Chios Town harbour is extremely large. We visited on May 30th and there were only 4 sailing yachts there. Talk of over-crowding seemed to us mis-placed, but we can see that the south side might be rough if there is a strong Meltemi. It is not an attractive place, but that is not its point. The island of Chios is stunning and amazingly varied. Lush and green to the north, there is a wonderful underground chapel, a Renaissance monastery church with some of the best frescoes we have seen anywhere, the abaodonned villages of the centre, and the "mastica" villages.

Port large enough, very choppy wind vigorous because fecth / Noisy because very frequented by Greeks and tourists in season. Some quality tavernas / Multes "bistrots" / life! Refuges of rich Turks who come to booze there with their pleasure craft under flag, duty-free in Delaware. I spent 4 years in Chios, island I love forever! Provide good defenses when it blows. All shops. Greetings to the Greeks of Chios whose I learned to taste the "Putty" at the end of the meal.

Port assez grand, très clapoteux par vent vigoureux car fecth/Bruyant car très fréquenté par Grecs et touristes en saison. Quelques tavernas de qualité/Multes "bistrots"/la vie! Refuges des riches turcs qui viennent s'y alcooliser avec leurs bateaux de plaisance sous pavillon, hors taxe au Delaware. J'ai passé 4 ans à Chios,île que j'aime à tout jamais ! Prévoir de bonnes défenses quand ça souffle. Tous commerces. Salut aux Grecs de Chios dont j'ai appris à goûter le "Mastic"en fin de repas.
