Laouti is the longest beach on the island of Tinos, and it boasts golden sand, shady trees and shallow waters. Want to stay nearby? Book into Akti Aegeou, a resort-style hotel, located just 30m (100ft) from the beachfront. The one- and two-bedroom studios, apartments and suites have kitchens for self-catering and sea view balconies, and there’s a pool with a pool bar for guests – go for one of the fruity summer cocktails. There’s also a restaurant that serves homemade cakes and pastries for breakfast.
