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.
