When is the best time to visit Limnos?
There is no doubt that Lemnos is a wonderful holiday destination for all seasons! Depending on your interests, you will find a wide range of activities and things to do on this beautiful island all year round.
Spring is the season that turns the barren volcanic landscape of the island into a unique verdant scenery, full of colorful wildflowers and small green bushes. Hiking along its numerous paths, visiting its quaint villages and going for an early swim in the crystal-clear sea are only some of the things you can do on the island during the spring.
Summer is the season that the island becomes more vibrant and crowded than any other time of year! Numerous people visit it so as to enjoy the sunny weather, explore its stunning beaches, go kite surfing and experience Lemnian hospitality. Several festivities and cultural events usually take place on the island during the summer season, promising to take your vacation up a notch.
Temperatures continue to be mild and pleasant until early October in Lemnos, which means that visitors are able to enjoy the same activities as in the summer months – minus the crowds. One can also visit the wetlands of Asprolimni and Hortarolimni and the wetland of Alyki, the biggest natural salt lake in Greece, which host many migratory rare bird species.
The winter months are Lemnos’ low tourist season so various businesses, hotels and restaurants might be closed during this time of the year. However, if you are a nature lover and you enjoy the peace and quiet, you should definitely visit Lemnos off-season so as to admire its wild natural beauty and enjoy the scenic serenity, while hearing the lapping sea waves.
