Greece means... Athens and Mykonos. Well, true and not true: Greece is also much more.
The Greek gay everyday situation is still fairly bleak. Compared to other Mediterranean countries gays can lead a good life, but compared to other parts of Europe,
Greek gays still need to increase their self-confidence and esteem.

Some romantic bars such as famous, Kastro; one small gay beach,it's a perfect island to 'cool-off' after your fun& hectic time on Mykonos.

Lesbos Island (also called Mitilini - name of the Capital)
 
+ complete presentation of Skala Eressos on Lesbos Island: click here.
but as its name implies, this is the island where lesbians world over meet.
(Reservations during July & August are 'a must'!). Sappho was born near Eressos. which still attracts most Greek and foreign visitors. It's long sandy beach at Skala Eressos allows nude sunbathing. The island has many beautiful villages and places of interest like, Molivos Village, Petra...(some of our recommended hotels are, the Sunrise, Delfinia, Olive Press, Heliotrope at Vigla Beach, Laureate & Pyrgos Mitilini.)

The Island, and it's inhabitants, did not always welcome this incursion, but the situation has much improved in recent years. Lesbian-owned hotels are few, but we recommend the following (including the on-Eressos Beach Hotel) with the most amenities: Aeolian Village

Many traditional houses have upgraded to stylish hotels: the Casa Delfino, Halepa & many others.
