Mini-Market Dania, Plati beach, Lemnos


During our four holidays at the Mark Warner Lemnos resort in 2014-2016 we walked several times to Plati village square and to the church and to the end of the headland and to Myrina town.

On these walks we along the length of Plati beach road, from the Lemnos Village Resort and passed the Dania Mini Market, where it was possible to buy ice creams, crisps and chocolate, water etc. These pictures were taken during our  week holiday, 4-11 September 2016.

In Sept 2020 we noted that the hand made blue Dania Mini Market shop sign had disappeared and that the stock was minimal suggesting that it was about to close down. If so, it is sad as this was a handy local shop.
