91 beaches nestling almost everywhere around of the Chios landscape; crowded or remote; cosmopolitan or unexplored; one thing is certain: they all have a story to tell! Unveil their secret by diving into their crystal blue Aegean waters or lying under the Chios sun on sand or pebbles. Choice is yours but definitely if you go around the island will find your story.
No one who loves the sea could ever leave Chios dissatisfied. You don’t want to go far from the town? The beaches of Ormos tou Lo (=Lo’s Bay) and Tagma Despoti are at your disposal. You are into sea sports? Bella Vista and Afanis Naftis (=Unknown Sailor) are perfect for wind surfing. You want to combine legend with pleasure?
