THE BEACHES OF THE ISLAND TINOS IN GREECE

The nice small beach of Stavros is situated just outside of Tinos town. In the antique times there was a harbour here. Far into the sea you can see the remainss of the old harbour, and there is a small church on the beach. Normally it is very quiet here. The beach smoothly goes into the sea.

The island of Tinos has many beaches scattered throughout the island. There are the popular beaches of Agios Fokas and Kionia which are not too far from Tinos Town and where a variety of hotels were built to accommodate the guests. To these resorts there is a regular bus service from Tinos Town. A little further away are more beautiful bays with beaches that are really worth visiting, such as the Bay of Isternia (in the southwest, my favorite) with its tranquil, beautiful beach and a few good and cozy restaurants, and the a green valley in the Bay of Kolymbithra with its cozy beach and taverna located on the rocks. In these places it seems theat time stood still, and you still find the real authentic Greece. Of course there are many more nice beaches on Tinos, including the nice beach of Panormos, situated in the village with the same name. The beach of Stavros on 2 minutes walk from Anna's Rooms is a friendly small beach. On the beach there is a white church and usually it's pretty quiet here. This beach is shallow, so it's ideal for small children.

The beaches of Tinos are not comparable to the beaches you'll find on some other nearby islands. Most of them are much quieter than for instance the beaches you find on Mykonos and some of the popular beaches of Paros, and you will not find parasols and sunbeds on some of them. There are places where you can lie in the shade because there are plenty of trees on almost every beach so you can sit out of the sun when you need to. Often there is also a taverna on the beach or near the beach where you eat or drink something. The calm and the uncultivated is what gives the beaches of Tinos its charm. Most of the beaches are easily accessible by rental car, and still it doesn't get overcrowded becausee most of the visitors to the island the Greeks themselves and they only come to visit the icon in the church in Tinos Town.

Tinos Town has a few beaches within walking distance. The nearest beach is called Agias Fotia and is 500 meter away. Kionia on the west side of Tinos Town is better.
