Thermal Springs

Lesvos due to its intense volcanic activity, has many thermal springs with different chemical composition and temperature. Some remain untouched, in their natural condition, and others have been developed into thermal spas which you can visit all year long to enjoy a relaxing and therapeutic bath.

Close to Mytilini, at a distance of about 9 km, in the Gulf of Gera you will find Therma. The water temperature is 39.5o C. It has two different pools (for men and women) where the water flows with force from marble spouts, giving the opportunity for natural hydro massage. The sea is right next to the spring, so after your thermal bath, you can have a refreshing swim in the Gulf’s waters. In the premises you can also have a massage session or drink a refreshment at the café.
