Lesbos (sometimes the island is also referred to as Mytilini after its major city) is located in the northeastern Aegean Sea and is the third largest Greek island and the largest of the numerous Greek islands scattered in the Aegean.
One meaning of the word lesbian derives from the poems of Sappho, who was born in Lesbos and who wrote with powerful emotional content directed toward other women. It is due to this association that Lesbos and especially the town of Eresos, her birthplace, are visited frequently by lesbian tourists. (more info on web page lesbian friendly Lesbos) .

But as the name implies, this is the island where lesbians from all over the world will meet.
(Reservation for July & August are a must!) Sappho was born near Eressos which still attracts most Greek and foreign visitors, on it's long sandy beach at Skala Eressos nude sunbathing is permitted. The island has many beautiful villages and places of interest like Molivos Village, Petra etc..(we recommend hotels such as the Sunrise, Delfinia, Olive Press , Heliotrope at Vigla Beach, Laureate & Pyrgos Mitilini.)

Worth visiting among other, Kalloni village, a municipality that lies in the west-central part of Lesbos,ιτ is a beautiful natural spot, since it is surrounded by the gulf waters, and supplied by the rich plain of 100 km², through which six rivers flow. There is always enough water from the underground and spring waters for its vineyards and gardens, and surrounded by historic monasteries. Kalloni was always the crossroad where the main roads passed. This has not changed much from ancient times. In the last decade, this large village has developed in the field of trade and is the seat of the municipality that comprises the settlements of Agra, Anemotia, Dafia.
