Chios ~ The fragrant island

Giosonas

Giosonas beach is located 5 kilometers away from Kardamyla village and near Nagos beach. It is a huge beach with smooth pebbles, wide open to the Aegean sea. The waters are clean, crystal and cold. The location is pretty quiet, with few visitors, even during the summer, making this an ideal destination for families or for those who prefer isolation.

The name Giosonas is derived from Iasonas (Jason). The legendary hero allegedly passed by this place during the Argonaut 's expedition on his quest to retrieve the Golden Fleece.

The natural surroundings further expand the beauty of this beach. A canyon is located west of Giosonas beach, maybe the most spectacular canyon of Chios island. There is also a stream that falls at the beach.
