Right South of the NE tip of Limnos there is a nice cove that provides some shelter from the meltemi and good shelter from the southerlies. The best place is to anchor off in 3.5-4.5 m depth on a sand spot inside the water breaker of the small fishing harbor in the North side. With a strong meltemi some swell comes in but it is perfectly safe. The small village of Plaka is a 45 min walk where only basic provisions can be found. Caution: To the Eaat towards the beech it gets shallow very quickly.
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.
