Visit this beach. It deserves all the tourism it can get! Free sun loungers and lots of wonderful space. It sits next to some wonderful daytime and evening time restaurants and bars. Well worth a visit for some chill out time!

Nice quiet bay. Unable to walk far either way on the beach unless you want to walk up to the main road as it is an enclosed bay. We found the beach uncomfortable without shoes with all the wood/stones and debris. We also found plenty...More

Top, hotel Malemi is offering Yoga and Pilates classes at the beach. The sound of birds and waves. A little breeze keeps you cool. The sea is clean and easy to go in without watershoes.

Nice beach not to busy, but few amenities, nice to swim and probably due to the bay the water is quite warm.

This island has had to endure so much hardship over last two years, with tourist bookings down 70%, I feel I owe them, for many a fantastic holiday I've had there. I love Lesvos, especially the little resort of Skala Kallonis. I'm so looking forward...More

We had heard the same things about the beach but found it to be quite clean. No cigarette butts or animal poo. That was October 2015. Lovely resort as long as you don't want anything more than quiet friendly and unspoilt... More

Dear Katja The beach is not really dirty, the sand is a greyish colour so not so attractive, but the water is really clear. The Hotel Malemi has an area on the beach at the end of the road from the hotel with sun beds... More
