Only 5 kilometers from the traditional village Pyrgi, unfolds one of the most magical and special landscapes of the island and Greece. The beach of Mavra Volia or Mavros Gialos, as the locals like to call it, is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Got the name from the black pebbles of the inactive volcano Psaronas.
Mavra Volia beach gives to the visitor a unique eerie feel. It has icy, crystal clear waters and a beautiful deep seabed which gets a unique dark color thanks to the pebbles. The tall, rugged cliffs with the alternation of colors complement due to the incredible volcanic wild landscape makes swimming there a lifetime experience.
Specifically there are three beaches on the row. The first is named Mavra Volia or black glass and the other 2 are named Foki beach. At the end of the first beach there is a canteen offering sandwiches, soft-ice cream and coffee. Then you will find a path that leads to the second and third Foki beach. In the port of Emporios you will find several traditional taverns.
