Evdilos in Ikaria

Evdilos, built like an amphitheatre, lies on the middle of the island (but by the sea) about 35 kilometres from Agios Kirikos and about 12 kilometres from Armenistis.

The village was built around 1830 when the raids of the pirates stopped and it was safe to live by the sea again. Evdilos' heyday was when the village had to serve as the island's capital during the last Turkish occupation from 1834 to 1912. Today, Evdilos can boast of being the island's second largest village and also the second port. Here live about 500 people, many lives by fishing.

I have heard much negative about Evdilos over the years, for examples that it is an ugly and boring hole that one whatsoever should leave as soon as one have disembarked. I can not agree with it, I think it is a nice village with nice houses and a lively seafront promenade with a great many tavernas and cafes. The nearest beach is Kiparissi beach a few kilometres east of the village.

ACCOMMODATION IN EVDILOS

Although I like Evdilos I would not want to stay here overnight, and this for the simple reason that it is so close to Armenistis from here, and I'd much rather stay there.
