An island of national benefactors and iconic figures of the Greek War of Independence, Psara’s glorious history has long been immortalised by poets and painters. Its maritime strength was out of all proportion to its size: this tiny and remote rock just a few nautical miles from Chios was, by 1821, the third largest naval force in pre-revolutionary Greece, after Hydra and Spetses. The island’s heroic past is commemorated by monuments at some of its most important locations.
For anyone seeking a generous dose of peace and relaxation, Psara is a true paradise. Whether they are on a day trip from Chios or here for a longer break in the clear blue seas of the north-east Aegean, lovers of pristine beauty and authentic hospitality will find that Psara offers unique opportunities for enjoyment.
Untouched beaches with crystal-clear waters, excellent seafood, and excursions to deserted islands of rare natural beauty are just some of the things that you can experience if you choose one of the ferry tickets to Psara.
