Tilos

The enchanting island of Tilos is more luxuriantly verdant than many other Greek islands. As a result, it’s renowned for its abundant wildlife; particularly its bird species which are many and varied, Tilos will indeed bring out your inner ornithologist! In fact, this entire island is a nature reserve and is a real nature lovers paradise.

Situated between the two well known Greek islands of Kos and Rhodes, Tilos is a true gem. Soon to be 100% reliant on renewable energy, it’s ideal for travellers looking to visit somewhere that doesn’t impact as much on their carbon footprint. Its gentle rolling landscape dotted with tiny traditional fishing villages and deserted coves is perfect for leisurely hikes. In the hills above the port of Livadia you will discover the haunting medieval hamlet of Mikro Horio, abandoned in 1940. Uninhabited ever since, this makes for a spine tingling visit.

Beach lovers are also catered for, with its unspoilt, white sandy beaches perfect for peaceful relaxation and contemplation. Kick back, chill out and breathe in the Greek way of life that seems to have stood still for the past few decades. Tilos is a real get away from it all island, and you’ll most certainly fall in love with it!
