Oinousses or Oinoussai (Greek: Οινούσσες), alternative form: Agnousses is a barren island some 5km from the Greek island of Chios and west of Turkey as well as a community and a municipality. Oinousses and its island chains lie in a bay area. Noteworthy perhaps because of the abundance of wealthy shipbrokers, and because of an alleged miracle, that led to the building of a monastery, it is hard to find any reason to like the island, much less stay here overnight. There are some small beaches, but they are "average" as far as tourism is concerned.


Oinousses has a school, a church and Ounousses' only square (plateia) and a small port.
