Alinda is an impressive tourist resort 3km from Platanos, the capital of Leros. This lovely village lies around the natural bay of Agia Marina. The area is very rich in vegetation, full of pine trees and olive grove forests. There are now many hotels and tourists arrive more and more. Some of the most important religious sightseeings in Alinda is the Monastery of Agios Sofronios and the church of Agios Saranta. Also close to the beautiful church of Agios Isidoros which stands on a rock are some remains of stone buildings from antiquity. Very close to Alinda are the idyllic beaches of Panagies and Lisgaria and numerous coves well-hidden between the rocks.
