Evia island is one of the biggest and most beautiful
islands of Greece for holidays. Evia island has
beautiful beaches, archaeological sites, villages and
hot springs.
Imposing mountains and endless beaches, visit the,
“drakospita” (dragon houses), the Edipsos thermal
springs, old monasteries, waterfalls, the Cavo Doro
Cape and our city capital, Chalkida, ideal for
endless promenades by the sea.

Around Evia

In the north of the island you will find countless
fragrant pine forests, old monasteries, the beautiful
settlement of Limni Evias, the Drimonas waterfalls
and Edipsos. In central Evia there is Dirfis and its
alpine landscapes, the unique beaches in the north-
east side of the island, the mediaeval towers at
Messapia and the byzantine churches at Avlonas. In
the southern part of the island discover the land of
the winds with the enigmatic “drakospita” (dragon
houses) and the Ohi mountain range, the
enchanting Dimosaris gorge, the Eretria
archaeological treasures and the mediaeval castles
at Aliveri, Stira and Karistos.

The best beaches of Evia

There is a magnificent beach hidden behind
every turn at Evia. In the north, discover the beaches of Edipsos, Politikon, Limnionas, Kavos, Gregolimanos
and, of course, everyone’s favorite, Agia Anna –
Agkali. In central Evia you will find the famous
Hiliadou with its lush vegetation, sand and pebbles
of every shape and size and its sea cave that is just
begging to be explored.

The beach took its name
from the small byzantine church of Panagia Hiliadou
– meaning the thousandth –as, according to
tradition, this was the thousandth church built by
Empress Theodora. Here you will also find Mourteri
beach, loved by wind- and kite-surfers, Eretria
beach, Agios Merkourios, Kalamos and Korasida. In
the south, the beaches of Nea Stira, Limnionas
Stiron, Xrysi Ammos and the popular Figia will
welcome you to their turquoise waters.

The Famous thermal springs

Famous since antiquity thanks to the unique
ingredients of their waters, the Edipsos springs help
heal the body and soul. Immerse yourself into the
healing waters, breath in the sea breeze and feel
being reborn!

Chalkida, the city of the “crazy waters”

Chalkida is totally… sane, even though the waters
under the old Chalkida Bridge flow towards a
different direction every six hours. The reason for
this phenomenon? The moon’s gravity, as well as
the difference in sea level between the north and
south Evoikos Gulfs.
Fresh fish and sea food, endless promenades
along the quay with its cafes and restaurants.
