Chios Island is a Greek Island known for the mastic trees that you see only there.
It is very close to the Turkish coastline facing Cesme within hands reach. If its not a foggy day you can view the island clearly.
Port is located in the city center surrounded by all the cafes and shops selling mastic products along the shore.
Chios is not a place to prefer in winter. It becomes so quite that even natives of island goes to Cesme for shopping for daily needs. And in the summer you need to leave the town centre behind for swimming because most close beach is 7 km away. You can take a cab to go to the north or south. They are at the same distance but we recommend Karfas in the south.
Karfas is a typical Aegean village with long and wide beaches and sun beds for rental, and will make you feel in peace. Further the cafes at the shore serves many good food and drinks.

Food and Drink

Taverns and restaurants are found in the city center in almost all small streets servicing Greek and international cuisine.
Fish restaurants are abundant.
You should definitely try the sweet spoons that are being made here and are award winning. Spoon sweets are made of several fruits like grapes, apples, cherries and citrus fruits, which are preserved in syrup to give a very sweet taste to the fruits.



Chios is easily reached by plane or ship.
Airport except from regular flights has a lot of chartered flights and especially in the summer period.
Ferries reach the port from Athens and the near by islands but also from Turkey.
