|THE BEACHES OF THE ISLAND OF EVIA OR EUBOEA IN GREECE|
There are countless beaches on the island of evia. In general, you can say that the beaches on the eastern side of the island are steeper and that the current is also stronger here than on the west or the south side of the island. The beaches are usually also not organised and there is no rescue brigade or supervision. Keep this in mind if you are not a very good swimmer and don't wander too far off the coast.
The beach of Alikes lies not far from the capital Chalkidi. In the summer you can rent umbrellas and sunbeds and there are tavernes and snack bars open. There is a long sandy beach where you can also enjoy water sports.
The beach of Edipsos in the village / spa with the same name is located in the north of the island. It is a nice beach with facilities and tavernes.
The beach of Eretria is close to the centre of the city. There are tavernes and other facilities. It is popular with the Greeks themselves. It is usually not very busy. At the beach of Eretria are palm trees.
In the cozy village of Amarynthos a bit south of Eretria you will find some nice sandy beaches where you can easily go into the sea. Around the beach are tavernas and there are accommodations for rent. A good place for families with children. The atmosphere is nice.
South of Amarynthos lies the village of Nea Stryra, where ferries depart from Evia to the mainland. It is an attractive village with a wide choice of taverns and accommodations and there are a a couple of beautiful large sandy beaches and a long boulevard which is free from cars.

Around the village of Karystos, in the south of the island of Evia, you will find a lot of beaches. To the west of the village are a lot of small and larger beaches. West beach, Gallida beach and Rigia beach are reachable after a few minutes walk, but after that there are also a lot of beaches to be found along the coast. These beaches are all not organized except for the beach that is I believe called Paximada beach (with the church of Agios Paraskevi nearby) where a small cantina is serving drinks and there is a small island with a lighthouse on it (about 10 kilometers outside of Karystos). Along the village beach Gallida runs a (quiet) asphalt road and you can easily access this beach along the whole route. It is an sandy beach and it is easy to get into the water, so also safe for small children). At around half a kilometre east of the centre of Karystos you find the 300 meter long Psili Ammos beach (meaning "fine sand"). This beach is also shallow and safe for children. It can be accessed from the main road that leads along the coast via some stone steps.
About half a kilometer from the center of Karystos on te east side lies the 300 meter long Psili Ammos beach (meaning "fine sand"). This beach also runs slowly into the sea and is safe for children. It is accessible from the main road that runs along the coast via a stone staircase. If you drive further, you will come across some other beaches of which Marmara beach is the largest. It consists more or less of three parts that are stuck together. Other well known beaches include Kavos beach and Bouros beach where on the beach you can find the beautiful statue of the centaur and the nymph. On a hill next to Bouros beach is a large dilapidated complex of what was once a large hotel with a number of bungalows. It is now completely abandoned and collapsed.
The quiet and picturesque beaches of Agios Dimitrios and Kallianos are on the southeastern side of the island of Evia. They can be reached from the junction of the main road at Marmari and via another exit. Both beaches are quite wide sandy beaches. Both of them have a small tavern (closed in May when we were there). The last stretch to Agios Dimitrios beach is only accessible by a terrain car, otherwise you will need to walk about 15 minutes to get there. The color of the sea is beautiful turquoise here.
