Getting to Leros
Where is Leros? The island lies at the northern end of the Dodecanese group north of Kalymnos, close to the coast of Turkey and in a clutch of islands than include Patmos, Lipsi and the larger Samos, to the north.
Domestic flights from Athens land at the small airport to the north of the island. Flights also operate less often to Rhodes to the south.
Leros is also a port of call for the fast catamarans of Dodekanisos Seaways that sail the route between Rhodes and Patmos daily. There are also small boat services to several other local islands.
The Leros road network is good, thanks to the Italians who occupied in the island in the last war and developed it as a military base. Even far-flung beaches to the north of the island have decent road links.
Leros has a good supply of hotels, rooms and apartments right across the island and visitors should be able to find a room at any time of the year.
