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!
Turquoise Tarti beach, close to the opening of the Gulf of Gera, is an unmissable beach destination. With its white sand, crystal clear waters, beautiful view of the southern Aegean and great beach bars playing chilled-out beats all summer-long, what more could you want? Make a beach bar your base on Tarti as you top off a strong dose of beach fun with cocktails, food and friendly local banter served right to your sun-bed!
After a day at Tarti, get away from the beach crowds and catch the sunset at any point in the semi-closed gulf of Gera where the sea is so calm that it perfectly reflects the colors of the sky – witness this from a cafe at Perama village where beautiful old factories provide the backdrop to a view of the shoreline or have a baklava and greek coffee from the heights of Agios Isidoros!
