Most of the local ceramics are produced by local craftsmen, who produce exact replicas of archaic Greek vases, sculptures, replicas of museum pieces, Byzantine icons, folklore weaving and modern Greek artistry. You'll also find the finest quality gold, silver and precious stones, as well as lots of places to buy leather bags, shoes and other accessories at very good prices. On the culinary front, the local thyme honey, olive oil, red cheese (goat cheese covered in red wine), and wine make perfect gifts.
Along with many of the Greek Islands, the best way to appreciate the great variety of Greek specialities is by ordering a meze, which will comprise small plates of dips as well as local fish and meat dishes for the whole family to enjoy. Tavernas and restaurants offer a wide variety of local and international cuisine.
Nightlife on the island of Telendos is limited to experiencing good food and drink in the handful of tavernas that line the shore.
