THE ORIGIN OF THE NAME
There are two options regarding the origin of Limnonaris’ name.
The first has to do with mythology and the astonishing ancient Greek culture. So, according to the old legend, the God Ares (he was the Greek god of war) gave the name to the beach because he was fascinated by its beauty. “Limni” in Greek stands for the lake. So Limnonari stands for the lake of Ares.
The second version has to do more with the morphology of the gulf. The bay is closed and very well protected from all winds, especially from the north ones.
Due to that, the water remains always calm as it was in a lake. Limnonari in Greek means the small lake and that is the best description for this tranquil beach.
No matter the origin of the name you will absolutely fall in love with the beauty of Limnonari beach with the magical combination of green nature and crystal clear waters.
Limnonari Beach is most of a sandy beach totally protected by green hills. The beach has fine sand that turns golden by the reflection of the sun. The pine trees and the green surroundings in combination with the white sand make the already gorgeous scenery even more impressive.
You should pay attention while entering the sea because there is a slippery underwater rock formation.
Limnonari Beach is organized. So, there are umbrellas, sun loungers, and decks for rent.
THE FANCY SEABED
Limnonari Beach is not popular only due to the crystal clear waters, the white sand, and the protection from the winds, but also because of the slab of calcium that exists in the shallow water. The special characteristic is the plate of calcium that exists at the bottom of the sea. So you should be careful with the sea stones when you enter it. The rocks are mainly at the entrance of Limnonari beach. While you are going deeper they become less and the seabed gets so perfect that you are not sure if you are in the sea or in a pool.
