I have been to the Black Pebble Beach as least twenty times and still marvel at its pristine beauty--on the beach and in the water. When you walk into the crystal clear water, you are stepping on black pebbles which are the result of an ancient volcano eruption. Unlike other beaches on the island, you cannot see the bottom, but... More

Very quite and relaxed beach with relatively large black volcanic stone formation. A small kiosk is available for refreshments and snacks.

It's an unorganized beach but there is a small coffe at the end of the beach. There are also good restaurants in the neighborhood bay. Beach is very interesting with black stones which was formed by the volcano which was in the sea. The sea is very clear and nice. I strongly recommend to visit this beach.

Although getting there by car was not very easy, it was really worth it. First one was more "crowded", has shower facilities and a bar, if you walk a little bit further there is a second even more beautiful beach, very long with black pebbles, the sea was here a little more rough but if you can swim no problem....

We had a great time in Mavra Volia beach even we could stay really short. The sea was the most clean sea i have ever seen, the beach side also a must to do experience !

It is not so far away from island center. Has decent black stone beach which is definitely unique. It is very nice place to spend a few hours. It has also small cafe where you can take waters, cafe etc. by the way, sea is beautiful.

A beautiful and pristine beach near Emporios. Black pebbles create a nice contrast with the crystalline sea. A good place for a quick swim but a little too uncomfortable for a longer stay on the beach.

You must see this beach in Chios. It's not an organized beach & you should bring your umbrella and other stuff if you need. There is a cafe behind of the see & you can find cold and hot drink. The emporio village is 1 min with car and a several nice restaurants there
