Petra beach accounts for much of the popularity of the area. One of the most beautiful and best-organized beaches in the entirety of Lesvos, it extends over a distance of three kilometers and includes a good selection of beachside bars, restaurants and tavernas.
Changing cabins and showers are present along the beach, which is considered child-safe.
Come to Petra beach and it is hugely unlikely you will be stuck for things to see and do. Water sports and a volley ball court are available on the shore and Petra beach is dotted with tamarisk trees, which makes it ideal for a family picnic.
If you are in the area, do have a wander around Petra, marvel at the immense rock in its centre, and discover the more intimate side of Petra as you advance towards the centre of town. Take a walk in Petra’s maze of narrow lanes and quaint cobbled streets and gaze at its many traditional houses and neoclassical mansions, or follow a footpath to Petri and savor its mesmerizing views to Molyvos, Petra, the Ligonas valley and Asia Minor.
Whichever way may you decide to spend your stay, do finish your trip with a visit to Petra beach and make the most of the tourist amenities and activities on offer. Even if you settle on simply taking a dip in the refreshingly cool water and sunbathing in the company of a good book, you are certain to enjoy the beautiful scenery and fall for the sound of the waves lapping gently against the shore.
