Saint Pelagia of Tinos, a Greek Nun saint, the one that has helped- through her visions- the discovery of the sacred icon of Panagia of Tinos. This icon is one of the most sacred, venerated icons of the Holy Mother, all over Greece and, maybe the most famous pilgrimage that is dedicated to Her Grace, each year on the feast of Her Dormition on August, 15th.
Just 5km east of the town of Tinos, there is one of the most beautiful and crowded coasts of the island, with the “eyes” turned right across to Mykonos. Having been awarded several times for the clarity of its shallow waters, it is ideal for the young holidaymakers.
The phrase “wild beauty” suits perfectly to this isolated bay in Pano Meria, with the black sand, fine cobblestone and transparent sea that gets suddenly deep. Those who will choose to traverse the 6km from Steni and drive in dirt road, they will be compensated by the time they have a look at the sculptural, peculiar rocks on the left and the “angry” waves during the etesian winds.
Also known as Mikri Ammos & Megali Ammos, you can detect it at the most northern part of Tinos, around 25min away from Chora. Basically it is separated in two; on the one hand there is the largest part which is hit by the northern wind and is quite peaceful and on the other hand, there is the smaller but protected from the winds bay with the semolina sand and jade green waters which is first in preference.
The road that begins from Triantaros, leads to a tranquil beach at the SE part of the island; this beach consists of white and black pebbles, crystal clear seabed and the obligatory for the shadow tamarisks. 5km separate the beach from the civilization of Chora.
A secret for the few and very best; it is near Steni at the eastern part of Tinos. As for umbrellas or deck-chairs, these are out of discussion! You can get to the remote, sandy coast with the jade green seabed either via Potamia either by boat.
“Godfather” of the rather leeward large sandy shore at the southern part of Tinos (11km away from Chora) was the chapel of the left side of the bay. Nature has endowed the beloved of the Tinians with shady trees, crystal clear, emerald waters and unobstructed sight of Syros.
