An island of black volcanic rock many thousands of years old, this tiny speck of land between cosmopolitan Kos and Tilos captivates visitors with its wild beauty. Some attribute its charm to the mysterious energy emitted by its active volcano, others to the diverse landscape.
It is unique combination of black sand and deep blue sea, verdant hills and hot springs, beautiful white villages in an authentic island style and picturesque churches perched on rocks.
Nature lovers, walkers, romantics and free spirits have always loved the island’s tranquillity and retro character. The same goes for the many artists who have made it their second home over the years. Having emerged as a film location for a number of European and American productions, the evocative volcanic island of the Dodecanese is ready to share its secrets with visitors attracted by an alternative destination with the allure of difference.
