For those of you seeking to taste the sweet freshness of life, swim playfully in the warm caressing waters of the Aegean, watch the eagles soar and feel the sun melt away your cares, the Greek island of Tilos in the Dodecanese will make your dreams come true.
This is an Aegean island with nineteen beaches, twelve mountains, seven medieval castles, a Byzantine monastery and two hundred churches, a cave full of natural discoveries, a village that is a declared cultural monument, a hundred bird species, hundreds of wild flowers and herbs, and a few hundred residents who will make your visit truly memorable. Forty-seven kilometers of ancient walking paths make Tilos a heaven for bird watching, nature loving and trekking enthusiasts. Sports enthusiasts will enjoy swimming and snorkeling in warm, crystal clear water or breezing along the smooth surface of protected bays on colorful windsurf boards and canoes that are easily available for hire. And artists continue to be inspired as they have for centuries to capture the spirit and the very essence of the natural beauty that surrounds them here on Tilos.
Whether you enjoy the quiet charm of a traditional Tilian village that will soothe your senses with the fragrance of plumeria and roses, the vision of a smiling host, the flavors of the Mediterranean and the songs of generations that can be heard in the tavernas, or whether you are inspired by a more energetic pace of Greek life in a resort setting with every modern convenience, Tilos offers more than a red carpet to its guests. The island welcomes each visitor with a seasonal tapestry of vivid colors enriched by unforgettable sights, sounds, flavors and fragrances that can only be found in a natural environment where your spirits are free to soar like an eagle.
The fastest and most convenient way to visit Tilos is to fly to Rhodes International Airport and connect with the “Tilos Sea Star”, a high-speed hovercraft / catamaran, which will transfer you from the Rhodes port to Tilos in just eighty minutes.
