About Lesbos All Locations - presentation, information, photos and recommendations
The unique unspoiled beauty of Lesvos (Lesbos) is an astonishing contrast to lush splendour of the rest of the cosmopolitan islands with its mysterious forests, dramatic coastline, tranquil sunsets and rugged mountains.
A wealth of opportunities allows every visitor to pursue particular interests from sporting and adventure activities to cultural and leisure attractions. The mild Mediterranean climate, warm hospitality and friendliness of the people make your holidays to Lesvos island an unforgettable experience...
There are numerous sand and pebble beaches and many sheltered and isolated coves dotted along the spectacular indented coastline. The temperate climate, inland rivers and natural springs all contribute to maintain the surprisingly lush vegetation of the island.
Located on the Northern tip, Mytilene is the largest town on the island, the capital of Lesvos and host to the Airport and commercial Seaport. The town is located approx. 5km from the airport and if arriving by plane, you should consider taking one of the many taxis waiting outside. You will find car and bike hire agencies near the sea port (or try our LINK at left) and the main bus depot close by where you will find details of routes servicing the whole island.
Going further up north by the east coast, thru a series of beautiful little villages one will arrive in the town of Mantamados, famous for its cheeses and the fine pottery. The next stop will be Skala Sikaminias, one of the most charming fishing villages one would ever see.
And then, at the northest point of the island one will find the picturesque village of Mithymna (also known as Molivos), with its mediaeval castle and the traditional architecture. Molivos is also the islands best known resort. By some it has been called "the closed place to paradise, on earth".
Finally, not far from Sigri, one will find the town of Eressos. Eressos has been the birth place of Sappho and Theoprastos. Its port, Skala Eressos, is a famous resort with a magnificent beach.
Whether traveling by bus, taxi, hire car, bike or scooter, the scenery will unfold itself around you throughout your journey.
Huge lagoons of water and strips of beach will appear shimmering below and then beside as you bend toward your chosen destination. Small churches, road-side shrines and even whole villages seem to playfully hide from view until you are almost upon them.
