Aegean islands ● Lesvos ● 06 September 2017

Lesvos is not only the island that the whole world admired for its hospitality during the refugees crisis. Lesvos is something more and unique. This stunning island of Aegean Sea in a very close distance to Turkey has not only kept its special, Greek character, but also managed to turn its authenticity into a wonderful combination of traditional villages, unspoiled beaches and really nice people, who smile in spite of their difficulties. Furthermore, Lesvos is an island with astonishing natural beauty, which is combined with rare phenomena, such as its natural springs.

Lesvos is a volcanic island, enriched with hot springs. Thus, it is considered as one of the best destinations in the Mediterranean Sea for health tourism. If you want to live the unforgettable experience of natural spa, to relax in an amazing scenery and enjoy the beauty of a charming island, Lesvos is your place!

The hot springs of Eftalou is situated in a unique location next to a calm beach, with pebbles shaped by air and volcanic lava. According to the New York Times, Eftalou springs are ranked among the finest on-the-water destinations due to the therapeutic properties of its waters, which are rich in radium, chloride, sodium and other minerals with healing properties.
