Activities like swimming, diving, surfing, trekking, horse riding, bicycling, bouldering, climbing and fishing may attract your interest.

Tinos is also a spiritual island, widely known for the miraculous icon of the Virgin Mary, which is kept in the Church of Panagia Evagelistria in the town. 

As Tinos Island is situated in the heart of the Cyclades in the Aegean Sea, it’s easy to take daily excursions to the nearby islands; Mykonos, Syros, Paros, Andros, Koufonisi or Dilos, which is an archaeological park. For your local cruises you can either rent a motor boat, or use the daily ferries and sea jets.

WINE – BEER MAKING & TASTING

Because of its dry, sunny climate that offers the appropriate conditions for the cultivation of grapevines, Greece is one of the oldest wine-producing countries. In Ancient Greece, wine was associated with the worship of Dionysus, the god of wine and “Dionysian” cults existed in the past. Hippocrates also used wine for medicinal purposes. There are wineries on Tinos and you can try a variety of exceptional Greek wines. Autumn is an ideal period for attending a wine festival as grapes are ready to be harvested.

A small Greek brewery was also recently established on Tinos, which produces a fresh unpasteurized pilsner beer “NISOS” (island in Greek). The brewery is a place worth visiting.

OUZOfication

Let ouzo (an anise-flavoured aperitif that is widely consumed in Greece) travels your mind… ‘Ouzofication’ is when you gather together some new friends to drink ouzo in the Diles & Rinies pool area and talk laugh and enjoy the view.  

We are grateful to our dear guest Thierry, who inspired the word and ever since ‘ouzofication’ has become a habit!
