Have you considered different resorts around Lesvos.

If you have never been to the island before you may not know how the island varies in landscape and culture.

It is the third largest island in Greece, with a great deal to see. I have lived here 11 years and am still exploring.

It is not possible to see everything in in one shot holiday.

I have to agree, far too much to see on Lesvos to worry about going to other islands, it feels like several islands in one as you travel around anyway. Olive groves, pine forest, the barren landscape of the west, all completely different.

Take a look at some pics from our far too short stay on Lesvos a few months ago,

Have to agree with posts above. Far too many places to explore & variety of things to do on Lesvos to have the time to go elsewhere! Next year will be our fifth visit & we still have not been everywhere on my "must do" list! It is always a headache working out yet again what to leave till NEXT time!

Are you going for one week or two? As suggested above if you stay in different places, eg Petra, Mytilini & Plomari you will think you have seen at least three different islands, but without the travelling. You can take a day trip across to Turkey from Mytilini; anywhere else is really quite some distance & will eat up time. For a trip to Greek mainland I think you would be looking at a 7 hour overnight ferry. Hardly worth it unless you enjoy transit ferries!

WEVE been to Thassos 3 times and you can get ferry back to the mainland and visit Kalva and the old town or Thomsons did a tour to the mainland.

we caught ferry over to mainland from Scala prinos and had a great day walking up to old town
