Lesvos isn't a snorkeling paradise. But it doesn't mean that you should leave you equipment home. Not at all! Although it is not a tropical reef or even coastal terriitory I visited in Lanzarote you can find here something interesting and simply you can relax observing this unknown underwater world.
I take into consideration only coastal area without special expeditions to the nearest islets. I tried to find some interesting underwater life on 7-8 beaches. The best of them were rocky Eftalou beach and underwater meadows in Sigri.
You can find there 5-6 fish species: stripped, colourful, dotted. This nice landscape is also created by the no-shells snails and (attention) sea-urchins.
Equipment: You need just: mask and snorkel (tube). I also wear special t-shirt more for anti-sun protection (do not belive that some cosmetics will safe your skin under almost equatorial Sun) than against cold water temperature. For pebbled beaches it's better to wear the diving shoes (sea-urchins sometimes).

Wind surfing lessons
Had a few wind surfind lessons in the bay of Skala Kaloni. It's quite good there because of the shallow water, so as a beginner you don't get too tired if you fall off. At times the wind was quite strong as well.
