Petra

Petra holidays

This teeny village, strung along the north coast of Lesvos, offers a blissful beach break to all that come here. It’s a vision of colour, with terracotta roofs, bright blue shutters and a forest-green mountainous backdrop. That’s not forgetting the aquamarine waters lapping the shore. Meander into Petra’s pedestrianised centre and you’ll find a tangle of narrow cobbled passageways and overhanging trees – worlds apart from postcard Greece, but equally beautiful.

The coast is calling

A long stretch of beach fronts Petra, seducing visitors with its twinkling azure waters and soft sand. Bars and restaurants form its spine, each with their own set of loungers and parasols for lazing in the sunshine. Stick around for sunset, the view is spectacular and made even better with a cocktail or two.

Meander to Molivos

Hop aboard the blue and white tourist train that trundles towards Molivos daily. Enjoy the views along the way as you head up the coast to this centuries-old town that sits pretty on a harbour. It’s worth hiking up to the 14th-century castle overlooking Molivos for sweeping vistas, before heading down to explore the labyrinth-like centre that charms with its cobbled passageways and flower-filled balconies.
