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!
The beach at Petra spans for miles, equipped with sunbeds, beach bars and seasonal tavernas. Petra is easily accessible and is safe for casual swimmers and snorkelers. Visitors can take to the water for boat trips out to the islands in the bay or laze the day away while being waited on at the beach bars. By Petra beach there are plenty of bars where you can enjoy a sun-down cocktail!
