Emborios is a unique place of Chios and Greece in general. The port of Emborios, which is 5 kilometers from the central road of the southern villages, was a trading center in Antiquity which is designated by its name.
There was the settlement of Lefkonio (3,000 BC), traces of which were only recently found during excavations and are currently exhibited in the Archeological Museum of Chios. 

The beach is a short distance from the port of Emborios and features deep, crystal blue waters and smoothly shaped black pebbles. These pebbles are the result of the lava that exploded and covered the area from the nearby volcano many, many years ago.
