Evia the Island of Beauty
The island of Evia (Euboea) is the actually the second largest island in Greece after Crete. The island actually resembles an extension to mainland Greece, which it was in fact many years ago.
The main gateway to the island from mainland Greece is at Halkida. From here there is a bridge that you can cross with your car or bike. There are also ferry boats traveling to and from the island at seven different locations.
At the south of Evia, in the port of Karystos, there are ferry boats which travel to Rafina in Attica/Athens. At the north of Evia, there are ferry boats which leave from the port of Pefki and head to the port city of Volos, located at the foot of Mount Pelion.
Evia is usually divided into three parts - the north, central and south regions. Each of these contain a huge number of beautiful villages, coastal resorts and quaint towns, offering a wonderful selection of holiday destinations throughout the year.
Evia is a beautiful island to visit with some stunning beaches. It is also very fertile in terms of flourishing nature and foodstuff.
