Overview

For such a small island (63 sq km) Tilos has a lot to offer and over the years has established a loyal clientele that returns year after year. The population of just 300 zealously protects the island's environment resulting in a great variety of bird (102 species), plant and insect life. The rather wild and mountainous scenery is ideal for walkers and there are two official walking guides on the island though many will opt to venture out on their own making use of the excellent local walking guide pamphlet which includes 9 walks. With the scent of wild herbs such as rosemary, oregano, thyme and basil in the air, wonderful views and maybe a break in the journey on one of the island's beaches, these walks will not disappoint.

Our accommodation is located in the port area of Livadia which benefits from a sweeping, pedestrianised waterfront, home to a healthy selection of tavernas, cafes and small shops where a warm welcome awaits. Tamarisk trees shade the pebble beach which laces much of this horseshoe bay. The sleepy village of Megalo Chorio is linked to Livadia by the island bus which then continues on to sandy Eristos beach. On a Sunday, this same bus normally makes the journey to the beautiful Byzantine monastery of Agios Pandeleimonas. Concealed just below one of the highest locations on the island amidst tall cypress and plane trees, the monastery was constructed in 1470 in honour of Saint Pandeleimonas. Car hire can be booked locally as well as local boat trips.
