Near the centre of the island lies the town of Kalloni and it's beach village, Skala Kalloni.

Kalloni is a good place to go shopping, with some very nice shops in the centre. You can buy books about Lesvos from the Eirmos bookshop, there are a couple of good shops that sell CDs and plenty of good jewelers.

Skala Kalloni is a busy tourist resort and can feel a bit crowded in the summer, but the beach is quite pleasant. There is an old bakery in the centre of the village, where they still use a wood fired oven. This is reputed to be one of the best bakeries on the island.

The sardines from the gulf of Kalloni are famous throughout Greece, as I can testify from a conversation with an Athens taxi driver. They are really wonderful to eat with a glass or two of local ouzo.

In the winter and early spring, you can often see flamingoes in the shallows around the gulf of Kalloni. This area is generally a very popular area with bird watchers in the spring.
