The harbour front in the village of Nimborio on the beautiful Greek Island of Halki (Chalki). Most of the bars and restaurants on the island can be found here (there are not that many to choose from). The lovely little village of Nimborio is the only settlement on the Island.

The prominant clock tower on the left was built with money endowed by the residents of Tarpon Springs, Florida, USA (descendants of Halki sponge divers who were forced to relocate when the sponge diving around Halki became unprofitable). Unfortunately, it does not work any more, consequently, it only displays the correct time twice a day.

Halki is a small yet very charming island, part of the Dodecanese group, situated opposite the west coast of Rhodes.

    I’d have moved a little – the blue ‘leg’ on the right’s a bit distracting, to me. Looks like the sort of place where perspective-flattening with a telephoto would be dreamy!

  • The ‘blue leg’ is actually a tarpaulin covering a pile of fishing nets.
