Katarraktis is a seaside village of south Chios, at a road distance of 15 km from the city of Chios. Residents are engaged in agriculture and fishing.
The waterfront is ideal for walking and rest in one of the cafes or fish taverns. Taking a boat in conditions of absolute calm you can see the ruins of an ancient sunken settlement, suggesting precipitation of an ancient earthquake. If you like fishing it's a perfect place to catch octopus and crabs.
