Why go to Petra

Sunshine, sparkling seas and smoky souvlaki, a Petra holiday is pure balm for the soul. Not to be confused with its ancient Jordanian namesake, this charming fishing village on the Greek island of Lesbos is a picture postcard of whitewashed houses, terracotta roofs and narrow cobbled lanes, and just a stone’s throw from olive groves, lush mountains and beautiful beaches.

Perched on the northern coast of Greece's third largest island, Petra is a haven for holidaymakers looking for a sun-drenched getaway with leisurely morning strolls, relaxed dining and long afternoons spent doing very little. After all, a holiday to Petra is all about taking it easy.

Of course, being set on the northern beaches of Lesbos, Petra will also appeal to families, couples and friends who are keen to spend quality time by the shore – but in a destination that is welcomingly less well known.
