Chios, magical and unexplored
I travel to the Greek islands as far as I can remember. Every summer from a very young age we went on holiday to a Greek island. But we never went to Chios, although it is one of the most famous islands of our country. I don't know why, but Chios has never intrigued me until the day I saw a travel show for this island. I remember it was Sunday afternoon and I was on TV until I got a travel show and as usual I sat down to see her. As soon as the show's over, I tell my wife next year we're going to Chios. The point is, by the time I got to the island, I was under the impression that I might not have chosen properly. Luckily, it was the best choice I could make.
Chios is a destination that will fascinate you as it has a compelling history, has lots of exceptional natural beauty and beaches that will enchant you.
In this section you will find general and historical information about the island.
Chios has more than 90 beaches. Beaches for all tastes. Shallow, deep, with sand, with pebbles, organized or not... Surely here you will find several beaches that will exceed your expectations.
