Marmari - Evia Island
View Marmari, South Evia, Greece  
  GENERAL INFORMATION
 
Marmari is located in the southeastern tip of the island of Evia, within a distance of 118 kilometers from Chalkida and you can get there by following the motorway that leads to Karystos. You can also get there by ferry boat starting from the port of Rafina. The view of the mountain dominates the landscape and is ideally combined with the deep blue of the nearby beaches overlooking the Aegean Sea and the Evoikos Gulf alike. Marmari was named after the high quality green marble (“marmaro” in Greek) that used to be extracted from the surrounding mountains and was used in antiquity, all the way to the Roman age, to decorate buildings and temples. The people of the village are mainly occupied in agriculture.

The favourable spot in which Marmari is placed, offers extended stretches of sand to sunbathe and swim. You have the ability to choose between crowded cosmopolitan beaches to more secluded, almost isolated ones. Due to the winds blowing in the area you have the ability to try wind-surfing or sailing, particularly in the complex of islets called Petalia. The weather conditions are favourable for those who enjoy fishing and its rich bottom of the sea is ideal for diving, attracting lots of enthusiasts of submarine explorations. Later on you can visit the traditional taverns located by the seaside in order to enjoy fresh seafood or the local specialty dish called “goglies”, which is basically a type of pasta blended with milk.

The location is the place to be for those who enjoy hiking. In particular, the route starting form the springs of Dimosaris river and ends at the beach of Kallianos, has been characterized as a place of “great ecological and biological significance”. As you will be crossing the beautiful canyon you will have the opportunity to see the village of Lenosaioi, some centenarian plane trees and a few small waterfalls. In the southeastern side of Marmari you can also visit the village of Agios Dimitrios, only 30 minutes away, and from there to follow the mountain path that leads to the forest of Mpoumplia and admire the magnificent view of the valley.
