Be persistent; ask specifically how far a walk the room is to town. Mykonos always stays right in town at a lovely Greek apartment run by the lively Evangelia. Finding social activities on Mykonos is as easy as going to the beach. The revelry starts late afternoon and goes until you decided to call it quits.

Arriving at the tiny airport of Mytilene on the Greek island of Lesbos, I walk past a sign advertising "Lesbian wine". I'm on my way to Eressos, a small Greek village where, I am told, lesbian tourists are 10 a penny. This island in the Aegean Sea is to some lesbians what Torremolinos is to holidaymakers - the destination of choice for those who want to sunbathe and party with kindred spirits, and be open about their sexuality. Lesbians began to visit the island in the 70s, and have been coming back ever since.

The village has only 1, full-time residents, but three lesbian bars. Many visitors to Eresos keep coming back every year, and some have even stayed on to run businesses.
