Often mistaken as part of the mainland because of the connection with two bridges, Evia is the second-largest island in Greece actually separated from the mainland by the narrow Strait of Euripus.

With a rough mountainous range and roads that often end up to dirt tracks on the coast, Evia is far from being considered a typical tourist destination.
But there is much to see, as those winding roads end up in gorgeous hidden beaches, or even waterfalls, walking trails and gorges.
To call the beaches in Evia “remote” doesn’t sum up just how far removed from civilisation they can be. But this is what makes Evia a majestic destination way far from the crowds that other famous islands encounter every year. Not to mention that the majority of those hidden treasures can easily double as campgrounds where you can pitch your tent or park your RV. Thapsa, Mageiras, Tsilaro, Xeromilos, Vythouri, Varelaioi, Agios Dimitrios are some of them.
The shifting tides of Euripus Strait in Chalkida, a worldwide yet precise phenomenon, the revitalising thermal springs in Aidipsos, the endless hiking trails on Mount Dirfis (1.743 mt), the Ancient Greek Theatre and Museum in Eretria, the Monastery of St David and the Christian Orthodox Church of St John the Russian are some of the most prominent highlights not to be missed while you make your way in Evia from top to bottom.
Agrotourism, 4×4 off road, kite surfing, scuba diving, fishing and hiking are also offered in abundance all over the island. Only thing to know before booking is the perfect season, so you are at the right place, with the right people at the right time!
For every season, Evia has something to offer. Don’t miss the chance to explore this untouched yet rich destination, avoid the crowds and spend some quality time with locals.
On top of that, we can always arrange your accommodation in a country-style natural stone built house in Evia where you can relax, recharge your batteries, try the local cuisine and explore the surroundings in Central and South Evia.
