Prefecture of Evia Things to Do

  • NEOS PYRGOS - Northern Evia

    Neos Pyrgos is a coastal village just a couple of miles from Edipsos, and about 12 km from OREI. The coast on the way to the village is not ideal for swimming as you see in my photos, however there is a nice sandy beach called NISIOTISA unique for swimming and snorkeling. (We came here for a picnic). The palm trees by the coast make the bay...

  • Kato Ilia

    A fellow member, greekcypriot, had mentioned we might like this place and she wasn't wrong.The only thing we didn't like about it was the very narrow waterfront road that had a drop straight onto the beach if you pulled over too far to let traffic pass! Also, we found parking tricky.Kato Ilia is the coastal village of Ilia, some ten kilometres...

  • Kimasi Beach

    Follow the road from Mandoudi, heading eastwards. You cross a substantial river where you have to stop and look for turtles and listen for frogs The road takes you to Mandoudi Bay and Kimasi beach.The countryside is beautiful, so very rural with fields of crops in every direction.We stopped for a picnic on the banks of a river by a bridge where I...

  • Drimona Waterfalls

    Somehow, we found ourselves on the road to the waterfalls at Drimonas (katarraktes being the word for waterfalls and what was on the road signs.)These are on the Sipias River and we had been told about them by our hostess and fully expected them to be dry but no, there was water. Coming from an area in England with many waterfalls, the small flow...

  • Almyropotamus

    We had stayed on the quay here, in our motorhome, way back in 1997 and remembered liking the place, so it was a "must do" on this latest trip.Still as sleepy as ever, in May, we wandered around, enquired about rooms for rent and had a leisurely lunch.We watched some folks gutting fish and throwing the waste to a nearby group of cats and ducks, who...

  • Psaropouli

  • Stomio Beach

As we approached the beach, we thought, "Ah well, a pleasant mistake!"It's a lovely beach with plenty of shade from trees at the back of the beach and a few houses in the proximity. The beach is...

    more
  • Cheromilos Beach

    A spectularly wild beach on our visit in early May. Absolutely deserted, the white stones/shingle glittered brightly in the sunlight and the waves crashed onto the beach, churning the stones up. Too wild and cool for swimming, we simply stopped and enjoyed nature, the sound and smell of the sea on a desrted beach.I believe in summer, this beach is...

  • Kakolimano Beach

    I knew there was a beach fairly close to Triantafilia Guest House but we had somehow missed the turning for it during our first three days in A. Apostoloi.
