Beach
“One of the most famous and unique beaches in Chios. Famous for the black stones from volcanic explosion is a must visit. I would suggest to visit in the afternoon since in midday stones get hot while in afternoon mountain shadow helps protect from sun. You can combine with a nice meal in one of many taverns in Emporeios.”
