Everything you ever wanted to know about Euboea

Might as well make like Achilles and dip yourself head-to-heel in sunscreen—you're going to Euboea! A sizable island just off the coast of mainland Greece, Euboea features broad, sandy beaches, a mountainous interior, and more dining, culture, and entertainment than you could see in a dozen lifetimes. The capital city, Chalcis, boasts numerous museums and ancient historic sites, while the smaller municipalities around the island offer a glimpse at day-to-day life in a traditional Greek town. With a Euboea vacation rental, you'll be close to landmarks like the medieval Church of Saint Paraskevi and the ruined Bourtzi Castle.

Soaking up the sights, sun, and spas of Euboea

First things first, a visit to the beach is definitely in order. On the northeastern side of the island, the secluded Agia Anna Beach offers a pristine, sandy shoreline far from the hustle and bustle of city life. You can find a number of folks ready to supply you with kayaks or guided boat tours all over the island. For more adventurous visitors, the island's hilly interior offers plenty of hiking trails and scenic vistas. And once you're through, you can head to the northern town of Aidipsos, where you'll find countless spas offering thermal baths that date back to ancient times.

In with the old—Euboea's ancient history

After a long hike—or a long soak—you'll be all set to take in the many sights Euboea has to offer. At the Archaeological Museum of Chalkida, you can get a first-hand look at local history through artifacts from as far back as the paleolithic period, all in a charming neoclassical building. Or you can check out the Folklore Museum of Kimi, where you can learn about the myths, history, and culture of the island. The museum also has a garden amphitheatre where you can catch live music and other events.

Weather—from mild to wild in Mediterranean Euboea

Unsurprisingly, Euboea has a Mediterranean climate, with dry, hot summers and cool, rainy winters. In the capital city of Chalcis, average highs peak around 90 degrees in the sunny months of July and August. Winter temperatures are cooler, ranging from lows around 44 degrees to highs around 56 degrees in January and February. December is the wettest month, but rainfall is fairly common from October through March. Late spring through early fall is the busiest season on the island, and you'll find that prices on Euboea vacation rentals tend to be at their lowest during the colder, wetter winter months.

Ain't no mountain high enough—Euboea's geography

The second largest Greek island, Euboea is separated from mainland Greece by the narrow Euripus Strait of the Aegean Sea. It's one of the Aegean Islands, a chain that includes Mykonos, Santorini, and Crete. A short drive from your central Euboea vacation rental, you'll find plenty of sandy beaches and rocky waterfront along the island's ample coastline, while the mountainous interior features rocky escarpments and wooded hillsides, as well as mountain peaks climbing over 5,700 feet high. The north side of the island boasts rich forests, while the southern half features sparse vegetation.
