Firs and tamarisks, imposing mountains and endless beaches, fish and game, dragon houses and lighthouses, thermal springs, old monasteries, waterfalls, ravines, stone-built guesthouses, the Cavo Doro Cape … and the friendly and affordable town of Chalkida with its endless promenades by the sea.
Yes, Evia – often mistaken as part of the mainland because it is connected by a bridge – holds the whole of Greece within its shores!
North, south or central? Whichever route you choose, touring Evia will be a delight. To the north, you’ll find fragrant pine forests, old monasteries (such as Galataki and Osios David), the beautiful settlement of Limni Evias, the Drimonas waterfalls and the thermal springs of Edipsos. In central Evia, there is the alpine landscape of Dirfis.
Sumptuous beaches dominate the northeast, along with the medieval towers at Messapia and the Byzantine churches at Avlonas. To the south, discover the land of the winds with the enigmatic drakospita (dragon houses), the Ohi mountain range and the enchanting Dimosaris Gorge, and visit the archaeological treasures of Eretria and the medieval castles at Aliveri, Stira and Karistos.
