Vatera beach in Lesvos

The extremely long beach of Vatera lies approximately 30 kilometres west of Plomari. The opinions differ about exactly how long the beach is. When we were here we asked three people and got three different answers. What do you do then? Measures yourself of course. We drove from one end to the other, and according to the car's metre reading, the beach was almost exactly 10 kilometres long. It's long.

The beach is so long and desolate that you almost get the feeling of being on a deserted island. It is a good beach, one of the best on the island indeed. The beach consists mostly of small pebbles, but there are also parts with sand. It is far between the sun beds. If you want to skinny dip there is no risk that someone sees you.

One reason why Vatera is so undeveloped is that it is relatively far to the airport. It has been spoken of widening the road over the mountains, then would tourist buses from Plomari and Agios Isidoros easily reach Vatera. As it is today they have to drive a long detour. However, it is no problem to go by car or scooter.

If you like to swim in hot springs, drive 8 kilometers north to Hot Springs of Polichnitos.
