Luxurious Lesbos Holidays
Located on the third largest island in Greece, Lesbos is a sun-kissed haven. Home to a glittering stretch of sandy coastline, rolling hills of lush olive groves and charming villages, this island is ideal whether you’re looking for fun in the sun, lots of action and adventure or a taste of true Greek life; look no further than lush Lesbos holidays.
From the island’s dramatic fossilised forest to its cooling springs, those who think the beach is the only source of entertainment in Lesbos are wrong. There are fantastic mountain trek trails, a scattering of rambling ruins and mesmerising diving spots to discover. Kick back and relax in the hideaway Pessa Springs, seek out the Waterfall of Klapados or tuck into some top-notch cuisine in one of the local eateries.
Things to do in Lesbos
Whether you’re a culture vulture or a history buff, you’ll find plenty of things to do in Lesbos.
The Molyvos Castle is one of the top Lesbos attractions and is a huge draw to the Molyvos area. Explore its ancient insides, sit back and take in the views from the café and if you’re lucky, you may be able to see a summer concert here. Head there early in the morning to avoid the midday heat, or time your visit as the sun goes down and enjoy spectacular views of the sunset!
With a plethora of serene spots on its doorstep, kicking back and relaxing in Lesbos couldn’t be easier. Settle in along the coastline for plenty of sun, sea and a plethora of water sports or head inland to one of the natural hot springs for some time away from the hustle and bustle of the beach.
Whether you’re looking for a serene seaside stay or a chance to revel in the heart of the island countryside, Lesbos holidays have a plenty of accommodation to offer. There’s also the bustling island capital. Mytilene is perfect for those who are looking for city action and easy access to the island airport.
If you’re looking to make the most out of what the Lesbos has to offer, staying in the northwest area of Molyvos is a great option. Close to lots of the fascinating cultural landmarks as well as the gorgeous natural hot springs, you can enjoy a holiday to Lesbos at your own pace.
Turn Up the Heat
Blessed with a fantastically warm Mediterranean climate, the sun shines a lot on a Lesbos holiday. Kids will love making a splash in the warm Aegean Sea while older ones will enjoy chilling in the natural hot springs. Those who want to soak up the local way of life will revel in the vibrant towns here; visit Mytilene for fantastic restaurants and markets or head to Molyvos for gorgeous island views and a chance to discover the Molyvos Castle.
If there’s one thing that Lesbos provides in spades, it’s fantastic Greek cuisine. From fresh local produce to tasty seafood dishes, Lesbos holidays are a foodie’s paradise. Take a seat in none of the beach front restaurants for freshly caught fish, or head into town and enjoy the signature favourites, including indulgent traditional Greek salad, succulent cuts of meat and tasty baked aubergines.
