Karfas beach is the most popular tourist resort of Chios. It is only 5 kilometres from the town, very close to Kambos and Thimiana.

It is one of the organised beaches of the island, with deck chairs, umbrellas, sea sports and water games. In the area there is also a scuba diving school for those interested in taking lessons.
The beach is covered with thin golden sand. The waters are shallow and warm, making Karfas a favourite swimming destination for both tourists and locals.

Luxurious hotels and a huge variety of rooms to let will cover any need and any budget. Also, the nightlife is very vivid, with a lot of bars and cafes offering a wide selection of music and styles. For those interested in folklore, most of the hotels organize "Greek nights" with traditional music and dance.

Karfas is connected to town with regular buses.
