History of Plomari

Plomari (Greek: Πλωμάρι) is the only sizable coastal settlement in the south, and indeed the second largest town on Lesbos, a Greek island located in the northeastern Aegean Sea. The Municipality of Plomari is the administrative entity that surrounds the town. It is the southernmost on Lesbos island and has a land area of 122.452 km² and a 2001 census population of 6,698. Its largest towns or villages are Plomari, the municipal seat (pop. 3,337), Plagia (640), Palaiokhori (501), Megalochori (447), and Akrasi (410).


Plomari is located due south of Mount Olympos of Lesvos island. It offers scenic appeal as well as the presence of its famous ouzo distilling industry. Among several local brands, Varvayianni is the most famous but Yiannatsi, Arvanitou and Pitsiladi are thought to be its equal. They can all be sampled at the traditional kafenia. The local festival (or "panigiri") season kicks off in mid-July with an ouzo festival, and culminates towards the end month in celebrations honouring Agios Haralambos and including such rural activities as horse race. The seaside summer resort of Agios Isidoros lies on the east, two kilometers far from Plomari, while picturesque Ammoudeli is located on the west. Agios Isidoros has been voted as the seventh best beach of Greece, in a voting that took place through the internet for the program of clean coasts. West of Plomari 6 km away you can reach Melinda, a 700-metre sand-and-shingle beach at the mouth of a canyon choked with olive trees. It is an alluring place, with sweeping views west towards the Vatera coast and the cape of Agios Fokas. Another great beach is Tarti, about 22 km from Plomari, is a 400-metre-wide cove. Rocky capes gird it to either side, and the water in the bay is unique in colour and clarity.
