Tarti Beach is for many (including local Greeks) the most beautiful beach on Lesvos. The lovely sandy bay has crystal clear water and is located at the foot of a verdant hill on the south coast, close the Gulf of Gera. On the beach there are sunbeds and umbrellas for taverna users and a few tamarisk trees provide some shade.
At Tarti Beach there is some accommodation available and tavernas serving fresh fish and tasty, homemade food. Colourful fishing boats - sometimes an elegant yacht or two - swaying on the turquoise water complete the almost perfect idyll. Tarti is still unknown to many people and is rarely crowded, even in the summer period.
