Lovely Tinos, Greece manages to escape the summer holiday crowds that convene on many of the other Cycladic islands – but that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to have fun in the evening. Many of the island’s café-bars open in the morning for coffee and breakfast and stay open throughout the day, serving craft cocktails and great local wines well into the night.
Cuban sounds, tiki cocktails and a rustic mood all combine to give Alohari on Rochari Beach a different feel from many other Greek beach bars. When it’s time to cool off from soaking up the sun on your recliner, order up a well-made cocktail. Try the refreshing Rochari thyme margarita with fresh Tinian thyme, or go more tropical with the Rochari Spicy – a blend of dark rum, passionfruit, fresh ginger and lime.
All cocktails and bites at Omma bar are made from local ingredients. Sip a Thetis cocktail made from gin, local melon liqueur and vanilla foam, or a Galini with local honey, rum, passion fruit and petimezi, a type of grape molasses loved by the Ancient Greeks. Design is inspired by Tinian tradition – with stone and earthy colours combining to make this a bar you’ll want to linger in long after your bedtime.
