As one of the many pretty beach resorts on the island of Lesbos, Anaxos can be found in the next bay along from the popular, laidback resort of Petra. Its sandy beach goes on for a mile, with plenty of tavernas and bars fringing the sands for you to while away your time in, sipping an ice cold drink or two.
While it's small, Anaxos is a popular resort on the island that provides the best of both worlds to holidaymakers who are looking for an idyllic spot in which to completely relax. It's likely that the resort will only grow in popularity, so treat yourself to a stay in this area of Greece before it develops too much. The intimacy of Anaxos is endearing, with a tranquil atmosphere that perfect for a relaxing break.
While the beach at Anaxos is a pleasant spot for whiling the hours away, if you want somewhere that's a bit more of a better kept secret, Golden Beach is it. Situated near to the hot springs of Eftalou, you can truly unwind here - you'll almost be able to see your stresses drift into the Aegean Sea.
The Petrified Forest
Home to a huge range of fossilised ancient trees, the Petrified Forest is a great way to experience a different side to Lesbos. You can find this popular attraction near to Sigri and it is sure to be a haunting highlight of any Lesbos break.
Home to hot springs that are said to have healing properties, Eftalou supposedly provides a soothing experience to anyone who spends some time here. The newly renovated bath house merely adds to the already incredibly relaxing and enjoyable experience. Plus, there's a restaurant in the vicinity that would be perfect for a delicious lunch or dinner following your visit.
Watersports on the beach
There are plenty of watersports opportunities across the Lesbos beaches. From canoeing, windsurfing and pedalos, to snorkelling and diving - there'll be a beach on the island that has something to suit, and the beaches and coves that surround Anaxos are no different.
Walk in the Hills
Walking and hiking are a big deal on Lesbos, owing largely to the stunning hillsides and lush countryside that begs to be explored. Scenic and historical walking trails are waiting for you to sink your feet into them, while more inspiring treks are also available for those wanting a little more of a challenge. Alternatively, you could always explore by bike if you don't fancy the walk. Paths pass coves, villages and thermal springs, giving you a perfect way to discover secluded, secret coves that you can call your own for an hour or two. Why not pack a picnic for an al fresco meal to remember?
Watch the World Go By
While there are plenty of opportunities to explore the area, it'd be far easier to just pull up a sunlounger and watch the waves as they lap up on the sandy shores. After all, what else should relaxing summer breaks be about?
This quiet, tranquil and unspoilt resort is within easy reach of its more bustling neighbours and offers holidaymakers a laidback stay on the Lesbos coast.
A little busier than its Anaxos neighbour, Petra is a larger holiday resort that still has a rural feel. Perfect for families and couples looking for an ideal base for their Lesbos package holiday, Petra may be a little less intimate but it still provides plenty of traditional charm.
