Coastal Paths on Tilos

The coastal footpaths are dramatic in their scenery, often perched half way up steep cliff surrounded by good quality garrigue.

Everywhere the low yellow flowered bushes of  Greenweed or Genista acanthoclada scent the air with coconut not dissimilar to our own gorse bushes.

Butterflies; gatekeepers everywhere, clouded yellows and eastern baton blues patrol their patches up and down the hill sides.

On the shore below shags preen themselves. Tilos has a small resident population.
