Where to stay in Chios

Though most ferries arrive in Chios Town, many of best places on the island to stay at are resort towns and historical villages located elsewhere. If you want a sample of tourist life in Chios without traveling far, stay at Karfas, just a few miles south of Chios Town. This resort destination is booming in the summer months and draws big groups to its sandy shores, where its most popular hotels are. For a less crowded spot, head to Kardamila, a resort town on the island's northeastern coast that isn't swarmed by tourists. To explore the southern coast, consider staying in the medieval village of Mesta, which makes a great base for travel and has a number of small guesthouse options and boutique accommodations for visitors. To head off the beaten path, try the hilltop village of Volissos, a large town with charming bed and breakfasts.
