Livadia is the island's main port and the largest village. The tourist resort is located on the east side of the island, 7 km south east of Megalo Chorio, the capital of Tilos. The small cute village is set in a tremendously beautiful and wide bay and has kept its traditional traits. The Tilos Police Station building at the port stands out for its architecture, reminiscent of the Italian domination of the island from 1912 until 1948. On the rocky mountaintop above the village, sits the Castle of Agriosykia for the past six hundred years, overlooking the picturesque port. Near the port is a square, a popular gathering place for both tourists and islanders, especially in the evenings.
Looking eastward you can see the mountains of Turkey while on the northwest side, the island of Symi rises out of the distant background. Along the pedestrian seafront promenade a nice pebble beach stretches out with clear waters and many trees for shade. Free sun beds are offered by the cafes and taverns to its guests. Watersports are also available. There are plenty of rooms to let and multitude of small taverns where you can taste good old-fashioned Greek homely fare and fresh fish.
