Built amphitheatrically on the slopes of a hill, in the north of the island, Evdilos is the second largest port of Ikaria. The port serves mainly the north and west part of the island and connects it with the port of Piraeus and the rest of the Aegean islands. The village has grown around the harbor and offers excellent views out to sea. It is the former capital of Ikaria and a relatively new village, built after 1830 when the fear of pirate raids came to an end. The picturesque village has dazzling alleyways and old but well-preserved two-storey mansions covered with ceramic red tiles. The houses are harmoniously tied to each other and have beautiful courtyards, filled with colorful flowers. Even the newly built houses follow the traditional architecture, fact that reveals the love of its inhabitants, to preserve the character and elegance of the settlement.
One of the most beautiful parts is the port. Around the harbor, the visitors can find mini markets, shops, cafes and several fish tavernas, serving fresh locally caught fish. Although Evdilos is a small village, offers good tourist facilities with a good choice of accommodation options. The village itself has only a small pebble beach near the port. So, it you would like to swim, you have to visit one of the nearby beaches such as Kampos, Flas and Kyparissi beach. Evdilos is probably the most picturesque village of Ikaria and it can be the ideal base for exploring the north and west part of this stunning island.
