The last sun drenched mile of pathway wanders through the wooded valley. A cove fringed by a sandy beach and a cooling swim awaits. Relatively unknown to visitors to Greece, the Cycladic islands of Tinos and Andros offer miles of ancient stone pathways, unspoiled countryside, wooded valleys, and quiet beaches and are a walkers paradise. Both islands are a delight for nature lovers with many species of birds and springtime flowers. Relatively untouched by tourism, the islands offer a true Greek experience with lots of local flavours and colour. After spending one night in the attractive harbour town of Nea Makri on the Greek mainland, we take the ferry to the island of Tinos. Popular with pilgrims visiting the church of Panagia Evangelistria, the islands green interior offers picturesque, small villages there are over 60 on the island traditional architecture and over a 1,000 artistic Venetian dovecotes! Following old mule trails and pathways well walk between remote villages, enjoy taverna lunches and swim from sandy beaches. We island hop the short distance to nearby Andros, the most northern and second largest of the Archipelego, where we discover a verdant landscape dotted with springs, streams and waterfalls, working watermills, quiet villages and superb sandy beaches. We are joined by a local guide on one day who gives us an insight to the island and we also enjoy a traditional farmhouse dinner.
