Why go to Lesbos

Book holidays in Lesbos to explore what feels like the final frontier of Greece - a slow-paced island where olives grow, fishermen haul in the catch of the day, bird song fills the air, and farming - not tourism – forms the backbone of the economy.

Lesbos holidays are a breath of fresh air for visitors seeking something a bit different from their sunshine break.

Lesbos (also spelled Lesvos) is one of the biggest Greek islands. It is popular with tourists, but as much of the land is given over to thick forests, barren plains and salt marshes, it hasn't become over-populated by tourist resorts. The ones that do exist are quiet and welcoming, with everything required of a peaceful break in the sun. This is the sort of island where long days are spent dozing under the glorious Greek rays and where evenings are topped off with a serene nightcap under the stars instead of a heart-thumping dance session in a nightclub.

So, sit back, relax, and let us take you on a short journey around the highlights of the island before you begin your search for a great-value Lesbos holiday with TravelSupermarket.

The ancient city of Mytilene, home of the island's airport, is a superb place to stay. However, most visitors head to the coastal resorts of Molivos/Molyvos, Eresos, Skala Eressos/Eresou, Anaxos and Petra. Whichever one you choose, beaches, culture, history and exquisite cuisine will combine to create an unforgettable holiday in the sun.

Birdwatchers also love Lesbos. The start of the holiday season brings droves of twitchers to areas such as Skala Kalloni, where they can spot flamingo, herons, owls and falcons, among others.

If you were hoping to go all-inclusive, Lesbos has just a few hotels that offer the all-in experience, so it pays to book well in advance to secure your room. Much more popular are self-catering apartments and hotels that offer accommodation on a bed-and-breakfast or half-board basis. When you peruse the menus at the local tavernas though, you won't mind at all that your hotel doesn't serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, as your mouth will water at the delectable fresh prawns, local cheeses and zingy salads on offer.

Has that whet your appetite? Then you will be glad to know that finding cheap holidays to Lesbos is easy with TravelSupermarket. Simply use our search tool to tell us when you want to go and we will show you a range of low-cost deals. All you have to do is choose and book!

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
