Tinos Island

Tinos is the third largest of the Cyclades islands after Naxos and Andros. It is also known as the "Holy Island" with a famous shrine to the Holy Virgin. For Orthodox Christians it is a special place of pilgrimage.
Those interested in the glories of Ancient Greece will want to explore the temple of Poseidon in Kionia and the nearby island of Delos, birthplace of the gods Apollo and Artemis.

From the golden terraces of the hillsides to the unspoiled beaches Tinos is extraordinarily beautiful. The captivating landscape is famous for its picturesque villages and old ornamental pigeon houses. There are so many great wonderful places for hiking, biking or simply lazing on the beach. Little tavernas all over the island will please you with local specialties.

Whatever you like to do we are always at hand with help and suggestions.

Tinos is easy to get to from Athens. There are several ferries a day from Piraeus or from Rafina, not far from Athens airport. Or you can fly to Mykonos and take the ferry from there. It only takes half an hour.
