Plomari is the ouzo capital of the world. Here is the factory of the Barbayianni ouzo which has an outlet. It is located on the South coast of Lesvos.

The harbor provides good shelter from the meltemi (the Etesians) but with easterlies and southerlies there is bad swell. The bottom is sand and rocks, good holding if you avoid the rocks. Moor stern-to or alongside the quay wherever there is space. If alongside, the port police will charge extra.

Caution: There are some large rocks near the quay, just below the surface, watch very carefully as you are backing to the quay.

The Bachus restaurant, on the NE of the harbor has very good food. Also the Platanos Taverna in the town (under a huge plane tree) is worth a meal. Fuel is available from a station about 500 m up the road E of the harbor, but you have to cart with jerry cans.

There is a water outlet by the park, but you cannot connect it to a house, you have to carry. Free wi-fi is available on the quay from the Municipality of Plomarion.
