About eight (8) kilometers from Volissos is built, near the sea, the monastery of Agia Markella, protectress of Chios Island.
The beach is sandy and pebbled and it's main characteristic is the very cold water and the deep bottom of the sea.
At the end of the coast there is a path, which leads to the place where Agia Markella died a martyr. From this point hot water is welled out from the earth.
