Day 6: Kos - Tilos

7 days around the Dodecanese


The island of Tilos is one of the smallest in the Dodecanese Islands. Its three villages have a combined population of just 300 inhabitants, making Tilos a truly secluded spot. Nineteen beaches, twelve mountains with natural springs, seven medieval castles, a Byzantine monastery, two hundred churches, a cave with traces of past digs, and sixteen conservation areas make Tilos a modern wonder.

The island’s main port is Livadia. Here you’ll find Tilos’ most popular beach and a handful of perfectly lovely cafes and restaurants. Not far from the city is the old settlement of Micro Chorio. From there the road north leads to Megalo Chorio, the present-day capital of Tilos, and the road west leads to the island’s most beautiful beach – Eristos. Agios-Antonios is the island’s second port. Situated nearby is the beautiful sandy beach of Plaka. From there the road leads to the Monastery of St. Panteleimon – the island’s protector.
