If Myrina Island wasn’t so far away from everywhere, then it would probably be the world’s most visited Island. Wild and unspoilt, Myrina has preserved an amazing level of authenticity. This small island boasts amazing landscapes, charming beaches and unique sites, making it one of Greece’s perfect spots to de-stress. Myrina Island, unlike most islands in Greece, offers peacefulness.

Sightseeing

Whether it is a romantic evening with your partner or some time alone to meditate, the most peaceful moments in this island are those that are spent watching the sun sink slowly into the sky. The landscape is rough, with tall grass and barren rock low hills and almost void of trees.

Beaches

Myrina is a beautiful island with splendid unspoiled beaches. These beaches are very rewarding during summer. The most popular beaches include Thanos, Riha Nera, Platy, Evgatis, Keros to the east and Gomati to the north. If swimming is not your thing perhaps windsurfing and kitesurfing are what you want. The wind and geographical characteristics at these beaches are ideal for windsurfing and kitesurfing. If you need something really relaxing, there is a neat spa which uses of the hot mineral spring. This is really a remarkable island for an unforgettable experience.

Windmills

Traditional windmills are dotted throughout the island bearing witness to the lasting farming tradition on the island. The use of windmills here was extensive thanks to the strong winds blowing on the island. For centuries these windmills were grinding grains and sesame seeds grown on the island. Whether restored or abandoned, alone or in groups, these windmills are among the most beautiful buildings that you will see. Some of the windmills on this island have been refurbished and operate as hotels.

Conclusion

Whether you are touring throughout Limnos or staying in one of its islands, a great idea is to stop over in Myrina Island for a day. There are plenty of things to see and do. However, in my opinion, one day is enough to explore everything that this charming island has to offer.
