Agia Anna Beach

As one of the most popular resorts throughout the entire island of Evia, Agia Anna attracts thousands of tourists each year. Its long sandy beach stretches kilometre after kilometre and is backed by countless tavernas, beach bars and rooms. As is the case with Pefki, it’s better to visit during the low season if you are not fond of crowds.

Agios Dimitrios Gorge

Well-known for its rare geological characteristics and plant species, the gorge of Agios Dimitrios is the perfect opportunity for those new to canyoning. A newly-built road runs through the gorge, though a footpath within its slopes takes walkers through the picturesque village of Agios Dimitrios, passing strange layers of cippolina marble and other geological oddities until reaching the pristine beach of Schinodavlia along southern Evia’s northern coast.

Akti Nireos

Along the 12 klm. stretch between Amarynthos and Aliveri lays the Akti or coast of Nireos, named after a sea divinity before the time of his better known counterpart Poseidon. Calmer than Eretria and Amarynthos, this bathing spot features natural shade provided by the tamarisk trees backing it and clean water with a beach of course sand.

Almyropotamos Beach

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. Bars, tavernas and hotels line the road behind the beach, though quiet spots can be found.

Alykes Drosia

This long expansive beach along Evia’s mainland strip is very popular with campers and those staying in one of the many hotels within the area. It’s the perfect place if you’re looking for company and the beach itself is organised and clean.

Within the last two centuries, prehistoric settlements dating before 3000 BC have been unearthed here, as well as numerous artefacts from a variety of regions and cultures, confirming that Amarynthos was an important trading centre during ancient times. Many of the archaeological discoveries have been found on the hill above the natural harbour as well as throughout the wider area.

Archampoli Beach

This magnificent hidden beach is the just reward of those who traverse the eponymous gorge leading up to it. The large cliffs on either side combined with the deep blue-green waters add to the beaches’ beauty and remoteness.

Archampolis Gorge

One of Evia’s most mesmerising areas is the small but enchanting Gorge of Archampolis. Stretching from East to West between the villages of Evangelismos and Thymi, the gorge features sheer cliffs that plunge down into the crystal clear Archampolis stream. The area is home to several plant and animal species, as well as a variety of birds who take advantage of the numerous caves along the gorge’s route. Though the most fascinating aspect of Archampolis is the ancient city found within the cliffs. Evidence of mining has been found, though researchers are still unsure whether it was a permanent settlement or simply a mining outpost. Canyoners will enjoy the beautiful flora found throughout the area as well as the small pools left over from the stream. Anyone walking through Archampolis is bound to enjoy the gorge’s ending at its eponymous hidden beach.

Armirichi Beach

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.

Karavos Aliveri

Just south of Aliveri lies the beach of Karavos, the city’s closest swimming spot. Though it’s convenient for those staying in the area, the busy coastal road behind and view of the area’s power plant make Karavos an average beach, at best.

The beach is located about 15 kilometres from Karystos along Evia’s small southeastern coast.

Loutra Aidipsou

Backed by shops, tavernas and hotels, the beach can be noisy, though allows for a convenient dip for visitors to the well-known thermal spring capitol of Greece.

Mt. Dirfys

Evia’s tallest mountain is logically also the best spot for mountain climbing throughout the island. Reaching 1743 m., the climb to its summit is considered more of a challenging hike, and its unique position between the Euboean Gulf and Aegean Sea causes it to experience weather similar to that of much higher altitudes, causing inexperienced climbers to turn back due to conditions. Expect snow in winter and a cool climate in the warmer months.

Municipal Thermal Baths

Eighty-four individual spas along with large interior and exterior pools are housed in the newly built complex of Aidipsos’ public baths. Special customized treatments targeting the neck and limbs are also available as well as a movement therapy pool and gym.

Platana

Along the coast of this seaside village, the quiet beach of Platana is a long stretch of sand. Though the landscape is arguably less impressive than that of the other beaches listed here, the water is clean and the access is much easier than the others.

Politikon

Rovies Beach

You could be forgiven for believing you were on the shore of a Swiss Lake rather than an Aegean island while relaxing on the peaceful and scenic beach of Rovies.

Thapsa

Another well-kept secret is the secluded beach of Thapsa north of Kymi.

Thermal Springs

Varellai Beach

The seven-mile trek along a difficult dirt road is well worth the splendours of one of Evia’s most remote beaches. Varellai features deep light blue waters and smooth white pebbles along its shores. It’s a great place to go if you’re seeking solitude, though campers do set up tents from time to time. It goes without saying that there are no facilities within the close vicinity.

Its fine sand and shallow aqua waters are worshipped by many during the summer.

Dafni

Along central Evia’s tranquil northern coast, Dafni beach is a clean and calm bathing destination for those looking to take a refreshing dip in privacy. Just outside the village with which it shares the same name, Dafni beach is full of pebbles and surrounded by trees all around. There are several springs which flow into the sea from the nearby mountain of Kandili.

Hiliadou

One of the area’s most popular bathing spots, Hiliadou beach is set within a dramatic landscape of lush vegetation and backed by sheer cliffs which contrast beautifully with its blue-green waters. The beach can be reached by car or can serve as a refreshing reward as the end point of the hiking paths originating from Lamari or Stroponon Gorge.

Kalamos

Just south of Korasida is the infamous beach of Kalamos, regarded as one of the most graphic throughout both Evia and Greece. A rock in the shape of a naturally-carved arch splits the beach into two sections and adds to its scenery. Popular with campers and the young crowd, the beach is home to a beach bar and canteen.

Lihadonisia

Known as the “Greek Seychelles”, the handful of small islets across from the seaside town of Lihada are a marine playground, particularly for those who come with their own boat. The popular beach of Agios Georgios features sun loungers and umbrellas as well as a beach bar. It’s very popular with the young and gregarious, though if you’re looking for more secluded swimming, the other islets are all within swimming distance and feature extremely shallow waters.

Loutra Aidipsou

Though fairly unimpressive at first glance, what sets the beach of Loutra Aidipsou apart from others are its thermal springs which pop up here and there along the coastline. Backed by shops, tavernas and hotels, the beach can be noisy, though allows for a convenient dip for visitors to the well-known thermal spring capitol of Greece.

Marmari

Both of the coasts east and west of Marmari enjoy frequent winds suitable for windsurfing and most are organized as well.

Mt. Dirfys

Evia’s tallest mountain is logically also the best spot for mountain climbing throughout the island. Reaching 1743 m., the climb to its summit is considered more of a challenging hike, and its unique position between the Euboean Gulf and Aegean Sea causes it to experience weather similar to that of much higher altitudes, causing inexperienced climbers to turn back due to conditions. Expect snow in winter and a cool climate in the warmer months.
