Mastic Island
Rich history and scenic landscapes make Chios one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Aegean. Nicknamed the "Mastic Island" because it remains one of the world's major producers and exporters of mastic gum, Chios offers visitors a chance to explore medieval villages and age-old monasteries. Start at the ancient settlement serving as the island's center of shopping, dining, and entertainment. Alternatively, make the southwestern port of Mesta your base for touring a cluster of satellite islands reachable by boat or ferry. The island is nearer to the Turkish coastline than the Greek mainland, and as a result shares much of eastern Turkey's topography of rugged crags and fragrant citrus groves.
