Day trip "The south around Plomari"

We start our tour in the mountain region of Mount Olympus. From here we drive on narrow roads through the fascinating mountains - always with stunning views of Mount Olympus and an almost alpine landscape. We pass the picturesque village Ambeliko and continue through Akrasi with its pretty plateia and on passing countless olive groves and deserted hillsides. Finally we arrive in Melinda, a tiny hamlet with perhaps two dozen inhabitants. Here we stop to enjoy the atmosphere and an idyllic break, swimming in crystal clear waters or relaxing on the multi-coloured pebble beach.

We continue to Plomari, for many visitors and lovers of Lesvos one of their favourite spots. We park the car in the harbour and enjoy the magnificent view of Plomari’s houses stretching up the hill in front of us, before a stroll through the charming, little town and the streets behind the splendid harbour.

The most famous local product is the ouzo distilled in Plomari’s renowned distilleries. At the Ouzo Museum you can also enjoy a little ouzo tasting.

In Plomari we can enjoy a tasty lunch at the seaside.

We continue along the Gulf of Gera through traditional villages, ancient olive groves and blooming gardens, always with stunning views to the sea.
