We begin this hike in Skala Loutron at the Gulf of Gera. This area is hardly touched by tourism; you will see secluded bays, beautiful little churches and traditional small tavernas. The track leads us along the quiet waters of the Gulf through olive groves and pine forests to one of the most stunning beaches on Lesvos: Agios Ermogenis. This little bay has two beaches, a slightly larger pebble beach and a small sandy beach. After the first part of the hike we take some time for an extended sunbathe or a swim in the clear water. Later we enjoy a delicious lunch in the summer taverna on the beach. Feeling stronger after the delicious meal we hike over small paths back to Skala Loutron.
Here we sit down for a coffee or ouzo in one of the taverns at the harbour and watch the world go by.
