Introduction & General Information

Tilos island is an Aegean Island that belongs to the Dodecanese complex. It is located to the northwest of Rhodes and it is actually a tiny island with a few permanent inhabitants. Tilos has developed over the last few years as the paradise for campers and peace lovers.

The island has a great natural beauty: rocky mountains, crystal beaches, caves with stalactites and stalagmites, groves of fig trees, walnuts and olive trees. The wind blows frequently over Tilos, giving it a sense of coolness in summer.

The capital of Tilos is Megalo Chorio, a small village that lacks some of the modern amenities and has thus preserved its traditional character with its old churches and small, cozy homes. The main harbor of the island is Livadia. This is where large ferries and small fishing boats usually moor.

Tilos has got extraordinary architectural and archaeological attractions. There are the ruins of some medieval castles, a Byzantine monastery and a village declared as a cultural monument, Mikro Chorio.

Tourism on the island is not developed but it would certainly be a nice experience to spend a few days there and relax. The island may not have any luxury to offer you, but you will love it for its beauty and authentic style.
