Europe > Greece > Thessaly & Central Greece > Karystos / Evia

Near Karystos are beautiful sandy beaches with taverns, boat hire etc., there is also a rental for cars, motorbikes, mopeds and bikes.

Not far away are quiet bays with sandy beaches and cliffs.

Great hiking possibilities throughout the whole year in the unspoilt hinterland with mountains (up to 1400 m high!), shady valleys, streams and springs.

The landscape is now a big nature reserve sponsored by the European Union .

Karystos is a typical Greek town with a fishing- and yacht port. The promenade is very beautiful and there are no big residential areas or hotels so we guarantee you that there is no mass-tourism! - cheap and typically Greek!
