Evia, the second-largest island of Greece, lies in a prominent position very close to the mainland. By crossing the two bridges that connect Evia with the mainland, one can reach Athens International Airport in just 45 minutes.
The island offers 70,000 beds in total, spread through 1,100 tourism accommodations of all categories; from 5-star resorts to self-catered villas and campsites.
The island’s infrastructure and services are accessible to different budgets and all types of holidays.
During their stay, visitors have the opportunity to discover the island’s unique natural beauty that ideally combines sunny beaches with alternative tourism activities that include hiking, mountain biking, climbing, off-road, 4X4 jeep excursions, and kite surfing.
The island’s main attractions include:
- the wide tidal phenomenon that occurs at the narrow strait of Evripos in Chalkida, where the water changes direction every six hours
- the petrified Forest in North Evia
- the Drakospita (Houses of Dragons) ancient buildings that exist since the third century BC
- Greco-Roman archaeological sites, medieval towers
- Apart from the numerous festivals and cultural events held in the villages of Evia, visitors will be warmly welcomed by the locals to mingle and taste the culinary dishes in the local “tavernas” at very reasonable prices.
- Thermal spa destination
- Since antiquity, Evia has been one of Greece’s most popular thermal spa destinations.
- The natural spring of Edipsos is among the three hottest in the world, rich in mineral salts.
The island’s climate, in combination with its crystal clear sea, places Evia as an excellent thalasso-therapy destination for tourism, relaxation, and healing.
Rovies is the ideal choice for anyone interested in refreshing swimming. It is so quiet that you even forget about the Memorandum! It is almost 105 minutes away from Chalcis on the road to Edipsos.
Upon your arrival at Rovies, you may not find the beach at once, so you could ask the friendly locals to show you the way to the beach. Rovies is not so famous and maybe that’s the key to relaxation!
Crystal clear water, coffee on the beach, and only three sunshades available to choose.
No, it is not a tiny beach, though as you may imagine. On the contrary, it is quite long!
