Skala Polichnitou – comprises just a few houses and tavernas around a beautiful little fishing harbour with a scattering of small dwellings in the streets behind the seafront, some only occupied in the summer months. It is the port of the town of Polichnitos, formerly one of the major ports of the island and trading center for limestone, salt, fish and olive products. Today you find very colorful working fishing boats, landing their catch of the day or the occasional larger fishing boat offloading its catch from the Aegean Sea to be whisked away in refrigerated transport bound for Athens and beyond.

In Skala Polichnitou you can enjoy a good meal or a refreshing drink or sundowner in one of the small fish tavernas, sitting amongst the locals drinking their ouzo or coffee, or playing their beloved game “Tavli”, which is similar to Backgammon.

The Gulf of Kalloni is famous for its sardines, which swim in large schools in the warm and shallow water. You can enjoy them just fried or grilled, marinated with herbs in vinegar or lemon juice, or (a speciality of Lesvos) salted – known as Sardeles Pastes.

You will be offered a wide range of fresh locally caught fish and shellfish according to the season, and of course octopus, kalamari (squid) but also soupies (cuttlefish).

The salt pans to the north of Skala Polichnitos are especially interesting for birdwatchers. The salt pans are still used to harvest and export salt, but they are also home to, or on the migratory route for, many water and wading birds, including flamingoes and black storks, and some quite rare species.

The beach away from the harbour is of dark sand and gravel, not wide but very long. It is perhaps not the perfect sandy beach, but the water of the gulf is much warmer than the open sea so you may enjoy a quiet day at the beach here. For us Skala Polichnitou is a perfect place for relaxing  in an authentic Greek fishing village and furthermore a paradise for nature lovers and bird watchers.


The old village of Polichnitos was historically the place of refuge for the surrounding beach villages whenever pirates or enemies appeared.  Previously the town had around 10,000 inhabitants and was at that time the center of a rich olive growing region and the largest market place in the area.

Today with only about 2000 inhabitants, it is still a beautiful village, surrounded by olive groves, orchards and fields. Some houses are empty, but many have been neatly restored. A stroll through the town is strongly recommended; the old cobblestone streets and many beautiful old stone houses with a distinctive style and interesting architectural details are worth seeing.

Polichnitos is ideal for any traveller during or outside the traditional holiday season as an authentic place to stay. Throughout the year the village is full of life and you will find people on the street, taking care of their daily business or enjoying a cup of coffee or ouzo at kafeneia and ouzeries. The shops, tavernas and coffee shops are open all year, providing food and drinks to locals and visitors.

A stay in Polichnitos combines the charm of an authentic little Greek town with its street life and the quietness and secret places of the small cobblestoned backstreets.

One of the landmarks of the town is the storks in the town center on an abandoned chimney of an old olive press.  The storks nest there every year and the youngsters seem to return to the area as well.

The Hot Springs of Polichnitos are well known and highly appreciated by locals and visitors. The facility consists of two bath houses built during the Turkish occupation, modernized more recently, the original ancient buildings, the wells and springs outside and a beautiful old three-arched bridge worth seeing. You also find a little cafe providing drinks and snacks. The healing and relaxing effect of thermal water is remarkable. The clear and odorless water comes out of the ground at a temperature of 67 to 92 degrees. It is rich in minerals and said to be effective against a number of diseases and ailments. The quality of the thermal water is comparable to the famous mineral springs of Wiesbaden in Germany or Bath Spa in England.
