About Chios

Chios in the North Aegean, close to Turkey, is popular with Greek tourists and less so with foreign tourists and for this reason you can get a real taste of Greek life on this island. Chios is a beautiful island of fine beaches, pretty villages and stunning scenery. It is the fifth largest of the Greek islands so you'll have plenty of options in terms of different beaches, hotels, and places to eat and drink.

The name of the island possibly comes from the Greek word for snow: chioni, since the island's patron god Poseidon was born under snowfall. Traditionally it was a rich island due to the production of Mastic gum (which it still makes) and wine. As a consequence the architecture of the island with large stunning colourful houses reflects this rich history of trade.

Ferries to and from Chios

On board Blue Star Ferries, as well as a range of cabins and seating including airline style seats, you will find an a la carte restaurant, cafe, bar, shops, internet access, ATM machine and night club. All Blue Star Ferries also now feature Goody's fast food restaurants which are Greece's equivalent of McDonalds or Burger King. In the warmer months, some of the larger ferries also provide out-door swimmng pools.

Hellenic Seaways is one the largest and most well known of the Greek ferry companies. As well as conventional ferries, the company also operates catamaran type vessels and fast ferries which can sometimes be up to 50% faster than other companies with conventional ferries. This means that you can island-hop and have even more time to enjoy your destination. Their ferries are modern and offer a full range of facilities on board.

On board an Erturk ferry to nearby Cesme you will find friendly and knowledgeable staff dedicated to ensure that those who travel on their ferry services receive the highest value. Because the crossing is short, there aren't a multitude of features on the ships but you will find all the basic amenities you need including a snack bar.

    Quick & Stable Journey
    • Took only 45 minutes, as schedule. No trouble at all. The Ferry seems to be a bit old, but no problem on the facility.

    Lesbos/Mytilini to Chios
    • Relaxed ferry trip for island hopping, but a bit manic in Chios town on arrival, but soon quietened down after the ferry went on it's way to Athens.

    Thanks for a great little trip
    • We arrived very late from the airport due to a delayed flight. They saw we were rushing and helped us with the whole process. We just barely made it but it would not have happened without their assistance. The boat itself is very simple but it's only a 45 minute trip. Thanks.

    Simple trip and nice to get a taste of Turkey for a day
    • We went on a day trip to Cesme in Turkey. The journey is short - about 45mins. Nothing to complain about. Obviously you don't expect a lot on board. I didn't really enjoy Cesme too much though. I wanted to get a taste of a different culture but really the whole place is just designed for tourists and there is nothing really of 'authentic' Turkey - but I imagine the same could be said of lots of places. Don't know if I'd do it again.
