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 with spectacular beaches, high mountains and wild forests.
Lesvos has some of the most scenic views and picturesque sights out of all the Greek islands. The landscape varies from arid to verdant lush forests with blue skies and even bluer seas. It is a popular destination for nature lovers as it is a paradise for birdwatchers with lots of rare species and even pink flamingos!
Much of Lesvos food is farm to fork and you can eat local food in most of the family-run restaurants who will tell you where the produce you are eating comes from!
Here at Real Lesvos we aim to give our customers an authentic Greek island experience. In the map below you'll find an ever-increasing list of our favourite things to do and see on Lesvos!
