Plomari (older form Plomarion) is a seaside village, of Lesbos (or Lesvos). It is the seat of the Plomari Municipality.
Due south of Mount Olympos and perched on the edge of the fan, Plomari is the only sizeable coastal settlement in the south, and indeed the second largest town on Lesvos. It presents an unlikely juxtaposition of scenic appeal and its famous ouzo distilling industry among several local brands, Varvayianni is the most famous but Yiannatsi and Arvanitou are reckoned just as good. They can all be sampled at the traditional kafenia. The local panigiri season kicks off in mid-July with an ouzo festival, and culminates towards the end month in celebrations honouring Agios Haralambos and including such rural activities as horse race. The seside summer resort of Agios Isidoros lies on the east, two kilometers far from Plomari, while picturesque Amoudelli is located on the west. Agios Isidoros has been voted as the seventh best beach of Greece, in a voting that took place through internet within the program clean coasts. West of Plomari 6 km away you can reach Melinda, a 700-metre sand-and-shingle beach at the mouth of a canyon choked with olive trees. It’s an alluring place, with sweeping views west towards the Vatera coast and the cape of Agios Fokas. Another great beach is Tarti, about 2 km from Plomari, is a 400-metre-wide cove. Rocky capes gird it to either side, or the water in the bay are unique in colour and clearance.
