A small and pretty village with steep winding alleys and narrow streets. There are 2 or 3 tavernas but I would recommend walking to the coast at Eristos and eating the home cooking at Eristos Beach Hotel. Really good value and very tasty. The church has a beautiful churchyard. It is a place to go if you enjoy walking. There... More

A unique bar that has preserved the abandoned village and offers a fantastic and mystical scenery where you can have your drink and enjoy a great view of the traditional village. They really deserve my congratulations. PS. Don't forget there is a free bus to the bar and back !!

This deserted village is reached by a stiff climb up from the main road where the bus driver drops you on request. At first you reach heaps of stones, tumbledown buildings, and think this is it, but when the residents left they took with them their doors and windows and any stones that could be used rebuilding their new houses...

We went during the mid season and during the day, so no idea about the nightlife. Lots and lots of goats, atleast 2 small chappels, cemetery, a church etc etc. Easy to access with car, or on foot (if not affraid of walking a bit).

Tilos is a quiet dry greek island between HALKI and NISIROS and the beaches are unspoild and there is good birdwatching. When vieuwing the island from the ferry I was amazed how natural and unspoiled it,s beaches and cliffs are.

Mikro Chorio is a village that was abandoned in the 50th century, when the water ran out, which made it impossible to live here. It is incredibly beautiful with views of the mountains. It's an almost magical feeling to walk around among the old houses, and try to imagine how life must have been here once. The houses are still... More

Amazing! We went when there was nobody there early in the day, and also up on the free shuttle in the evening. Both are worth doing.

Mikro Chorio is a village which was left by its habitants some 50 or more years ago. Now it's in ruins but worth of seeing. Very much so. The church of Mikro Chorio is still well kept and there are now - at the moment - 4 buildings remade. But Mikro Chorio doesn't make you sad, even if you see... More

Eerie place but well worth the short walk. Gives a good impression of the hard life that Greek islanders endured until relatively recently. Fot the more trendy among us--there is a disco under the stars with free transport every night!

Not too much going on but museum worth a look. Sleepy old town with great views from the church. the local bus is the best way of seeing this as the bus will travel to all the places you can easily get to as there are only about 12 miles of road.
