Things to do in Chios are not many. As the island is not open to mass tourism and keeps a lower profile, organized activities are few. Diving is gradually developing on the island but still on slow steps. The few diving centers that have opened in Chios island offer courses and organize trips to old shipwrecks around the coastline.
The island also offers many chances for hiking and it is crossed by many old footpaths. These hiking trails lead to secluded beaches, ghost Medieval villages and old monasteries. On your way at the southern side of the island, you will also see mastic trees, the traditional product of Chios.
