Nautical charts of Lesvos

Lamnas Shoal

We advise you to be extremely careful around the Lamnas Shoal area. The shallowest point is merely 1m deep. An obelisk once stood there to warn of the danger but it has been ruins for many years.

Strong currents flowing southeastward characterize the shoal.

Toukmakia Isles

The are quite a few reefs and shallow shoals around the “Toukmakia” islets.

If you sail by them from the east you are in no danger at all.

There is no water on the islands but there are beautiful beaches for bathing and camping.

Gulf of Gera

It is practically impossible to discern the mouth of the Gulf of Gera from out at sea. An obelisk known as “o kalogeros” (the monk) serves as a seamark, giving off beacon signals indicating the location of mouth of Gulf.

There are no shoals in the gulf mouth area and the waters are 17m deep. The mouth is approximately 200m wide.

One should be cautious when sailing off the Cape of “Kavourolimni” as the shallow reefs extend for 50m toward the mouth of the gulf.

Gulf of Kalloni

Beacons mark the entrance to the Gulf of kaloni. It is very narrow with the narrowest point being 20m!!!

Although the gulf is 25m deep, this does not prevent vessels of any size from passing through the gulf entrance.

Sygri Bay

The Sygri sea area is quite dangerous. Northerly winds blow at wind speeds of 1-2 Beaufort higher than those in the east of Lesvos.

Many of the shoals near the shore require caution.

There is a Southern entrance to the Port of Sygri. The Port can easily accommodate even very large vessels (50m.).

There is also a smaller fully sheltered cove (small port) for small boats.

Beyond the port lies Sygri Bay, where anchorage is safe at almost any point.
