Photographer's Note

The long promenade of Lakki is very low, so it's lined with rocks for the waves to break on, before they reach the road.

The whole town of Lakki lies on flat land which used to be a lagoon surrounded by marshes. The Italian regime, during the possession of the Dodecanese, decided to convert it into a modern town for the administration, officers and civil servants that served in the naval base they constructed on the island, starting in 1912.

The defense provided by the rocks is very feeble when the west wind blows from the opening of the bay straight onto the waterfront.

Thank you for visiting
