Agia Marina

Agia Marina

Agia Marina, Leros port and waterfront. I didn’t appreciate sitting at home, planning for this trip how nice this port was. Firstly, I assumed the Dodecanese ferry we were on, would take us to the port of Lakki. Instead all ferries go to Agia Marina.

The waterfront is so pretty. Colourful churches, buildings and cafes beckon the traveller.

Giannakos car hire

We hired a car from Giannakos in Lakki and were asked to bring it back to the port at Agia Marina. Giannakos also has an office there. We were able to leave our suitcases there whilst we had lunch and were waiting for the ferry to take us to Kos.

Booked on a boat trip

As Lakki was so quiet, we drove to here one evening. We had a pleasant drink whilst watching the sunset. Not planning a boat trip on this holiday. Nevertheless, saw an advertisement for a boat trip to the ‘White islands’ with Agios Georgios boat. One of the best boat trips been on.

Views

From the waterfront, as you look up you can see the church on top of the hill with the Greek flag. Another day, we were at this church by the castle, looking down on Agia Marina. The pretty windmill in the sea makes for a nice photo.

Although we didn’t venture to Alinda resort, further up the coast, you could see it in the distance.
