Chios

Chios is one of the most beautiful of the Northern Aegean Islands and the architecture of some of the small villages is just plain wierd.

Daily boats from Pireaus take about 8 hours to get to Chios.

Chios is the fifth largest of the Greek islands, after Crete, Evoia, Rhodes, and Lesvos. However, of these it is the least changed by tourism.

This is a place where you can bimble around aquamarine ocean fringes undisturbed. Start to unwind and rid your self of stress as you let your eyes rest on attractive rock formations and crumbling cliffs.

Best beaches on Chios

Chios’ turquoise waters and amazing rocks are one part of the charm. the other is the people who are simply lovely.

Karfas beach, a few kilometers south of the city of Chios, is the most popular beach on the island. However, we prefer Emborios beach for the spectacular surroundings. Take the local bus.

Corfu beaches

There are two heavenly uncrowded beaches at Agios Georgios on the south-west coast of Corfu. They are surrounded by olive groves and nicely hidden away from the main road, so there is little traffic.

How about Chios in Winter

The brits seem to ignore much of the Med during winter, but with masses of sunshine and much warmer temperatures than at home, winter breaks on greek islands are a great way to see a difference side of the greek landscape and people. Since it is off season there are many bargains to be had and the locals are far more welcoming during the quiet period.
