Petra Holidays 2021

Set around a turquoise bay on Lesbos’ northern coast is the traditional fishing village of Petra. Here there’s a Blue Flag-awarded beach, which backs into a historic village populated by cobblestone streets and terracotta buildings interspersed with local tavernas and markets. Petra is a blissful picture-perfect Greek island in a Mamma Mia or Shirley Valentine vein - although many people heading off for their 2021 Greek holiday may plump for the more bustling Molyvos, Petra offers its own unique charms. Despite being within striking distance of Lesbos’ more buzzing facilities, Petra will ensure that visitors can duck the energy-sapping crowds and enjoy some well-earned peace and quiet.

Your guide to Petra Greece holidays

Top attractions

Top attractions

One top Petra landmark is the towering church of Panagia Glykofilousa, which casts a glorious shadow over the village from its rocky outcrop above. A 17th-century Turkish merchant’s abode is discovered within the village below, with Vareltzidaina’s House having been renovated and opened up to the public. Comprising of interesting and dated ornaments from a previous time, some of the artistic decoration that adorns the house is nothing short of stunning in appearance. Other attractions to seek out during a Petra holiday include paying a visit to the Ouzo distillery. Ouzo, of course, is the classic alcoholic drink of Greece and has particularly strong links with Lesbos. Petra’s distillery (one of a few dotted around the island) has been run by a local family since it opened in the 1800s, and they’ll welcome visitors in for a tour.

Beaches

Beaches

One of Petra’s top attractions is the beautiful stretch of beach that fronts the charming village. Albeit a vastly quieter one than others in the area, Petra still reflects the trappings of a modern beach resort (umbrellas, beach chairs, showers and changing rooms). The golden sands and clear shallow waters which lap gently against this shoreline have earned a coveted Blue Flag status, while the backdrop of hills and greenery complete the perfect holiday picture.

If you do fancy checking out other beaches in the area, take a trip in a southerly direction down this popular stretch of Aegean Sea coast to the tiny village of Anaxos. Here you’ll find another resort-style beach with even more attractive restaurants and bars. For an extra peaceful experience, seek out the small beach at Avlaki.
