Long desert beach very close to salt plans. Nothing special, neither from the landscape standpoint. The Paradise bar is good to eat and drink

Don't be put off my the migrant situation in the med. Lesvos is one of the most beautiful Greek Islands and if you want traditional and friendly then this is the place. I've been 23 times in the last 25 years in April for the Birdwatching - need I say more. I'm off again on 14th April for 3 weeks can't wait.

Very hard on your feet and full of weed, also a toilet for dogs and cats which we saw them doing thier business on the beach next to the sun beds and tavernas. The square in Skala Kallonis was shut of to cars at night but mopeds were in abundance and were flying into the square which was a danger to all. Local kids on thier bikes were also a problem on baby was sent flying by one of the bigger lads on the bikes and he just carried on laughing. So close monitoring of children in your care is a must. The local children were a nuisance they were playing with a bottle of water which they pumped air Ito it, which launched into the air and came crashing down, very dangerouse if it hit something or someone. But they were running wild a bit off putting when old people and youngster can move out of thier way.

Everywhere in the volcanic island of Lesbos, you can find great stones on the shore.Many colours, spectacular forms...But in the wonderful bay of Kalloni, mostly in Skala Kallonis, you can also find incredible shells (some of them seem to be millions of years old, as they are petrified, but i am no expert in that area) and an unbelievable marine fauna. I recommend snorkeling everywhere in Lesbos, but if you want to see the Aegean marine fauna, i'd go to the gulf of Kalloni. It's a quiet place, gives you the sensation of looking at a peaceful mountain lake, howeaver it is unmisteakably the Aegean sea.You can smell it and feel it. Like everywhere else in Greece, the water is clear and hot, and it is very suitable for kids too, as the water is not deep for quite a distance. Apart of Skala Kallonis, there are a lot of places to visit alongside the gulf, from ancient ruins to the absolute kingdom of the birdwatchers, as the gulf of Kalloni is the place where most of the African birds, such as the pink flamingos set their colony during april and may. Did i mention the spectacular views that you have pretty much from every point of the gulf of Kalloni? As a photographer, i tell you, it's worth taking the trip.
