Experience the Best of Molyvos: Activities, Cuisine, and Accommodations

Experience the Best of Molyvos: Activities, Cuisine, and Accommodations

  • Stroll through its cobblestone streets, discovering quaint shops and cafes. In spring they are beautifully shaded by rivers of blooming, lilac wisteria. In fact, in 2015 Molyvos’ main shopping street was voted “Prettiest Street in the World”.
  • Admire Molyvos historical sites. The Molyvos Castle history will offer a journey back in time. You can also visit the museum to the Ottoman baths which have been sympathetically renovated to give an insight into how they would have been in the past.
  • Rent your own boat or book a boat trip from Petra and Molyvos harbours. Contact Real Lesvos for advice, times, prices and to book in advance for the best deals.
  • Experience Molyvos nightlife and bars. The nightlife options range from cosy tavernas serving local ouzo to a small selection of more lively bars and clubs where you can dance the night away.
  • Relax on Molyvos beach or Eftalou Beach - which is just 5 minutes from Molyvos and a must-visit for a unique blend of relaxation and natural therapy. Currently under renovation, Eftalou is also home to an ancient natural thermal spring.
  • Immerse yourself in Molyvos cultural festivals and events, from summer music festivals to yoga and wellness festivals, and other traditional celebrations. In summer there are world famous guitar and classical music festivals visiting Molyvos.
  • Eat Greek cuisine - Molyvos is an excellent place to explore the wonders of Greek food, with a huge selection of traditional tavernas.
  • Cycle - there are wonderful biking routes and trails (both on- and off-road) in the Molyvos area.  In addition, the Molyvos Urban MTB race visits the village in autumn, attracting both professional and amateur mountain bike riders. 
  • Board the picturesque land train from Molyvos that gives you a tour of the village and continues on to take passengers to the surrounding villages of Petra and Anaxos.
