Chalki Guide

Located in the Dodecanese group of islands, the Greek island of Halki lies in the Aegean Sea and is the smallest inhabited island in the Dodecanese. Lying around 6 km to the west of the island of Rhodes, Halki has managed to retain much of its natural charm as it has not developed, so far, into much of a tourist destination. The island, with its relaxing beaches and beautiful architecture make it an ideal destination for those visitors seeking peace and privacy. Few beaches in Halki are organized and can be accessed on foot or by bus. The rest of the beaches on the island are totally secluded.

There is an abandoned village in the centre of the island which is overlooked by a medieval castle. The village was abandoned when piracy was confronted in the Aegean Sea and therefore the village's inhabitants began to move to the area around the port.

The island is connected by conventional ferry and Highspeed ferries to the port of Piraeus and the rest of the Dodecanese islands. It is also possible to take a ferry to the Cycladic islands and to Crete via other ports.

Nisyros Guide

The Greek island of Nisyros is one of the Dodecanese group of islands and lies in the Aegean Sea, between the island of Kos and the island of Tilos. Nisyros is regarded as one of the most beautiful islands in the region and is largely untouched by tourism. The island, which has a coastline of around 28 km, was created, according to mythology, during the war between Gods and Giants where Poseidon chased the Giant Polyvotis down to Kos, cut a part of it and threw it to his enemy, sinking him forever in to the bottom of the Aegean Sea. This rock is Nisyros and the volcano's eruptions are said to be the angry breathing of the defeated Giant.

The island's capital, and home to the island's port, is Mandraki and is one of the largest villages on Nisyros. Mandraki is characterised by charming cobblestoned streets and squares and typical Greek whitewashed two storeyed houses complete with wooden balconies. The nightlife is not very intense but you will surely have a good time in the village where there are little tavernas and some bars to enjoy.

It can be reached by ferry from Piraeus, Kos and Rhodes.
