Introducing Skala Eresou
The once-quiet fishing village of Skala Eresou has learned to profit from its history. This bohemian beach town, where passionate poet Sappho was born in 630 BC, is supposedly ground zero for the lesbian international. The town's essential appeal derives from its 2km-long beach, good seafood, and low-key nightlife, all enhanced by shiatsu, fruit smoothies, healing arts and wi-fied cafes.
Near the town market, the remains of the early Christian Basilica of Agios Andreas include partially intact 5th-century mosaics.
