Summer vacation in Karfas of Chios

Chios is a beautiful island, ideal for summer vacations, as it has many and crystal clear beaches, beautiful picturesque villages and a castle in the city center.

Karfas is a seaside village, just 7 km from the center of Chios.
It has the largest beach on the island, with fine sand, shallow for several meters and ideal for children.

The impressive thing is that the sea has only sand, no algae or stones, even at great depth, which is why it is characterized as a sea desert!

Much of the beach has sunbeds and umbrellas (with payment) but there is a lot of grace for mats!

On one side of the beach there are taverns, restaurants and cafes. There is also the possibility for various water sports and games.

The area has other hotels and rooms to let. See them all

We stayed at Sideratos apartments, a stunning complex with room for rent right on the sea. Modern large rooms with bright colors and a large terrace overlooking the endless blue of the Aegean. The owners are hospitable and helpful. We highly recommend it!

The view from the terrace

This summer visit Chios and specifically Karfas, to swim in one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece. The close distance from the center makes the movements very easy. By bus you can go down to the city to go shopping, walks and enjoy a drink or snacks at the port. Also from the center you can take a bus to go to any other part of the island you want.


* Karfas offers for a quiet vacation, even in August when tourism is more, there is peace and just on the beach!

* Be sure to see them Mesta, the beautiful medieval village of the island. read more here.

* Try natural mastic as well as other products with mastic (such as liqueurs, cookies, carbonated soft drinks, body creams)
