IMPORTANT: **2 SPOTS LEFT FOR 2 GIRLS** (I envisaged this trip as diverse and I’d love to add 2 girls-this will create a perfect balance) Hello travellers!😁 I am Sara, your travel buddy to be! I am planning an unforgettable experience in the most unexplored island of Greece, Evia! Despite being the second largest island in Greece and the sixth largest in the Mediterranean, its wonderful white sand beaches, renowed monuments, delicious local food, and majestic mountains are yet to be explored. THE HIGHLIGHTS ✨ We are heading to the South side of the island, in the picturesque fishing village of Marmari. Here we will visit the world-renowned beach Megali Ammos with its unique strip sand formation in the middle. The beach attracts thousands of visitors every year and has been featured in National Geographic as the top destination for wind and kite surfers! In 15' drive we can reach the main town of South Evia, Karystos, with approximately 5000 inhabitants. We will hike the Mount Ochi and discover the ancient Dragon houses, we will admire Castello Rosso on top of the town, and we will enjoy traditional dishes under the sunrise. We will explore the magnificent hidden beach Archampoli just as the reward after climbing the gorge that leads up to it. And these are only the highlights of our exciting trip!

A LITTLE ABOUT ME πŸ‘§ I am an energetic person who loves meeting others and make them laugh. I am excited to show you around and I always have a plan or two. I created travel itineraries for family and friends and it came naturally, so one day I said wait a moment I wanna do this more and more! About the desination: a friend invited me for a spontaneous weekend in 2021 and I fell in love with the place on first sight. Since then, I visited many times, I invited friends and family to show them around, I even worked remotely from Marmari for a while. That is why, I am incredibly excited to share with you all the beautiful natural surroundings of South Evia! I imagine the trip as a combination of adventures in nature, chill moments at the beach, and a warm atmosphere between friends telling jokes and enjoying time together! Lastly: a local myth says that whoever comes to Marmari once, always comes back! Let's discover if it's true for youπŸ˜‰

Details about the accommodation I would like to rent an apartment or hotel room(s) depending on availability and the group composition! Rooms will be shared, unless you prefer otherwise-I am happy to discuss your preferences (the price will be slightly adjusted in case of private rooms) P.S.: 1. According to our choice of accomodation and the number of the people joining the price might be slightly adjusted accordingly. 2. In the transportation costs we will either use a rented car or bus, depending on the day/time of the activity. Gas costs will be shared among us (we will use an app to split our joint expenses).

5/5
It was one of the most beautiful times in Greece that I have ever experienced. It was a vacation to my taste and Sara made it even better. We experienced, laughed, shared and saw a lot. It wasn't just the beaches or the hike that were great, but also the nights out in the town. It was perfect. Thanks to Sara and thanks to the rest of you who were there. :)

Trip Itinerary
1

MARMARI village

Day 1
We will meet in our house and make ourselves comfortable in the rooms. We are staying here for the coming 5 days (4 nights). Depending on when everyone arrives and what we feel like we will go to Megali Ammos beach, relax, and wander around the village. Later, I will welcome you with a freshly made dinner and we can go for drinks in a local bar.
2

Ochi Mountains

Day 1-2
On our second day we will start with an energizing hiking experience in Mountain Ochi. On top of the mountain (1.339 m.) we will see the ancient Dragon house that is built there and I will share information about the history. We will give ourselves some time to enjoy the view and take some pictures! After that we are going for a well-deserved lunch at the crystal blue beach Agia Paraskevi in Karystos. There is a beach bar there with all we need 😜
3

Archampoli beach

Day 2-3
It is time for a hidden gem beach. There is a beautiful 45' hiking that leads to this beach. This is a remote beach and we will bring snacks, drinks and umbrellas with us. We will enjoy our time here and we will head back whenever we feel like. We can have a rest and later explore the nightlife of Karystos!
4

Agios Dimitrios

Day 3-4
Our fourth day and my favorite beach Agios Dimitrios. The beach is located in the homonymous village of southern Evia, on the side of the Aegean Sea. It has crystal tirquise waters, big pebbles and white sand. We will enjoy our day here, share the best of of our trip and relax! We will have a traditional dinner all together, drink ouzo or even tsipouro if you are strong enough! Depending on your departure time next day we can go wild or keep it sweet!
5

MARMARI village

Day 4-5
It is the bitter time to say goodbyes. Depending on your travel plans, I would like to have breakfast with a view all together and either go to the beach or relax and enjoy the village. Till the next time! I have a feeling that you will make the myth come true and come back to this beautiful island!
