I remember the first time I heard that we are visiting Limni I thought we were heading towards a lake because the word ‘limni’ in Greek means lake!
Anyway, on this trip we had no time to make a stop or see some friends we have here.
We only stopped for photos for seconds with the engine on!
Limni has about 2500 residents and it is 87 km from Chalkida.
It is built amphitheatrically curling around a gulf and it is a place that has visitors the year round.
Pine trees go right down the shore, and there are so many restaurants and café bars one next to the other making it a cosmopolitan spot.
Agios Nikolaos Monastery, also called Moni Galataki
(8th century structure) The interior of the monastery has wall-paintings that date back to the 16th century.
The Museum of History and Folklore.
This is housed in a traditional manor house.
The Museum of Marine Biology.
This is housed just outside the village.

Orei, with only 1.500 residents is another little fishing village very close to Neos Pyrgos with clear crystal waters and several taverns serving fresh fish by its picturesque harbour.
It also gets crowded like the rest of the coastal villages of Evia especially during summer.
We make a stop for some photos, but although there are some spots to be visited in the round are which I find on the map, it is not possible to do this today –perhaps we should come for a day or two on another trip!
- The remains of the ancient citadel (mostly the fortification walls)
- The Venetian and the Turkish Castles.
- The Byzantine Church of Agios Vasilios. It has been built over an ancient temple.
- The marble Bull, dating back to the 4th century.
HOW TO COME HERE: If you take the short distance from Chalkida through Limni is 135 kms.

The nearest beach - just 12 km - from the village of Papades in north Evia is VASILIKA.
The beach is huge and sundy with some pebbles and it is very popular.
There are many umbrellas and deck-chairs at the beach, many restaurants and cafes, and on the upper side of the coastal road there are many rooms to be let and studios.
We came to this beach when we stayed at the Forest Village of Papades.
There is a port at the very end of the coast and there are ferries that usually go to the island of SKIATHOS.
The island is just 12 nautical miles from Vasilika, but this year the ferry did not move at all from the port probably because of the economic crisis.
On another tip I am writing more about Vasilika or (Royal) as they are called.

It is a popular resort place with many fish tavernas and nice beaches.
People and tourists love it. It is usually crowded during the summer months especially in the evenings. There are many Restaurants on the side of the main road that leads to Aliveri, and Kymi, and usually you will see waiters with their orders trying to cross the main road. It can become quite dangerous because the road is usually jammed with cars on either sides, and the waitress with their orders have to pass again and again through the main road.
You will see people walking up and down on the promenade, and very often different Festivals take place by the central square of the village or next to the beach.
You can find fresh fish from the several fishing shops which are found on the main road, and locals come here to buy.
It has a population of about 4.000 people.

The main settlement is built amphitheatrically on a mountainside and has an easterly view to the Aegean.
Its beach, the beach of Agali, is one of the largest and most beautiful beaches on Evia. Its crystal-clear waters offer great swimming opportunities during the summer months and are ideal for good amateur fishing in its numerous fisheries. The minimal “light-pollution” gives you the chance to enjoy the starlit night sky.
The relatively small accommodation infrastructure is supported by a campsite in the area. The visitors can enjoy local traditional tastes and fresh fish in the tavernas (on the waterfront or the villages) surrounded by a pleasant natural environment, in an area covered in olive-groves, plane-trees and pines.
There are also a number of walking routes, one of which is the beautiful gorge of Arapi, to be explored.
Agia Anna has a Folk Museum with a rich collection of exhibits linked to the traditional lifestyle of the area.

Visit beautiful Marmari with its fishermen and farmers. Dance together to the rhythm of folk songs at local festivals; they fish, they make wine, they make "tispouro"a traditional drink, they create.
Marmari "floats" between two seas; from the southern gulf of Evia to the Aegean sea.
Its waters are crystal blue, mirroring the sky. Endless beaches bays at the shape of golden half moons, lacy coasts and rocks "formed" by the waves; images of Marmari.
Marmari has countless golden beaches - Fighias, Kokini, Kavos, Chrisi Ammos, Zastani, Likorema, Aghia Irene, Baniera, Rossa, Vasiliko, Schinodavli, Limiona, Varelei, Kaliani.
