What to do in Eresos

Eresos is the place to relax on the beach, have a cocktail and enjoy the moment. But it is also the birth place of the great poet Sapho and the naturalist Theophrastus. There is great history to be found around here. Learn about Sapho’s life and Theophrastus findings, visit the ancient town of Antissa, the Ypsilou Monastery and of course the Petrified Museum in Sigri. Attend a women’s festival, go to the beautiful sandy beaches of Chrousos and Podaras and the pebbled beach of Faneromeni with its clear blue waters. Visit Iakovidis Digital Museum in Hidira, beautiful villages like Kalo Limani, Antissa, Mesotopos and the traditional settlement of Vatousa. Take some walking trails around the area and breathe in Lesvos.
