Swimming in Southern Evia

Southern Evia features the largest number of unorganized beaches when compared with central and northern parts of the island. The swimming spots along the southern Euboean coast are markedly cleaner and more picturesque than the rest of its shore, thanks to its proximity with the open waters of the Aegean.

Without a doubt, the beaches along southern Evia’s Aegean coasts are among the region’s, if not the island’s best. Several are small, hidden coves found at the end of dramatic ravines, adding to their remoteness and exotic feel. 


Despite the fact that it lies next to the port connecting Agios Dimitrios with the mainland, the sandy beach of Almyropotamos is extremely clean and very popular with swimmers.

The quiet bay of Bouros can be found ten kilometres south of Karystos near the island’s southern-most tip. For the most part, the beach consists of fine sand, though there are rocks scattered throughout.

Another contender for Evia’s best beach was the site of a commercial for the Greek beer, Mythos. It’s a very small, hidden cove featuring turquoise waters and fine sand. A small taverna lies just behind the beach.

The long stretch of sand lining Karystos’ coast and situated next to its port is surprisingly clean and offers swimmers and convenient bathing spot. There are umbrellas on a portion of the beach, as well as free sections where you can lay your towel.

Another port-side beach, the clear waters of Nea Styra are an ultra convenient swimming spot along the town’s waterfront. Though it’s quite narrow and can be difficult to snag an umbrella if you don’t go early, the beach is long enough to accommodate everyone.
