Comment:Karfa and Chios are beautiful, but Greeks make a basic and critical mistake: They let their competitors from Cancun, Mexico, Lucca and Turkey to advertise on the Karfa Webcam. From a stand point of business, this is the equivalent of suicide for the Karfa Hotel Owners e.g. I can fly to Caccun in 3!/2 Hours but for Karfa I will need probably 15 Hours. And additionally, to get a ticket round trip to Caccun will cost me $500 and to fly to Karfa more than 3,000 eUROS. a TOURIST WILL NEVER COME TO kARFA because you people advertise your competitors sites that have greater economic advantages. Get the foreigners out of your advertising. Be competitive by advertising your land, not Caccun, Lucca or Turkey. Thank you

Comment:Karfas is a great sandy beach, with watersports. It is alot like those typical touristic beaches though, that someone might visit in any mediteranean touristic site. So if you like to "capture" the unique beauty of chios you must visit less "popular" beaches.
