Despite the size and diversity of Lesvos,
with a few exceptions most holiday developments for overseas visitors are concentrated in
a ten-kilometre north-west-facing strip along the north coast of the island between Molivos and Anaxos,
backed by the Lepetymnos mountains.

Although originally this came about for historical reasons, it has been perpetuated by package holiday operators
from northern Europe largely for their own operational convenience.

See 'On Foot in North Lesvos' for 25 walks in this region.
