An ode to Tinos

An ode to Tinos

“Famous for Orthodox pilgrimages to the Church of Panagia Evangelistria in the main town of Chora, many travellers bypass Tinos, imagining it to be overrun with religious fanatics. In fact, just a few miles in either direction exposes the true nature of this enchanting and unique island: one of decorative dovecotes—remnants of the Venetians, decrepit windmills, and around 50 active villages. And the beaches. And the waves. And the food” writes Vogue’s Alison Beckner.

Enchanted by the beaches (Kolimbithra, Livada and Pachia Ammos), the small villages (Pyrgos, Kardiani and the surreal Volax) and it’s delicacies the writer claims Tinos is one of the most impressive under-the-radar greek isles one should visit. We do approve.
