The beach of Glaroi is located seven (7) km northeast of the city of Chios between Vrontados and Sykiadas villages on the way to Kardamila. The bay is shelter for seagulls and it was named after them (glaroi means seagulls in greek). Back in the old days there used to be a quarry and mining activities were thriving. As the human activity there ceased, the sea waves took over and started smitting patiently that peculiar bay creating a small beautiful beach.
The beach is sandy with green cold waters, due to the spring that gushes inside the sea fresh water. Sand covers most of the bay, whose wild and unusual beauty, enchants and attracts the interest not only of locals but also of foreigners. The combination of the waters with the white background of the mountain that surround the beach makes the landscape magical. The beach is organized with umbrellas, sunbeds and a beach bar and during the summer months is very popular making it one of the summer hot spots of the island.
