Tilos Gulet Charter Guide Tilos Gulet Charter Guide

The ragged, mountainous terrain of Tilos; its densely forested ranges; its hilly vistas; and its verdant valleys, are home to four hundred species of flowers and herbs and the habitat of rare species of birds such as Bonelli’s eagles, hawks, nightingales, goldfinches, herons and bee-eaters. You will find picturesque villages and fascinating beaches. The last elephants on Europe lived here. The dwarf elephants made their appearance on the island 45,000 years ago and became extinct approximately 4,000 ago.

The entire island is a huge ecological park and is protected by the relevant international treaties. In antiquity, Tilos was renowned for its herbs. It rose to prominence during the ancient classical times, the period when Irinna, a famous ancient poetess, lived on the island. There are ferries to Rhodes, Kos, Nisyros, Symi, Chalki and Piraeus. Area: 63 sq. km; coastline: 63 km; population: 533.

Megalo Chorio
Megalo Chorio is the island’s capital, 7 km NW of the harbour. Stone houses built according to the
island’s unaffected traditional architecture make this small town stand out. Strolls along the narrow
alleys are a pleasant pastime. The medieval castle has been built on the location of ancient Tilos town at the top of the hill.
