The charming island of Evia, off the Thessalian coast of the Greek mainland, is one of Greece's best-kept secrets. Evia makes an ideal destination for a summer getaway. It offers every bit as much sun, sand and dramatic antiquity as the more heavily-traveled regions of Crete and Santorini with less of the annoying tourist congestion that those regions experience.
Remnants of its glorious Ionian past give Evia its distinctive character today. In ancient times, Evia was an important trade route to Persia, and its Persian-influenced architectural history is on full display in the historical ruins of Eretria and Chalcis, its principal cities in both antiquarian and modern times. Well-preserved ancient Greek and Persian monuments and temples add a healthy dose of historical awe to the breezy sunshine and warm waters.
Book Early for Excellent Deals on Evia Hotels
Today, hotels line the island's beaches, boardwalks and friendly villages. While Evia is typically less crowded than Greece's canonical and overextended destinations, summer still draws thick crowds. As with many tourist hotspots, bargains on hotels can be found during late spring and early fall without compromising much of the hot sunshine and warm waters the beaches offer during high season.
With its legendary tides, enchanting beaches and breathtaking natural splendor including majestic peaks and dense woods, Evia is one of Greece's forgotten gems. You, however, are guaranteed to enjoy a visit here that you'll never forget. Book early for the best rates and availability in Evia hotels, villas, apartment rentals and all-inclusive resorts.
