Lesbos is the third largest of the Greek islands and one of the most popular tourist destinations in Greece. Despite its well-traveled terrains, Lesbos (also spelled Lesvos) remains a natural beauty among the Greek resorts. Its location in Greece, but close to the Turkish coast, is convenient for travelers booking flights to Lesbos from various parts of Europe.
Originally a small fishing village, Lesbos has maintained its quaint civility while boasting its gold beaches, olive trees and miles of breathtaking coastline. Lesbos is a top resort destination for lesbian tourists thanks to the poet Sappho, who was born in the Lesbos town of Eresos and whose poems are interpreted as powerful, emotional and directed toward women. Take a break from the beach and spend a day watching wildlife or exploring the island’s many archaeological findings. Lesbos’ history dates back to before the 6th century BC and the island still has many stories to tell. Listen carefully and you just might hear the words of legendary poets Sappho and Alcaeus recited in the waves of this magnificent Greek isle
