There's a reason we've been coming here for 20 years
Sitting in the sparkling turquoise Aegean Sea, Lesvos is a warm and sunny emerald gem of Greece. It is a whole continent in miniature: spectacular beaches, high mountains and wild forests on Greece's third largest island.
Due to the island's size and variety, there's something for everyone: beach holidays, activity holidays, gastronomic tours, nature attractions and spectacular geography.
Here at Real Lesvos we aim to gradually make the wonder and attractions of Lesvos more easily available to the UK traveller. In the map below you'll find an ever-increasing list of our favourite things to do and see on Lesvos!
Anaxos has an intimate ambiance and is an easily accessible sandy beach town, with various forms of accommodation from resorts to pensions. Dip your toes in the water as you eat at a wide range of tavernas on the beach! Adventure up through town to find more restaurants, cafes, music bars and boutiques on the main road through the village. Anaxos is a popular weekend destination with local islanders looking for a relaxing day out and the cooling breeze makes it a great place for kite-flying. If you want to explore this bit of coast line further, rent a motorcycle from any of the rent-a-motos in this bustling seaside town. If you’re visiting Lesvos around the 27th of July, Anaxos hosts the annual feast celebrating Saint Panteleimon that lasts a few days so don’t forget to drop by and join in the song and dance!
