Avlonas – The Gulf of Gera is the smaller of the two gulfs which cut into the island of Lesvos and closer to the capital Mytilene. The mountainous landscape on the western side of the Gulf is dominated by olive groves, fertile fields and fruit orchards, as well as small, authentic villages. Above all sits the highest mountain of the island, Mount Olympus. The region is barely touched by tourism; however, you can find a few, very pleasant little resorts with hotels beside the gulf.

Perama – although still a very small local village - is the center of the area. In Perama and the surrounding villages you can find old-fashioned, traditional kafeneia and tavernas. In many places you will find only local people and hear only Greek voices.

A holiday in the Gulf of Gera area is certainly more for individual travelers who are looking for something different to just a beach. The area is ideal as a base for excursions, tours and hikes through the beautiful countryside.

The settlement of Avlonas is located at the mouth of Gera’s Bay and consists of a beautiful coastline with sandy beaches, olive grooves and two excellent tavernas.
