Molivos Camping


Molivos Camping is situated about 800m away from the traditional preserved town of Molivos. The town (also known as Mithymna) dominated by the Byzantine castle, at the northern tip of Lesvos, is arguably the most beautiful place of the island with its picturesque harbour and tiers of red-tiled stone houses climbing up the slopes away from the blue sea.

At night, the flood lit castle turns the town into one of the most romantic places on earth.

Here is where you’ll find our site, on the way to the famous beach resort of of Eftalou that, together with the village’s main beach, have been awarded the EU Blue Flag for its crystal clear waters.

At the foots of Lepetimnos mountain, the idyllic 4 acres site of our camping is surrounded by a native green environment and a rich variety of flowers that make wonderful shades around the tent and trailer spots. The friendly and helpful personnel add to our hospitable environment ensuring a pleasant stay to our valuable guests. The camping is close to Eftalou, famous for its beaches and therapeutical nature Hot Springs & and the 2 Km long beautiful pebble beach of St. Anargiri. Also, the beach of Tsipouri on the way to the castle is only 300m away. In addition Mithimna (Molivos) has an organized beach with sun beds, umbrellas and water sports.

There is a public bus service to Molivos & Eftalou on a very frequent schedule that stops next to the entrance of our site. As always when traveling, we always recommend your usual bug sprays and if camping, consider a natural bed bug spray, like green bean buddy.
