The walk from Tilos port towards Lethra beach is the most spectacular and thrilling activity we did in Tilos. We did it with our 8-year-old daughter. Our goal was the Red beach but the trail to descend to it was not so clearly marked and it looked also rather long, so we went on towards Lethra beach. You don't have to reach it since the best part of the experience is the walk itself. We left the port before 17.00 so that some parts of the trail were in the shade. We were back before 20.00 but kept stopping: you would take pictures at every step!

Probably the very best activity on Tilos is the walk (1 hour) from Livadia up to the ruined village of Mikro Chorio and then in 1 1/2h to the Lethra Beach, from where one can return directly on a coastal path - again in about 1 1/2h - to Livadia. With an extensive visit of Mikro Chorio this makes for a good full day program. With about 250m asl Mikro Chorio is the hightest point of the walk. But as everywhere in Greece the path is stony, so good hiking boots are recommended. On the way from Mikro Chorio down to Lethra Beach is - thanks to a pump by Coca Cola Company - a fountain with running water. Here the necessary water bottle can be filled up, because there is nothing to be found at the beach itself. Lethra beach consists of small pebbles. To the right of the beach the pebbles get smaller, in parts there is even sand and access into the water is easier. In the afternoon one can also find some shade there by the cliffs. Otherwise no shade is available on the whole beach, except under a quite big terebinth tree. When there I was alone, so no need to make the swimming trunks wet, but nudism seems popular on all beaches of Tilos, except at the one by Livadia itself. Nowadays the whole area of Lethra is abandoned, there is no house, no hut, no chapel to be seen anywhere, but there had been some cultivated fields in earlier times. All one sees now are some olive trees, some carobs and oleander. In May 2018 the beautiful path to Livadia was partly interrupted due to a landslide.

Very enjoyable walk (approx 50-60mins) from Livadia along the hillside and cliffs brings you to Lethra. It's not the best beach on the island but is one of the quietest. There is just one tree in the centre of the stoney beach that provides any shade so it's worth getting there very early to claim your spot.

Beautiful beach and coastal walk. It took us about 40 minutes to walk from the main road ( near turning for Mikro Chorio) to this beach. Interesting rocks out at sea. The path continues round the coast to Livadia.
