There are several beaches in Lin, with sand and little pebbles and with very clear water. A nice place for picnics and BBQs could be the place called “Mulliri i Vjeter”, with fresh springs and trees , where the little Koran fish are growing, to later be put into the Lake Ohrid. Here, in Lin you can visit 8 rare mosaics dating from the VI -VII century .
