MAVRA VOLIA BEACH - Black Pebbles beach (CHIOS)
Trip Start May 10, 2010
15Trip End May 15, 2010
We come to Mavra Vollia beach for our lunch.
This beach is very popular on the island of Chios. It is actually a volcanic beach full of black pebbles due to the volcanic activity of the past.
The colour of water here is dark blue but very clear, and the beach is wonderful.
There are actually 3 beaches one next to the other under the same name.
The black stones give the beach something special, and it is worth a visit.
Although the beach is beautiful, I am not sure if I would like to swim here.
I am fond of white sand beaches with crystal turquoise waters instead, and I believe that people who come to these beaches with all these black pebbles should be very careful with the sun protection because the black colour of the pebbles reflects the heat and radiation.
We enjoyed our lunch at a local restaurant, while watching the beautiful view.
