Mithimna or Molivos (Μόλυβος) is a small harbor on the NW coast of Lesvos. It is a picturesque harbor and the village of Molivos, about 10 minutes up the hill, is also very picturesque. Unfortunately it is one of the most touristically developed areas in the island. The harbor provides excellent shelter throughout the year. At most times, there is space on the quay for about eight yachts on anchor moor or just four if rafted up alongside. It is best to anchor moor unless the harbour is very quiet. Both fuel and water are available on request and there are electricity points along the quay.
The new, 220-berth Mytilene Marina has now opened at the S end of the large harbour of Mytilene. It offers a much quieter and cleaner alternative to the main harbour itself.
Located on the north coast of Lesvos, this delightful town with its winding narrow streets and castle on top of the hill, has an outer breakwater which offers good shelter. Go stern or bows-to in any available space, water and electricity available. Holding is poor so check your anchor carefully. The inner harbour has a very narrow entrance channel and is only suitable for very small yachts – shelter inside is excellent.
