Amphitheatrically built at the foot of the mountain, consists of tall, two and three floors renovated mansions that they really consist a matchless beautiful traditional village. The city has a stately beauty that reveals samples of last acne- its worth to walk the alleys. Italian architectural style houses and neoclassicals, two floors with a roof, with five windows, large door on each floor and pediment with “eye”, reach the beach and are samples of the past prosperity of the island.

The island is ideal for quiet holidays with hiking where you can discover some of the 360 chapels and the remains of a Venetian castle at the foot of which the ancient capital of the island, Chorio, sleeps. Life on the island is simple and unhurried. You can spend many hours in the sun at any beach of the island you like. And do not forget.. to escape from the absolute quiet, nearby is Rhodes island by which Halki is connected daily. Finally, note that there are no cars or buses on Halki- you will enjoy all routes walking!
