Destinations / Europe

Family travelers looking for the perfect European vacation should check out the exciting Evia Island in Greece. Connected to the mainland by bridge, Evia Island is a secret from most tourist crowds and sits just an hour away from Athens.

 

The island’s capital, Chalkida offers a variety of local bars, picturesque restaurants and seaside taverns. Stop by the Kastro District, a historic neighborhood to see the old Venetian Fortress, from where the area gets its name.

 

Recently, Brown Hotels opened two 4-star properties on the island, creating potential opportunities for tourism on Evia Island. Brown Beach Chalkida, located on Agios Minas beach, provides picturesque sea views, 119 stylish rooms, a swimming pool, pool bar, delicious restaurants, tennis courts, a gym, a spa and wellness center, and event spaces.

 

Brown Beach Evia Island offers 360-degree views of the Evian Gulf, 175 rooms, two swimming pools, a spa and wellness center, a gym, in-house entertainment programs, water sports, aqua park, and extended leisure facilities all wrapped up in an all-inclusive experience. Located in the seaside port town of Eretria, travelers can explore cafés, fish tavernas, beaches, and remains of temples and relics from the Ancient Greece and Roman Empire.
