About PsaraPsara is a complex of islands west of Chios and only the largest of these islands are inhabited. With a serene and special landscape, Psara is an ideal destination for trekking and visitors who love isolation.
Although Psara are already mentioned since the time of Homer, they are mostly known for their recent history. During the Turkish occupation, the locals developed an important trade activity and actively supported the Revolution of 1821. To revenge for this contribution, the Ottomans completely burnt down the island in June 1824 and slaughtered all the inhabitants.
Today tourism in Psara is not particularly developed due to the remote geographical position of the island. However, it has little tourist accommodation around the port and lovely secluded beaches to swim.
