Largely undiscovered and still very authentic. The Cycladic island of Tinos is a dream for those who like it quieter and more immediate. Large hotel resorts are not to be found on Tinos, instead a whole range of charming holiday houses as well as nice bed & breakfasts, some of which also offer yoga retreats. The island is known for the traditional architecture of its villages and its charming sandy beaches. The most beautiful and quiet beaches of Tinos are located in the south of the island. Another very popular activity is hiking. Through the rocky landscape, there are well-marked hiking trails that lead to quaint mountain villages, old windmills, dovecotes and abandoned monasteries. Unique and truly impressive are the thousand dovecoves that can be visited on Tinos. The doves were introduced by the Venetians, who ruled the Cycladic island for 500 years. By the way, dove meat is still considered a delicacy today.
Why is Tinos perfect for families?
The rocky island southeast of Andros and north of Mykonos is perfect for adventurous and active families. The year-round strong winds also often create big waves, especially in the north of the island. Especially popular with water sports enthusiasts is Kolymbithres beach, which is a real hotspot especially for surfers. The most beautiful and quiet beaches of Tinos are located in the south of the island, such as the coastal village of Agios Ioannis Porto with its more than 4 kilometers long sandy beach as well as Agios Sostis beach and Kionia beach.
