Chiliadou

Maybe the most famous beach in Evia island, especially for free campers and nudists. Chiliadou is located on the eastern, aegean side of the island of Evia. The beach is seperated into two parts by a large rock. The northern end of the beach is a designated popular nudist beach that has been the center of nudism in mainland Greece for the last 40 years. At the north end of the nudist beach, before the cave, there is a steep footpath, which takes you above and around the mountain to another beautiful virgin secret beach with two sea caves, one on each side.

Its name comes from the small church near the beach. It is sandy with pebbles beach with crystal-clear blue waters. The water is shallow at the beginning, then it deepens sharply, so you should be careful, especially if you have small kids. The nature around the beach is amazing. Forest comes down to the shore, and huge rocks make for quite a scene. It is a northerly oriented beach and is often exposed to strong winds. It's good to be avoided when north winds blow in the area. Although free camping is prohibited, the beach is an attraction for many campers. Part of the beach is organized with umbrellas and sunbeds.

During the summer months and especilly the weekends the beach gathers lots of people and it may be very difficult to park. The drive to the beach is quite interesting as the roads are exceptionally narrow with lots of turns. In the area there are taverns, snack bars and hotels.
