Petra Holidays

Located to the north-west of Lesbos, Petra is a picturesque town that, despite its popularity, has retains its traditional Greek charm.

A mix of traditional craft shops and boutiques, international restaurants and typical café bars make Petra a charming destination. The town, spreading out behind the beach, has been almost completely pedestrianized. While the sea-front is lined with restaurants and cafes, the interior offers a taste of authentic Greece. A jumble of narrow streets and traditional tavernas, the town centres on a mountainous rock. 114 rock-hewn steps lead to the top, which boasts spectacular views all the way across the ocean to Asia Minor and an 18th century church, Our Lady of the Sweet Kiss (Panagia Glykofiloussa).

The surrounding landscape, a mix of olive groves, pine forests and fruit orchards, traditional villages and modern resorts, is well worth exploring. The small village of Anaxos is only 5 minutes away, or, for those seeking to escape the crowds, you can hire scooters or motorbikes to explore the hidden coves and secluded beaches along the coastline.
