Halki is a small island close to Rhodes, but so different in character. Once an island bustling with around 8000 people, an affluent sponge and fishing island and you can see this in the beautiful neo-classical buildings which since the 1980s have been slowly renovated, to produce the beautiful panorama around the harbour, Emborio.
Halki is a magical place. You may need to spend a few hours in getting there, but once you do, you may never want to leave. Slow pace, good food, friendly locals. Have coffee in the morning at the “PIATSA”, downtown Halki, that is, buy a “tyropita” from Dimitri’s bakery, greet the passers-by.
Swim in the crystal clear waters around the island. Go to Ftenagia beach with the tavern overlooking the cove, swim at Pondamos and eat at their lovely taverna. You can also go to another beautiful beach, Kania, with their lovely tavern. Relax, lead a simple, fulfilling holiday full of good food. Go to any of the wonderful restaurants in Halki and try the local specialties. The ultimate decompression, focusing only on what you need. We would love you to come back next year!
