Where to take best instagrams ?
Walking down the small roads of the island you will find so many amazing spots to take the most amazing instagram pics !
Favorite places to shop ..
No shopping . In the island you won’t find any stores with clothes or shoes only food and some souvenirs .
What to wear ..
Only swimsuits , kaftans and generally only beachwear . Every time I get clothes with me they just come back without being worn .
So , this week we are finally going to talk about Halki . You have probably seen a lot of posts and stories on our instagram about Halki . My grandmother is from this island and she has a house by the sea there , so I spend most of my summers there !
Halki is a very small island 50 minutes by ferry from Rodos . Colorful houses , crystal clear waters and charming beaches will give you the best and most quiet vacation of your life . The island’s port is built in the central settlement , Emporeio . Most of the properties and villas are located there . Three beaches of the island are reachable on foot or by car , Pontamos , Ftenagia and Kania .Pontamos is a sandy beach , perfect for those who love lying all day on the sand . You can go there on foot , its about 10 minutes from the port or far less by bus , it costs 2,5 euros .Kania is a very beautiful beach full of sun beds and a cantine where you can enjoy fresh fish and traditional greek food . I suggest you to take the mini bus to get there because the distance is quite big .Also there are a lot of more fascinating beaches, like Trahia, in the island but you can reach them with a boat only .
The thing I love the most about Halki is the bakery ! Omg , you guys have to taste the chocolate croissant and then you’ll know what I’m talking about. You have to try it , its so delicious !
If you need some time off , Halki is the perfect destination for you . It’s a tiny , traditional greek island full of beauty , I can’t imagine something better after an exhausting working season , can you ?
