A thriving and popular resort, offering the best beach on the island with a gently shelving sea and the shade of Tamarisk trees.
In a deep bay on the east of the island, Alinda is one of the most popular resorts on Leros. Along with near neighbour, Crithoni, the majority of holidaymakers to the island head in this direction. And if Alinda is your choice, perhaps you already know it’s because they’ll have bagged the best beach on the island. It’s long and narrow, but the soft sand and pebbles border a clear, shallow sea. Above all, shade is offered by an attractive line of tamarisk trees running parallel to the beach, as well as from the inevitable parasols with sunbeds. There’s no excuse for burning here.
While not the place for wild nights out, perhaps, Alinda has appeal for all age groups. It’s got all the traditional Greek elements with the feel of an established resort. Young families love the clean, shallow sea and pretty beaches.
