At the Gulf of Gera, close to the mouth and the open sea, you can find some amazing, tranquil beaches, ideal for a swim or a picnic. We start our hike in Avlonas at the Gulf of Gera und follow the track up and down through lovely, old olive groves. Soon we reach Fteli Beach and may already fancy a swim in the clear water. Feeling refreshed we continue our walk through the olive fields – in spring and early summer full of flowers and even rare and beautiful orchids – to the beach of Katsinia with its small fishermen’s houses and colourful boats. After a break at the beach we turn inland and finally arrive at our starting point Avlonas.
In Avlonas you find one of the best tavernas on Lesvos.
We sit down in the shade of huge plane trees and enjoy the delightful cuisine of Kostas and his wife.
