Emporios lies in the area of southern Chios best known as Mastichochoria(mastic Villages), because they are the only place of the world where natural mastic is been produced. Mastic is used to make large number of products, including chewing gum and pharmaceuticals. The guests can really experience the culture of villagers and local people. They are all friendly and there are many night folklore festivals which are organized during the summer.
Emporios is a small, leeward harbour in the South - Eastern end of Chios popular for its superb beaches of "Black Bay" and "Foki". Totally black pebbles and black sand which emerged from the currently inactive volcano of "Psarona" cover the two uniquely- beautiful beaches and the first sight of them enchants the visitors.
