Its great history, the number of monuments and the crystal clear beaches are only some of the reasons that make Chios Island a unique choice among other Greek Islands. We invite you to visit Chios and discover these experiences on your own.

Chios is the fifth biggest island of Greece and covers an area of 904 square meters with a coastline that reaches 213 km. The island has many bays, coves and natural harbors, able to provide not only natural beauty but also the necessary sense of security. Located in the northeastern Aegean Sea just 7 miles away from the coast of Minor Asia, it belongs to the cluster of islands known as North Aegean (which includes the islands of Chios, Lesvos, Limnos, Samos, Ikaria, and Agios Efstratios). Near Chios, there are also two smaller neighboring islands, Oinousses and Psara witch deserve our special mention. The capital is the city of Chios, which is also known as Chora, hosts  the main port. The distance from Piraeus Port is about 165 miles, though one can reach Chios by air in less than 40 minutes. The island is known for its picturesque sceneries and the temperate Mediterranean climate with mild winters and rare rainfall summer. The winds usually blow north-northwest and the temperature ranges in summer between 28 and 30 degrees Celsius.
