The wind's not as strong as further north here (which isn't always a problem!) yet it is very consistent.

Meltemi in summer. Spring, winter and autumn have south wind too. Best during summer.

Access to Limena: 2 km (20 minutes’ walk) southern of Sigri Village. You can rent a car, bike or bicycle. Also, the center of Sigri will organize excursions in this spot if there is enough demand.


Access to Lesvos: The capital of Lesvos is Mytilene. The only Airport on the island is there, as the ferry is departing from there too.

Arrival by Airplane: The Mytilene International Airport "Odysseus Elytis" (MJT) is situated on the south eastern side of the island, 8 km out of Mytilene (capital). Transfer from and to this airport is available upon request. It receives daily flights from Athens all year round and the flight time is 1 hour. It also receives flights from Thessaloniki 4-5 times per week operated by a small air company. In summer, another small air company has air connections between Lesvos, Heraklion (Crete), Rhodes, Samos, Chios and Lemnos.  Furthermore, in the summertime there are more flights destinations and direct international flights from Germany's Düsseldorf Airport (DUS) and Munich Airport (MUC), Austria's Vienna International Airport (VIE), Great Britain's Gatwick Airport (LGW), and Slovenia's Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport (LJU).

Arrival by Ferry / Boat: Mytilene harbor has trips to Piraeus, the largest port of Athens, 4-5 times per week. This ferry also connects Lesvos with other islands, including Syros, Mykonos, Ikaria and Chios. The travel time takes about 10 hours. You can also travel by boat directly from Lavrion to Sigri Port. So for the weekend is excellent; every Friday from Lavrion, every Sunday night from Sigri. Also, there are trips from the harbor to Ayvalik (Turkey) every week. In summer, there are also ferries to Lesvos from the ports of Thessaloniki and Kavala on the northern side of Greece, as well as from other Aegean Islands, such as Samos, Kos, Rhodes, Lemnos, etc.
