Skala Sikaminias in Lesvos
I think that everyone who travels to Lesvos should visit Skala Sikaminias. Especially if you are staying in Eftalou, Molyvos, Petra or Anaxos. There are excursion boats every day to Skala Sikaminias from Molyvos and Petra.
Skala Sikaminias är en av de gulligaste fiskebyar jag har sett i Grekland.
From Molyvos it is about 14 kilometres to Skala Sikaminias if you drive the coastal road, but that road is not in such a good condition, so it is better to drive through the village of Sikaminia, then it is 19 kilometres to drive. You can also go by excursion boat from Molyvos and the other tourist resorts. About 150 people live in the small village.
There are almost more fishing boats in Skala Sikaminias than residents.
If you like colourful fishing boats, you will love Skala Sikaminias.
Skala Sikaminias is one of the cutest fishing villages I have seen and it is fully understood that it is portrayed on many postcards. Around the charming port there are two three irresistible tavernas. Even if you are not hungry, I'm sure that you will sit down at one of the tavernas and order something to eat or drink and enjoy the little dollhouse port.

It is not usual to sit and eat fresh fish this close to the fishing boats.
If there is anywhere on Lesvos you should eat fresh fish and seafood, it is here in Skala Sikaminias. I have never seen so many fishing boats and fishermen in such a small area. In addition, both fishermen and fishing boats are incredibly photogenic. So if you like photography, you'll love walking around with your camera.

ACCOMMODATION IN SKALA SIKAMINIAS
The village is small and therefore is the range of accommodation also small. If I were to stay overnight, I would probably choose to stay at the Hotel Gorgona, which looks very nice.
