Lesvos (or Mytilini) – An amazing islandLesvos has something for everyone. It’s a large diversified island.
Lesvos Island has been truly gifted with truly amazing beaches some of which are very small and secluded to the extent that they have to be rediscovered again and again. It has also been granted an amazing variety of geological wonders to marvel at: the Petrified Forest, the hot springs situated around the island and the flora and fauna fossils found recently.
For those who enjoy nature, Lesvos has many protected wildlife reserves and ecosystems conveniently found around the island.
Lesvos is an important pit stop for migratory birds travelling from Africa on their way to Europe, including Flamingos. Lesvos is also home to a number of plants and flowers of incredible beauty.
Its waters are crystal clear and the beach is awarded the blue flag of Europe every year.
