Molyvos, also called Mithymna, is the capital of the island of Lesbos. Yes, it’s a tourist hub, but that doesn’t take away from its inherent beauty. Think stone houses built amphitheatrically on the hillside, overlooking a pretty harbour lined with colourful fishing boats. Climb up to the Byzantine castle after lunch and drink in the views over the bay. After dusk, head along the beach for a mai tai cocktail at Congas Beach Bar.
