Known best for her deep waters, this beach offers you the perfect spot for a peaceful, laid back swim, while set against the comforting backdrop of the small, yet ornate church of Agia Markella. The village is near Volisso, at a distance of about 48 km from the island’s capital. The beach and village are named after the island’s protector and patron Saint, Markella.
Her historical significance attracts a large portion of the tourists and visitors alike who come to Chios every year. The crystal-clear waters and sandy, pebble beach will be just the ticket, and your visit here wouldn’t be complete if you didn’t stop by the seaside taverna for some local island dishes, including the freshest seafood around.
