All colours of pretty rocks on show, but for the best selection crawl through the cave at the far end, also admire the contorted rocks there. Great cafe on the headland above, cool music and breezes...
We came for a day to kayak and snorkel and laze around the beach and to our surprise scuba diving was also on the menu. For us snorkelling had been the bees knees but our first scuba lesson with Hector took it to another level....More

You have to use the public transport from Chios port to Mesta village, taxi is expensive for that route. The bus needs about 1 hour to reach at Mesta. From Mesta to Apothika is 4Klm and you can find a Taxi at Mesta or you can start walking there and hitch-hyke the first car that you meet. Locals are stopping for hitch-hykers and there is no safety problem. But generally remember that the best way to explore Chios is by renting a car because public transport is bad at the island..
