The BLACK beauty beach!!!!!
Sep 2019
There are only so many unique beautiful beaches out there! This is ONE! The black clear water unique beach of Chios! A number 1 spot to visit no matter she season.

Water is usually very cold as most beaches in Chios and the water front steep! But worth it!

Just keep away from swimming during the winter months except if your used to it.

A special beach...
Aug 2019
This is really a special beach, made up of uniform dark pebbles. It has clear and clean water (quite cool, however). It can be accessed by car. That is to say, if it's not a peak time and you can find a parking place. If not, you may have to walk a few hundred meters. The beach is spacious enough though. It was also clean (devoid of garbage) when we were there, which is always the nicest thing. There are no shades, so bring your own or try to seize one of the few park benches by the side of the pedestrian road overlooking the beach from a distance.

Beautiful ... But not quite
Aug 2019 • Family
I am very happy to be here in Mavra Volia. This is one of the most beautiful beaches in Chios... but they have no public bathrooms. Given its location and demographics, one would expect o see at least one toilet - given it has a beverage stand.

Must see
Jul 2019 • Friends
Anyone who goes to chios must visit this unique beach. As it is not yet commercialized :) it has preserved its natural beauty, the water is beautiful and the beach is clean. There is a mini market where you can buy beverages, but there is no sunbeds or shade (wasnt a problem for us). All natural and beautiful.

Beautiful beach but...
Aug 2019 • Couples
it is difficult to get inte the water due to the stones on the beach.
Furthermore, the car park situation near the beach is completely chaotic. It is worse than in Athens Plaka during rush hour!
A recommendation is therefore to park the car outside the village before you get to the harbour and then take a 600-800 meter walk to the beach.

Something unique!
Aug 2019
Everybody must visit it! The place is unique. But take water (or/and other liquids) with you. There is a mini-market but you have to go up and down! Also don't forger that there are no umbrellas there.

Very nice beach with black stones
Jul 2019 • Family
We stoped by this beach, since it is the only black beach on the island. It is really very nice, with a few people. You park right at the end of the road, close to the beach. There is also a small restaurant with coffee and snacks. You can also find a shower and a cabin to dress up. Also some shadow can be find under the old trees. The sea is very clean and nice, but a bit colder than elsewhere.
If you go along the path on the right side, you can walk to the next 2 beaches near by. So you will definitly find a space to park your umbrella. We just stoped for a swim and go forward.
