Nea Potamia is located at the eastern mountainside of Amani, 50 kilometers from the city of Chios and 9 kilometers far from Volissos. The inhabitants from Old Potamina moved there in order to not be spotted easily by the pirates.

Local celebrations are on January 17th (Saint Antonios) and July the 1st (Aghioi Anargiroi).
