Molyvos Lesvos Greece Best To Do in 2021

One of the well-known villages of Lesvos is Molyvos. Read our complete travel guide for all the things to do in Lesvos Greece.

Molyvos, Lesvos, is a stone-built village with a fort on the top is famous for its food, promenade areas, and splendid view of the Aegean.

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

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 in Lesvos, 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.

Where to Eat in Molyvos Lesvos 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.

We experienced Lesvos (Molyvos too) was that the locals tastefully cook food while using fresh ingredients.

Good quality ingredients leave you without a heavy stomach. It is essential 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.

Have fun!
