Molyvos

The pretty village of Molyvos or Mithymna lies just over 60 kilometres from the capital of Mytilene on the north coast of Lesvos. Red roofed stone houses tumble down cobblestone lanes to the tiny fishing harbour where traditional tavernas and cafes line the waterfront. On top of the hill the ruins of the splendid Genoese castle look out over the Aegean Sea to the Turkish mainland. The long stretch of pebble beach offers some watersports with a wider choice of sand and shingle beaches nearby.
