In the south-east part of the Aegean Sea, located between Patmos and Kalymnos, Leros is an island with a very healthy climate ideal for a quiet holiday. Evergreen, with many inviting coves and beautiful sandy beaches, Leros relaxes the visitor with its tranquil landscape. Not very touristy, the main port of Lakki is one of the best examples of Art Deco architecture in Greece.
It was designed by Mussolini's architects in 1923 and although in defiance of the dictator's wishes, the capital was subsequently moved above the village of Platanos. The rest of the island is green with stunning beaches and large bays. Leros is the ideal home base for sailing trips to the coast of Turkey and the other Dodecanese islands.
Leros Marina is the first private marina and boatyard in the Dodecanese sailing area. The Leros Municipal Airport (IATA: LRS), serving the island of Leros, is in the northeast part of the island in Partheni, 17km from Lakki, only 20 minutes drive from the marina.
