So relaxing

The beach nearest Aegeon Hotel is very natural with small trees and bushes and the locals tend to go there in the evening to swim and have BBQs and picnics. As you wander further... read more

In May 2016 we had the beach to our selves, great for safe swimming, sunbathing, stroll on the beach, read a book, perfect peaceful place for a holiday.

This island has had to endure so much hardship over last two years, with tourist bookings down 70%, I feel I owe them, for many a fantastic holiday I've had there. I love Lesvos, especially the little resort of Skala Kallonis. I'm so looking forward to my visit in May this year. A whole week of sunny weather, birdwatching, country... More

The water is quite shallow but can have sea grass/seaweed in places. You can walk in either direction from Skala Kalloni and if you walk towards where the sea goes inland keep your eyes open for a couple of dolphins that had come into the Gulf of Kalloni.

There are some really good restaurants in Skala Kaloni...but I think the best is Dionysos...where the waiter remembers which dishes you particularly enjoyed on your last visit...even if it was six months or a year ago....The fish is very fresh...chips excellent...and the Tarama Salad so good...

A large sandy beach with us beds to hire at reasonable rates and bars close by. Restaurants with excellent food choices and hospitality where ever you choose to go.

Very sheltered bay so the sea is very calm and the water is very shallow. On the downside, the water could be cleaner, the sand as well (cigarette butts etc). Parking next to the beach. Fairly large playground on the other side of the road.

The beach in Skala Kallonis is good, the place is very nice to swim. But the area around the harbour is a great garbage belt, with al lot of filth in the water. What a shame for such a beautiful Island.

Excellent sandy beach. A must see at Lesbos. Ideal for kids. Many restaurants to choose. Free chairs and umbrellas if you buy something from the cafe or restaurant above.

This is a delightful spot for a day out. The sea, being a large bay, is safe. Shallow for miles, and sand unlike many other places in Lesbos. There are plenty of good restaurants for lunch and dinner, and a few interesting shops if you venture into the back streets behind the square. It's a place that grows on you.... More
