies to the south east of the bay of Alinda, which is around a 10 minute walk to Platanos, the heart of the island.

The journey time from Piraeus to the island by ferry is around 11 hours. Leros also has also daily connections by conventional ferry and hydrofoil to most of the Greek islands of Dodecanese like Patmos, Lipsi, Samos, Kos, Rhodes, Symi and Nisyros. There are also weekly connection to some of the islands of the Cyclades like Syros and Amorgos.

Agios Kirikos Guide

The town of Agios Kirykos is located on the Greek island of Ikaria which lies in the North Aegean Sea. Many sailors and captains built their houses in Agios Kirykos, which is the island's capital, which gave the town a very nautical feeling. Many of the exhibits on display in the archaeological museum have been recovered from the sea bed and therefore the nautical theme continues. The sea around the island, according to myth, is where the son of Daedalus landed when the sun burn his wax wings and that the islet of Nikari, opposite Agios Kirykos, is the resting place of Ikarus.

The island's terrain is mainly mountainous and covered by Cypress, Plane, Oak and Pine trees. The tree coverage on the island enable the ground to retain moisture which in turn enable wild goats to graze. The forest of Radi, part of the Natura 2000 scheme, is considered to be the oldest in the Balkans. Low types of oak trees are its most numerous “residents”.

The island is accessible by boat from the port of Piraeus and Kavála, in the north of the country.
