Beautiful beach, careful of dogs
Sep 2020 • Couples
Hemmed in by high mountainsides, this is a beautifully situated beach of silvery sand and small pebbles. Access is by a choice of two long and steep dirt tracks from the main road. They are a similar length and steepness (around 7km and 500m altitude decent) but of the two, it’s the first one you come to (if travelling from Kymi) that is definitely the more navigable. Even so, you’ll need a decent car, preferably 4x4, or you can walk it (around 90 mins each way for a keen walker).
Our main surprise was that when we arrived down by the beach we were greeted by a pack of barking dogs. They were just roaming freely and even though they didn’t hurt us, the experience was scary.
The beach itself is very scenic and good for bathing. The shore slips quite steeply into the sea. Tsilaros Beach is a pleasant 20 minute walk away, and you pass it if taking the suggested track from the main road, so the two can be combined well on a day out.

best beach in Euvoia
Aug 2020
Although tuff way to get there (off road) but definetly worth it-one of the best beach in the island with possibility of water sports, snorekling, kayaking (to get to hidden beach next to) and beautiful sunset. Perfect fot whole day trip.

One of the best beaches in Euvoia
Aug 2018 • Couples
The beach is awesome, the landscape is even better. The only bad thing is the road. The last 15 minutes need, for sure, a 4X4 Jeep. But is a place must-visit if you are in Northern part of Euvoia.

A hidden gem!
Jun 2018 • Friends
We visited this beach in June it is a hidden gem! Crystal clear waters, a beautiful swimming spot and that is very private and quiet. You can only access this beach by using a four-wheel-drive as the road is quite rugged and steep. if you can get there would highly recommend as a day trip!

October 2017 some days after heavy rains.. Thought to be an exquisite beach , but.....
Oct 2017 • Couples
The unpaved road is among the worse I ever crossed..About 15 huts and motorhomes ( without a licence) servicing for summer vacations the local people from the neighbouring villages ..Alot of pooh-pooh by the cattles around..! Also a swamp on the road 300m before touching the beach...with possible mosquitos etc..during summer..
Amazingly a place for ...hermits..!

A hidden paradise
Aug 2017 • Friends
Probably the most beautiful in Evia island. Access is possible with a durable off-road vehicle (about 7km challenging gravel road) or by hiking, using the old road (6km path length, 560m elevation). The beach has no leisure facilities; this adds to its natural beauty. However, it is absolutely essential that you carry back with you any trash you have, as garbage trucks cannot reach the beach. The orientation of the beach is west which offers one of the most beautiful sunsets you've ever seen as well as protection of the north wind which is usual in the area. Also, the complete absence of light pollution offers a spectacular view of the night sky. During the last years more and more people are visiting the beach especially during July and August and the beach gets crowded some weekends. The last 2 years a small beach bar is offering drinks and snacks during the summer. Special request to all visitors: please avoid starting fires on windy days and be extra careful with your trash; the danger of ruining this amazing place is high!!

This is one of the most underrated beach in Greece..Probably because the road is quite challenging..but like other undeveloped places, u never know what to expect until you get there.. definitely worth going for coz it's literally a paradise.
