Photos are divided into three geographical locations

  1. South Evia beaches, Aegean side.
  2. South Evia beaches, South Evia bay
  3. South Evia beaches, Paximada area in Karistos bay.

South Evia beaches are a favorite weekend destination since they are all located in a relatively short distance to Athens. Aegean side beaches are hit by usually tall waves due to strong north winds, yet they are the best solution in south wind weather conditions because of the amazing calm sea and the beautiful landscapes you will see on your way there.

On the contrary, South Evoikos beaches are usually very calm, even with north winds (with Megali Ammos being the exception) and most people prefer them since they are easily accessed. Paximada beaches, although very close to Karistos city, are a good choice for those looking for nice water, isolation and no waves.

Megali Ammos beach sea, at Marmari, South Evia island.

South Evoikos beaches and Paximada are located close to Marmari village (1 hour boat trip from Rafina’s port) with the exception of Almiropotamos which you may reach from Stira (or Styra) village (45 minutes from Agia Marina port). Aegean side beaches are again closer to Marmari with the exception of Mesoxoria/Tsakaioi beaches which are closer to Stira village.

Megali Ammos beach in Marmari is considered to be surfers paradise because of strong winds, low wave and the narrow sea passage between the beach and Mikros Petalios island. If you go there and weather conditions are suitable for surf, you will see many European surfers who based on wind predictions and arrive there on the night before!
