Sun holidays on Lemnos Island

Lemnos Holidays reflect both the gentle pace of life here, as well as its unspoilt surroundings while being only a 30 minute transfer from the airport. The white buildings, terracotta roofs, groves of shady trees and quiet gardens come together to recreate a real village feel. Lemnos is one of the few Greek Islands that has been relatively untouched by tourists, so this resort is perfect for those keen to experience local traditions and an authentic Greek experience. 

Our Lemnos resort

Visitors to our Lemnos Resort, Lemnos Beach can enjoy relaxing days on the beach or get involved with all the activities in the resort, while admiring the beautiful surroundings. A firm Mark Warner favourite, Lemnos is perfect for families, friends and couples, with great facilities and childcare. Get involved with our programme of on-shore activities including tennis, fitness classes and cycling or head to the waterfront and try your hand at sailing and windsurfing amongst much more. 

Resort guide

Culture & History

Lemnos has a truly rich and exciting history steeped in myths and legends of gods and heroes as well as being an important archaeological site and place of discovery. According to Greek mythology Lemnos is sacred to Hephaestus, the god of fire and volcanoes, who was cast out of Mount Olympus and fell on the island. Myth also says that Lemnos was the home to revengeful Amazonian women who killed their unfaithful husbands. Historically, the ruins of the oldest human settlement can be found on Lemnos about which you can learn more at the Poliochni Archaeological Museum in Myrina.

Local food

The traditions of Lemnos are never so present as in the food. Lemnos is renowned for its delicious fruit, particularly its figs which are said to be exquisite and its grapes, famous for producing the dry white wine called “Moshato”. Cheese is also a local specialty, especially feta cheese and “salamoura” cheese. Sweets and pastries such as halva, a dessert made with syrup nuts and raisins, is also extremely popular. Finally with the harbour so important to life in Lemnos, its fish is of course unparalleled. Lemnos is famous for lobster on coals, octopus in embers and mussels, all freshly caught and traditionally prepared.

Weather

Lemnos’ weather is as attractive as the island’s beautiful landscape. It boasts a dryer climate than other North- Eastern Aegean islands. Lemnos is also known for its strong winds, hence its nickname “the wind ridden one”, the perfect accompaniment to the hot, dry summers. The rest of the year has a relatively mild Mediterranean climate where rainfall is rare, though the occasionally snow fall does occur in winter.
