Melinda beach in Lesvos

Melinda is a tiny tourist resort with a long pebble beach. The village is beautiful from above, but gives a worn impression when you arrive. We had decided to stay a few nights in Melinda when we were on Lesvos for the first time, we had an image of a small cosy seaside resort, but it was far too decadent to suit us. But the beach is cool in a way I can not put my finger on. At one end of the beach is a cliff that makes one think of a beach in Thailand. There are a couple of pensions and some tavernas backing the beach.

Melina is located about 6 kilometres west of Plomari. The road follows the coast. Lesvos' longest beach - Vatera - is located about 30 kilometres west of Melinda. If you come from that direction you drive to the end of Vatera beach where you turn left into the mountains. When you arrive at the tiny village of Kato Stavros, turn right.

After about 30 minutes bumping on a narrow dirt road, you finally reach an asphalt road. There you turn right, pass the villages of Akrasi and Paleochori, shortly after you will arrive at Melinda.

ACCOMMODATION IN MELINDA

As said, there are only a few accommodation options in Melinda. If you are looking for peace and quiet and a beachfront accommodation, you will surely like this little village. Of the pensions I have seen, Psaros Melinta seems to be the best. It is located right on the beach, and has a taverna with the same name.
