Taverna menu



The food was excellent & more than we could eat for 15 euros / head


Driving back to Tyros after lunch

Old windmills high up on the rocky cliffs


A long way up to carry bags of corn for grinding


Fine views out to sea on the road back to Tyros

On the beach outside the hotel - the sea is cold but some hashers go for a quick dip & dry-off in the sun


Then it's time to take advantage of the fine afternoon and also get-in some sunbathing
