Experience it

Can you imagine what would lava look like after emerging from the depths of the earth and blending in with the sea?

Like scoops of ice cream, perhaps?

You can witness the impressive result of this natural phenomenon at the north part of the island of Limnos, specifically at cape Falakro. Imagine yellow colored rock formations that look like sculptures fading out upon contact with the sea and you, standing there in between two bays and gazing at the endless sea.

If you still happen to have a few more drops of drinking water, there’s a beach nearby called ¨Pigadeli tis Panagias¨ (Mary’s little well) which is perfect for a refreshing dip. Isolated and beautiful as it is, the beach also reveals a wonderful feature. A natural shaped well in the middle of its length.

Apparently, there is a slight issue with the signage in Limnos. Signs cannot be seen here as well as other places, and although they are only in Greek, no one ever gets really lost. After a moderate mountainous 1,3km route – with unusual rocks that would more likely remind you of castles- you’ll face a roofless church built high on the rock’s indentation waiting for you. And then watch the sun fading away behind the mountain Athos.

The action is here. A famous wide beach with people visiting from all corners of the world to enjoy windsurfing, kitesurf and many other water sport activities throughout their holidays.
