An island we had never heard of until the second day of our honeymoon, Kastellorizo, or “Meis” as they call it in Turkey, was a lovely surprise.

After the previous day of island-hopping along the turquoise coast, we were more than pleased when the boat tour company guide told us that we could spend yet another day on the sea if we took the ferry over to Meis (as it’s known in Turkey) / Kastellorizo (as it’s known in Greece). We enquired immediately.

See the photos below for a glimpse of life on this tiny island.
