Inousses Islands

Area: 14 sq km
Population: 700

The five islands, two miles off the northeast coast of Chios are known by the name of the largest island, Oinoussa (read e-nousa). In antiquity the island was famous for its wine (Oinos) and it is believed that this is also the origin of the name "Oinousses". During the Greek revolution of 1821, the inhabitants fled from the islands; they came back after 1827. When they returned to the island, the people had to withstand the many difficulties caused by the Turkish occupation. Because of the heavy taxes, most of the men became seafarers. Many of these managed to become ship-owners, and today some of the richest and most famous ship owners worldwide come from this small island. Oinousses has also one of Greece's major maritime schools.

There is a small hotel, a few rooms to let, cafes, taverns, and many pleasant beaches. There a boat with frequent service from the city of Chios to Oinousses and during the summer many travel agencies organize various excursions to the islands. These excursions often include visiting some small coastal villages, making the trips an excellent combination of sea, sun, and greek food.

Mykonos Island


Ιt is the cosmopolitan center of the Cyclades Complex. Its reputation has spread during the last years due to its unique landscape, its archaelogical sites, its cosmopolitan environment and its magnificent beaches.

White-washed, cube-shaped houses are scattered all over the island, narrow streets in the town, chapels and picturesque tavernas hide among art galleries and stores selling jewellery, souvenirs etc.

Trends that sweep through the international scene are born in the intense nightlife of this modern resort.

An island of tempting and tempestuous reputation such as Mykonos, with high tourism and a rather superficial lifestyle, inevitably has both fans and critics.

But even the most unsuspecting visitor immediately realizes that Mykonos is not only a crazy “bon-viveur”, but also an attractive, picturesque island with white Chora aside the crystal-clear blue waters of the Aegean Sea.

Direct international charter flights and regular domestic flights from Athens serve frequently, during summer, the airport of Mykonos.

Because it is so famous, Mykonos gets really overcrowded during high season but for those who enjoy the crowd, great fun and all night long entertainment, Mykonos is the ideal place for holidays.

Have a wonderful time...
