Nisyros Guide

Located in the Dodecanese group of islands in the Aegean Sea, the island of Nisyros lies between the neighbouring islands of Kos and Tilos. The island's coast has a few sandy beaches, which are generally located in the north east part of the island, but generally the Nisyros coastline is characterised by rocky or pebbled beaches. The island's volcano is active but luckily for tourists it is not erupting and Fumaroles can be found at the craters. According to Greek mythology, the island was formed when Poseidon cut off a part of Kos and threw it onto the giant Polybotes to stop him from escaping. Fifth century ancient walls, which were originally part of the acropolis on the island, can be found near Mandraki and the island's ancient name was Porphyris.

From the island's port there are conventional and high speed ferry services that generally depart to the other islands of the Dodecanese. There are also services to the Cycladic islands and also to Crete, but usually via another island.


Tilos Guide

The Greek island of Tilos is one of the Dodecanese group of islands and lies in the Aegean Sea. Unlike some of its neighbours, Tilos is a quiet island with few residents which as a result has managed to retain its original Greek atmosphere and charm. Those that do live on the island largely live off fishing, some agriculture and the little tourism that does exist. A popular site on the island is the beautiful but abandoned 15th century monastery of Agios Panteleimon, which contains some interesting icons. Also of interest is the Castle of the Knights, where the Knights of St. John were based in the 15th century. Also on the island are a number of other churches including perhaps the best known Church of the Archangel Michael which is in Megalo Chorio. Other popular sites on the island are the Park of Tilos, with its many species of flora and fauna, and the Cave of Charkadio where visitors can see the remains of the dwarf elephants that lived on the island some 45,000 years ago. The fossilised bones where first discovered in the 1970's.
