Lesvos (Lesbos) is an island of contrasts from its enchanting shores, variety of landscapes and wealth of
natural spring water. It has a wild beauty you will not find elsewhere. It's an island of surprise just waiting to be explored.
Lesvos is the third largest island of Greece
(area of 1630 square km and a coastline of 370 km), it is
almost triangular in shape and is penetrated by two deep gulfs
each with a narrow mouth, both exiting the Aegean sea.
Mountains dominate the island, Olympus, near Agiassos, which
is a much smaller cousin of the home of the gods on the
mainland, and Lepetimnos in the north both rise to a height of
about 3,175 ft (968m).
The warm climate, the rich soil and the
plentiful waters have created the lush green Lesvos that the
visitor enjoys today. The island, is like no other, virtually
unaffected by the mass tourism, Lesvos is the perfect place to
visit for people who want to experience the real Greece.
Therapeutic springs are scattered throughout
the island, located at very beautiful coastal and all green
places, making Lesvos one of the most beautiful therapy places
of the Mediterranean. Today in Agiassos, Lisvori, Thermi,
Loutra, Eftalou and Argenos many mineral water springs are
available for public use. (more)

olive trees cover the island. The natural surroundings,
attract migrant birds making Lesvos a bird watchers paradise.
The island is also a good reception for walkers who like to
trek through the scenic, rural landscape with its feast of
