AGIA FOTINI BEACH Settlement CHIOS

Overview

Continuing on the main road, further down to the left, is a small road that leads to Agia Fotia (Saint Fotini). According to tradition this chapel was built on a Vato, a bushy area. The story is that for many nights, the villagers of Neochori saw flames leaping from these bushes. When they finally ventured to this area, they found an icon of Saint Fotini laying there. So they built the chapel on this very spot and every year, on August 12, the day the icon was discovered, they hold a festival in celebration. Further on we come to the shore of Agia Fotini, a beautiful pebbled beach with clear, blue -green water. The area is charming and abounds with traditional taverns, rented rooms and various shops for the visitor's convenience.
