Mavra Volia is unique scenery you could not compare it with any beach of the world. Its beauty is the black pebbles, a result of a volcano eruption (the inactive Psaronas) hundreds of years ago. It is the only beach with black pebbles on the island.


Mavrta Volia beach, known also as Mavros Yialos, (=Black seashore) is about 30 km away form Chios town to the south. The water is crystal clear, deep and usually cold, while getting the dark color from the color of the pebbles. The beach is divided into two parts of which the second is known as Foki.

Go there to enjoy the magic of the volcanic scenery and the taste of fresh fish at the nearby taverns at the picturesque Emporios village.
