Lakki Marina in Leros or Leros Marina as it is often referred to was established in 1989, when the rocky land overlooking the beautiful Lakki harbor was acquired. Lakki was used by the Italians as a naval station and aeronautics base for the whole of the Eastern Mediterranean during the Italian possession of the Dodecanese Islands from 1913 to 1943. The area that was selected is found in the north-eastern part and at the right end of Lakki Bay, -37° 12′ north and 26° 51′ east –, at the precise point where the Italians moored their hydroplanes.

Boats arriving at Lakki Marina can now enjoy the beauties of the sea and the environment of the Island of Leros and surrounding areas.
