Molyvos Lesvos Greece, Don’t Leave Without Exploring & Eating

One of the well-known villages of Lesvos is Molyvos.

Read our complete travel guide for all the things to do in Lesvos Greece.

A build-with-stone village with a fort on the top is famous for its food, promenade areas and splendid view to the Aegean.

We stayed at a very nice seaside hotel, name Delfinia Hotel & Bungalows, around 4 minutes by Molyvos.

The hotel is huge and covers a very large area, extending down to the beach.

It also has a great pool with a great view of Molyvos, plus some pretty nice basketball courts.

This hotel is cleverly located just outside Molyvos, so you can avoid any “touristic” fuzz from the village.

Yet, before even arriving at Molyvos you will have the opportunity to pass by the Pink Flamingos of Lesvos.

This is a rather famous location for bird watchers from all over the world.

They literally “flock” into this area to observe these magnificent birds.

At the top of Molyvos is the old Byzantine Castle (Fortress of Mythimna), offering a pretty nice view of the village and towards the open sea.

Where to Eat in Molyvos Village

When you get hungry do not leave Molyvos without trying its cuisine.

We suggest “Mpampoukos” since we ate there and we can tell.

Lesvos is famous for its top quality food and “Mpampoukos” follows along.

We had quite a series of dishes, along with the must-have Ouzo, and the owner of “Mampoukos” was insisting that we should try more.

The food -as in all Lesvos- was delicious and perfectly cooked.

What we experienced all around Lesvos (Molyvos too) was that the locals cook food in a tasteful way while using fresh ingredients.

Good quality of ingredients leaves you without a heavy stomach. It is very important for us as we travel a lot and we compare such things.

In total there are lots of taverns in Molyvos and some pretty nice beaches for swimming.

Apart from a good exercise, the people who provide such will make sure that you discover the beauties of this island while you do them.

Have fun!
