Makris Gialos is an exquisite sandy beach 36 km from Myrina, the capital town and 7 km from Moudros in the south eastern part of Lemnos Island. The beach has crystal clear waters and it stretches several kilometres. It is good for bathing and ideal for wind surfing because of the constant winds. There is also some greenery along the side of the beach. If you are looking for a natural serene location away from the charged atmosphere of massive tourism, Makris Gialos would be a very good choice. There is a historically important archaeological site, Polichne, close to this location where hotel facilities are also available. The villages of Rousopouli and Kaminia come closer and are on the way to this beautiful beach.
Situated in the far northeastern part of the island, Neftina beach is one of the most stunning sandy beaches of the 100 or so beaches across Lemnos. To reach it, follow the ring road from the capital town of Myrina and move towards Agios Alexandros village.
