What has Forbes written about Tinos
"Tinos has an authentic feel. Despite religious fame, it has avoided mass tourism and remains a true representative of the Cycladic scenery. The real beauty of the island hides in the more than 50 picturesque villages spread around the island and the hundreds of dovecotes scattered around the countryside. Excellent traditional cuisine can be found in the simple family-run eateries. The destination is ideal for travelers seeking to explore, offering an intriguing scenery and featuring exciting activities for adventure lovers such as trekking paths and rock climbing sites. A beach not to miss is Livada, with its impressive, rough scenery and secluded location. Overall, the purity of the island can turn even the most dubious guest into a true believer."
"The unexploited gem of the Aegean! It is only 90 minutes from Athens. You can also reach it with a 15-minute ferry from Mykonos. It's a dream destination for those of you that like to explore. While the town has its beauty, it's the traditional villages you'll find all over the island that are truly unforgettable. Triantaros is a medieval village, only 20 minutes from town, which is my favorite destination. Stay at Aeolis Suites, which are built into the mountain and canyons and reach from the mountain top down to the canyons and rivers. Apart from being warm, friendly and extremely hospitable they are blessed with a jaw dropping view of the Aegean. Don't forget to eat at the hotel's Zoga restaurant, which has stunning traditional flavors and a menu built around local ingredients. Try the eggs with loutza and volaki, the pickled wild artichokes, the traxana with olives, feta and calamari and lastly the wonderful rizogalo dessert."
