Leros capital city is Platanos that in recent years has been connected with Agia Marina in the north and Panteli to the south on both sides of the slopes of Apitiki hill where is the Castle of Virgin Mary. Krithoni and Alinta are a few km away from Agia Marina and they are the most popular tourist resorts with many hotels. Panteli is the picturesque fishing village of the island with a well organised beach, fishing boats and several taverns and cafes as well as several rooms and self catering accommodations. Vromolithos located next to Panteli, has a good beach and some hotels and apartments. Other resorts on the island is Xerokampos to the south, with a nice beach, from here you can go to Kalymnos by boat. Gourna to the west side of the island has a huge sandy beach. The areas of the north, where is the airport of Leros, incldes Partheni and Plefouti with a beautiful beach with pebbles and trees for shade.
Leros has an Airport which connects daily the island with Athens the Capital city of Greece. Leros island has also daily connections by ferry boats and hydrofoils to Piraeus and most of the Greek islands of Dodecanese like Patmos ,Kalymnos, Lipsi, Samos, Kos, Rhodes, Symi and Nisyros. We hope that soon you will visit that small paradise in the Aegean sea, the island of the Goddess of hunting-Diana. Leros has been neglected from tourism until the beginning of the 70's .The last 30 years though the Europeans mostly Italians ,Scandinavians ,Germans ,French and British has discovered that small Paradise that has a particular beauty that is difficult to find on other islands. Leros is a Green island in contrast with the most of the Dodecanese or Cyclades that most of there islands are rocky and dry. You can see obvious the difference as the ferry boat enters the gulf of Laki or if you are coming with the Hydrofoil from Kalymnos to Leros how the nature changes while approaching Leros having a panoramic view at the bays of Vromolithos and Panteli and then entering the port of Agia Marina at the bay of Alinda. Small hills covered from Eucalypt ,Pines and Tamarisk trees ,small beaches hidden on small bights ,an oasis for the tourist that wants something different from the typical major tourist islands like Rhodes, Kos, Corfu, Mykonos or the volcanic island and most unique of all Santorini. Leros and its people have kept there local character unspoiled from the package holiday tourism.
