Apothika Beach

You are a nature lover and prefer an undisturbed place where you can fully concentrate on yourself and enjoy the incredible beauty of the environment? Then you should spend a day at Apothika Beach on Chios – one of the rather unknown bays that nonetheless will captivate you.

A distance of 4,5 km separates Mesta and Apothika  in the South-East of Chios.  Being totally isolated and peacefully situated, this beach invites its visitors to relax on white-shining pebbles in a pleasant privacy. Even the nearest road to that location stops 100 m before. That means the last part of the way to the bay has to be followed on a foot path.

Once you arrive on the stony surface of Apothika, you can marvel the transparent sea which shimmers in all shades of light blue and entices you to a bath in the water.  In case you rather remain dry, we suggest you to take a walk along the shore.  With a little luck, you will find some fossils of leave between the bright stones.

On the end of that beach, a port harbors some smaller boats and a cantina provides you with a refreshing drink or a snack. Even umbrellas and sun beds can be rented – but only a few are available, therefore the almost unspoiled atmosphere is not destroyed.

On some days you will maybe see some Kayaks out at the sea. They are leased for an affordable price for locals and tourists. Also for Scuba divers this beach got more and more a secret tip, because the impressive underwater world is attracting.

Moreover, you can explore some small caves and secluded bays which are only reachable when you are starting to walk in Apothika through the shallow water to these hidden spots.

But don’t worry – although Apothika Beach has clearly its advantages, it is still an insider for all who are looking for a quiet place to spend a restful time next to the emerald Aegean Sea and protected by hills and green vegetation.
It is definitely worth to discover this special locality with all its benefits.
