CHIOS

The island with the medieval villages, the world-renowned shipowners, and the first natural chewing gum in the world.

It is the fifth-largest of the Greek islands and one of the eleven beautiful islands found in the North Aegean Sea. Its unique history and character differentiate it from the well-known Greek islands painted in blue and white. Villages built centuries ago stand proudly reminding of other eras, and Mastiha, a resin with exceptional therapeutic properties, has made the island known across the globe.

This website is an online place where unique ideas and concepts related to Chios find their home. Inspiration, creativity, and promotion of anything that involves Chios are found on these pages. The ultimate goal for the island is the increase of its visitors from all over the world and Greece, so it keeps thriving and offers them all of its treasures. The main idea is the creation of original and new stuff about Chios and, at the same time, the promotion of the work of others, whether it is a website for Chios, a product, an organization, etc.
