Top attractions

Top attractions

Lesbos has a wide selection of attractions, including areas of natural beauty, historic attractions and monuments and museums. The scenic village of Molyvos is often touted as being the most beautiful on the island, so it’s well worth spending a day or two here exploring the cobbled streets. One of the largest castles in the Mediterranean, Mytilene Castle dates back to the 5th and 6th centuries and occupies an enviable position on a hilltop. Bird lovers will delight in a visit to Kallini Salt Pans, where you can spot avocets, terns, egrets and black and white storks. If you’re a big bird buff and can visit during the migratory season, you’ll get to enjoy watching the birds head to the wetlands in many thousands. If you can’t, don’t worry as there are many birds to see throughout the year. The main attraction of the salt flats is the bright pink flamingos, a memorable experience whether you’re a birdwatching enthusiast or not.

Beaches

Beaches

One of the undoubted jewels in the crown of the island of Lesbos is the selection of beaches. The most beautiful of these beaches includes Eresos, an expanse of clean sand that stretches for 2.5 kilometres, with clear blue waters. Eresos is a Blue Flag beach thanks to its exceptionally clean sea waters and pristine sands, and is one of the most popular beaches with visitors.

Skala Kalloni is also something exceptional. Well served by the town and close to the infamous Kalloni Salt Pans, the beach itself is sandy and well serviced by a delightful cafe and free sunbeds. The water is shallow and warm making it the ideal place to swim or for children to splash around in safety.

Other beaches that are worth a visit are Vatera, which is 9 kilometres long, the largest beach on the island. With its beautiful deep azure waters and soft sand, Vatera is an impressive sight at all times of year. Something of a well-kept secret, the beach at Saint Hermogenes is small but stunning and surrounded by verdant pine trees. Another breath-taking beach is Saint Idisore, situated 2 kilometres from the heart of Plomari. This beach was awarded the seventh best beach in Greece and has a great set of amenities. If you’re looking for a place to have a quiet swim or take a romantic stroll away from the crowds, head to the pebbled beach of Melinda.
