Dafnis Nerotrivias beach in Evia is 110 km from Athens and 32 km from Chalkida. Its transparent turquoise waters and the pines that reach the sea make it one of the most beautiful beaches of Evoikos.
The beach stretches for about 2 km and is “divided” into two parts. You will meet the first one when you arrive and it is just below the road while for the second one you will either walk through the beach or drive a few meters and even go down the steps of the restaurant that is just above the beach.
In fact, the beach of Daphni is part of a beach of several kilometers that starts from the foot of Mount Kandili and reaches the beach of Politika. Dafni beach is the northern limit of the coastal route that you can do from Chalkida.
Shades of blue and green in Dafni Beach – Evia
There, at the foot of the mountain, “hides” a beautiful beach with pebbles and stone, turquoise waters, nature that reaches the sea and spring water that flows into the Evoikos.

On the first beach, in summer there is a beach bar while in the same area there are several rooms for rent. On the second beach there is a tavern through which, descending some steps, you have access to the sea. The waters are relatively cold and this is due to the mountain springs that end at the beach.
The second part of the beach (in the tavern) is definitely more impressive as the green of the mountain embraces it creating wonderful images and colors on land and sea.

It would be good to have beach shoes with you without this meaning that you can not enter the sea without them. In some places there is natural shade but from noon onwards the sun hits the beach everywhere. When the beach bar is open, it produces some umbrellas, but it would be good to have the necessary things with you. Even if the bar on the first beach does not work, it is most likely that you will find open the tavern and cafe that the same company has been operating for decades in the area and get the essentials from there.
