|The beach of Faneromeni on the island of Lesbos in Greece|
Faneromeni Beach is quite a large and wide sandy beach in the nortwest of the island of Lesbos, just a few miles above the village of Sigri. You can reach it by a partialy unpaved road (in 2006) that leads from a sign just before you enter Sigri (you turn right here). Faneromeni is quiet, reasonably clean and there can be a bit of a breeze. I personally liked this beach and found it was one of the nicest ones on the island, but then again, I like it when it's quiet. It was so quiet (read: deserted) that there is a possibility for naturism, but since the beach is quite large naturists would also find their place in the sand if the beach would be a bit busier.
On the beach there is a small church that is partly build into the rocks, where you can light a candle if you like that.
For people that come by car and want to park it here: watch out and don't drive too much on to the beach because the sand is very thin and you get stuck easily, just like we did. Fortunately for us there were two more people somewhere on the beach that we could ask for some help to give it a little push.
