Alinda lies about 2 kilometres from Agia Marina. To walk to Alinda along the coat is very pleasant. Along the way you pass some beaches, large and small. The most popular one is located in the small settlement of Krithoni. Leros War Cemetery lies just before Alinda.

Alinda is the largest and the most popular tourist resort on Leros. The major attraction is the long pea-gravel beach. The beach is narrow and extends along the beautiful bay. Tamarisk trees grows along most of the shore and gives a much needed shade. This is a beach to my taste, especially because of the wonderful views of Agia Marina and Platanos, and there is plenty of space, except during high season when Alinda is invaded by vacationing Greeks.

A small marina with wooden jetties lies where the beach ends. Here lies Taverna To Steki. One year we chose to stay in Alinda instead of in Panteli. We stayed there for one week and ate at To Steki every night. On each occasion we were surprised that the food tasted better than the night before. Moreover, we found dishes on the menu that we had never eaten in Greece. The owner is super friendly, as well as the staff. A few nights a week there is live music and dancing at the taverna.

Since Alinda is the main tourist resort on Leros
, you will find the biggest range of hotels and pensions here. We have, as I said, stayed in Alinda once, and we liked it a lot.

We stayed at Effie's Apartments and I can really recommend it. Other good hotels are Studios Papafotis, Hotel Marilen, Boulafendis Hotel and Nefeli Hotel in Krithoni not far from Alinda.

Here you can see the beach of Alinda. Approximately in the middle of the picture is Taverna To Steki. The beach road is lined with hotels, pensions, tavernas, cafes, bars, shops, and car and scooter rental places. There is also a nice museum - Historic and Folkloric Museum - housed in a castle named Belenis tower. The museum is open daily (except Mondays) 09.00-13.00 och 19.00-21.00.
