Why go to Petra

Book a holiday to Petra, on the slow-paced Greek island of Lesbos, and work your way down the gears as you unwind in the sunshine.

Petra holidays are about relaxing and savouring the unique flavours of Greece.

Petra is located on the northern shores of pretty Lesbos, where life runs at the same pace as the olives grow in the island's bountiful groves. A long beach of golden sand and some shingle stretches in front of traditional tavernas and welcoming bars, while trees and parasols provide spots of shade when the sun beats down.

Those who book a Petra holiday can enjoy the hushed and friendly atmosphere of this traffic-free fishing village, where Greek customs linger and where time-honoured recipes steal hearts in restaurants that take immense pride in the local cuisine.

If you are looking for all-inclusive holidays...

Petra has a small number of hotels that offer the full package. However, most hotels here welcome guests on a self-catering or bed-and-breakfast basis, with a few half-board options too. Don't worry, though: you will quickly fall for the delightful tastes of this resort and be glad to try different restaurants throughout your holiday. Hotels in Petra are of a good standard, with most offering a swimming pool, cafe and bar.

The island of Lesbos, also spelled Lesvos, is one of the largest Greek islands. Its forests and salt marshes have ensured that tourism development has been low key. This equates to holidays that hark back to an era long gone for some of the better-developed islands nearby. Visitors love the traditional and simple pleasures of Lesbos, especially in small resorts such as Petra.

To find cheap holidays to Petra, simply use the TravelSupermarket search tool to compare a selection of package deals - all you have to do is choose! We can also help you to bag a bargain on your holiday extras, such as airport parking, travel insurance, car hire in Lesbos and much more.

*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.
