Evia

Evia is the second largest island in Greece and the sixth largest in the Mediterranean. Very close to Athens, a “weekend” island but also a holiday destination for many, it is connected by a ferry boat from Oropos and Rafina, while the bridge of the island’s capital, Chalkida, holds the island open to all travelers for the whole year. From Chalkida the roads lead either to the most touristy and lush northern Euboea or to the more unknown but authentic southern Euboea. The landscape has rare beauty and enormous variations – from the 110 beautiful beaches in the Euboean and the Aegean, including the famed Chiliadou and the huge beach of Agia Anna, to lush mountains like Ochi and Dirfis, rivers with dreamy canyons like Demosaris Gorge, dense forests such as Platanias and Steni (with also has a Ski Center). Atmospheric villages such as traditional Kymi, Karystos with Kokkinokastro, Limni with its natural harbor, Rovies with plane trees, Edipsos with its thermal baths, Eretria with the archaeological museum, the temple of Apollo and the house with mosaics, the desolate villages of Kafirea and of course Chalkida on the Narrow of Euripos with its highly interesting Archaeological Museum and the lively nightlife are just a few of the many charming places of Evia. The mysterious Drakospita at Styra and Mount Ochi, the Lihadonisia, the “twin” Venetian towers of Mytikas and the monasteries of St. John of Russia, St. George of Elias and Galatakis. In no way all of these exhaust the sights the island has to offer which will cover the interests of every visitor.
