Healing Springs of Lesvos: Eftalou
At Molyvos are the Eftalou springs with their newly renovated bath house with individual private tubs or communal bathing. Recommended for rheumatism, arthritis, sciatica, neuralgia, skin diseases, kidney and gall gravel and gynecological complaints. You can swim in the sea or sit along the shore where the hot mineral water seeps through the rocks and mixes with the sea water in warm pools. Because of the beautiful beach and surroundings this is my favorite of the spas. It is a short walk to the excellent Eftalou restaurant. There is a paved path to the bath house and the beach below it. The old bath house is sometimes locked, probably to get people to go to the new bath house which you have to pay for. The new baths are tubs with faucets that ypou can control the temperature. The old bath house which is often locked is an anciuent tub that looks like a small swimming pool and is so hot that if you can keep your little toe in the water for more than thirty seconds thats pretty good. Old baths are open from 6am to 8am and 6pm to 10pm. New baths from 9am till 6pm. If you get here and want to take a free bath here's what you do. Go through the bath building and out the back to the small rocky beach. Right where the sea meets the old bath-house you can touch the water and see where the hot spring water is coming out. By stacking some stones and using the pebbles you can dig out your own bathtub and by letting the seawater mix with the hot spring water you probably can't find a healthier spa on the island. There is an outdoor shower nearby too. If you continue walking around the bend there is another long beach.
