Vroulidia beach on southern Chios
Vroulidia beach is almost as far south as you can get on Chios. It is a nice beach with small pebbles and beautiful surroundings. The beach is found 33 kilometres from Chios Town, 9 kilometres from Pyrgi and 5 kilometres from Emborios. There is no bus service to Vroulidia, so you have to get there with your own vehicle. Above the beach there is a parking lot and from there a path leads down to the beach.

There are rarely many people on the beach, with the exception of weekends when residents of Chios Town drive here to sunbathe and swim. There are no sunbeds and umbrellas to rent and there is very little shade. Fortunately there is a canteen above the beach where you can seek shelter from the sun.

Surly it is beautiful!
