Myrina is the capital and main port of the island. This beautiful little town stretches around two picturesque bays, between which stands the imposing Venetian castle at the top of a rocky hill. Along the waterfront, there is a wide range of cafés, bars, restaurants and traditional taverns, offering top-quality dishes and delicious local delicacies. In the narrow streets and quaint alleys of the town, there are numerous local shops, quaint churches, old neoclassical mansions, traditional houses and wonderful Ottoman fountains. The prehistoric settlement of Myrina as well as the Archaeological Museum are certainly two of the most impressive sights of Myrina. There is also a beautiful sandy beach, called “Riha Nera”, which is ideal for relaxation and swimming in the crystal-clear sea, while admiring the stunning view of the castle.
