Apothika was a wonderful surprise. Crystal clear waters ideal for swimming and especially snorkelling. The bottom is partly sandy and partly rocky and therefore one can came across octopuses, morays, nudibranchs and a lot of other beautiful creatures. If you rent the canoe you can explore the other smaller beaches and caves that are on the same bay. You can climb the rocks that form natural steps and dive from higher points or you can even go scuba diving. There is a diving school and you can even get scuba diving lessons, if you haven't done it before! I did it last summer and it was an once in a lifetime experience. There is also a cantina with beautiful view and although it sells the basics, they also make margaritas!! After a day of swimming and other activities you can enjoy the amazing sunset resting on one of the cantina hammocks with a margarita cocktail...and that is all-in-one!

We have been coming to this beach for years and now an enterprising business has set up on a small hill just above the beach.
The beach itself is pebbly with a small harbour at one end and cliffs along its length. There are fossils of leaves to be found at the far end.
The cantine sells drinks and snacks. It is also providing a few umbrellas and sun beds. Not many, so it is still probably wise to bring your own shade.
Best of all are the kayaks at €7 per hour. We took two out this morning and had great fun. Beyond the end of the beach you can go round a small outcrop to discover caves and new inaccessible bays.
We will certainly be back and I wish these folks good luck with their new venture.

Driving down the road to Apothika beach is a discovery trip in its own right with promising images of the bay. Once arrived there, it is like paradise and the canteen up the small hills take your orders and brings them down in the most original and efficient way. It was the nr. 1 rated beach by our children and ourselves

In the middle of a rocky landscape, apothika beach is undoubtedly the place to be.... In this clean sea water swimming becomes an unforgetable experience! Apart from swimming, apothika is a beach that can satify all tastes. You can either choose to have an adventurous experience of scuba diving with Hector (an unforgetable, talented and funny instuctor) or enjoy your coffee and the perfect view of the bay from the cantine overviewing the beach....Please note that the cantine is also eco-friendly since all elecricity used is produced by its own photovoltaic panels.

A beautiful beach with crystal clear waters and a cantine where you can enjoy your coffee or beer with an incredible view overlooking the bay! You can also try scuba diving there with friendly and experienced instructor Hector and discover the underwaterworld that will fascinate you. Overall a great experience and a must-see place, maybe the best beach on chios island

Beach + kayaking + amazing beach bar (so laid back with amazing music and view) make this an above average,alternative style destination in a very family oriented island otherwise (although very beautiful).

Situated in one of the most beautiful,chilling and not so crowded beaches in Chios, Tortuga is a beach bar that you'll love! With a breathtaking view of the Apothika bay and very good music (as well as very good casual food menu) is an experience that will definitely stay with you. I can't wait to visit it again next summer!

Nice little beach in a wind protective bay with crystal clear water.
You find free of charge umbrellas and sunbeds if you arrive early enough in the morning. Well, the Greeks and the tourists are not that ”early risers” so our experience is that you find them available at least until 10:30 am, even in August.
A smart lift system between the beach and the bar on the top of the hill, makes it possible for the girls working at the beach, to offer an efficient service with drinks and food.
