Sail a Boat

The visitors have the opportunity to rent a boat with its skipper and explore the beauties of the Lesvian shoreline. One of the most popular destinations, accessible only by boat are the Tokmakia islets, lying just offshore of Mantamados, less than a mile away. These islets have an exceptional natural beauty with crystal-clear waters and white sand. Another very popular destination is the route along the south part of the island with the tour starting from the port of Plomari, sailing west to Melinda with its landmark enormous rock, which only the bravest dare to climb and dive into the sea and its cozy tavernas. The trip continues onwards to mesmerizing Panagia Kryfti where the landscape is magical and imposing with the little chapel tucked away in a spacious cave and natural hot springs flowing from the steep rocks.

In the summer there are guided sightseeing tours with a special glass-bottom boat so that all young and adults may enjoy the Marine Park of the Nisiopi Petrified Forest. The visitors selecting this particular route experience a unique sensation since they may travel in their imaginations to the geological past of Lesvos and observe the unique fossil sites on the seabed and the unusual geological formations and structures, the evidence of the volatile volcanic eruptions that took place here millions and millions of years ago.
