Located only 20 kilometers north from the touristic hotspot Mykonos, Tinos island invites its guests to discover the traditional Greek lifestyle. After a 30 minutes ferry trip, individual tourists looking for stunning landscapes, lonely beaches and Mediterranean kitchen are welcomed by the guest friendly population of one of the most attractive locations in Greece.

While wandering through the terraced landscape on hidden pathways or climbing on nearly untouched mountains, visitors of Tinos discover ancient places, collect wild growing vegetables, fruits and herbs or just relax on hundreds of secret sandy beaches at the seaside of the island.

The city of Tinos, giving the island it´s name, is known for the beautiful miracle church placed on top of an inner city hill. Every year in August, thousands of pilgrims crawling on their knees the steep 700 meters from the harbor to the church, sending their wishes to heaven and hoping for gratification.
