Evia (Greek: Εύβοια) is the second largest Greek island in area and population, after Crete. Northern Evia is situated opposite the exit of the Pagasitikos Gulf, southwest of the Sporades Islands.
Northern Evia has beautiful golden beaches surrounded by pine trees that almost reach down to the shore. It is dominated by forested mountains where you can find many pretty villages. Most harbour villages have traditional restaurants where you can enjoy the local cuisine with impressive panoramic views. Others have fishing boats where you can buy fresh fish. Villages worth visiting include Vasilika, Ilia, Gialtra, Artemisio and Orei.
The coastal village of Agios Georgios also offers unique scuba diving excursions, if you want the chance to experience a stunning world underwater. Despite the distance, it is also worth visiting Aidipsos - a lively town long-renowned for the healing powers of its natural thermal springs.
