On the west side of Chios you will find the most special and unspoiled beaches of the island. An enviable place among them is the enchanting bay of Elinda. A large and enclosed bay, a quiet and sheltered sanctuary, which during the Second World War "hid" in its dreamy waters, the legendary submarine "Papanikolis".The distance from the city of Chios is twenty-five kilometers and only five from Anavato and Lithi. The scenery around the beach is of rare natural beauty, with very high mountains and pine trees that reach the sea. Swimming in the blooming blue waters of the bay and the white pebbles of the beach is truly a unique experience and enjoyment that you should not miss.
