    Windsurf in Tilos

    Windsurf in Tilos

    Known for its hospitable and inviting inhabitants, the island of Tilos is one of the less frequented destinations in Greece.

    Such a quiet appeal ultimately allows you to get out and become acquainted with the locals without the intrusion of other visitors. No doubt the greatest attraction of Tilos, however, is the Megalo Chorio which is home to the ruins of an ancient monastery and castle.

    In the afternoon, venture to Talka beach for a serene setting. The conditions here are ideal for windsurfing and even present endless coastlines for you and your guests to anchor. To round of your day on the island in style, be sure to grab an authentic Greek meal before preparing yourself for a cruise over to Chalki.
