Limni Evias, North Evia

The beautiful seaside town of Limni is located on the west coast of northern Evia (Evoia or Euboea island) and is built over the northern usually leeward North Evia Gulf. Maybe this is the smoothed landscape and great views of the secluded bay that gave the name to this beautiful burgh.

If you visit Limni you will understand immediately that it has not only the name but also its grace as the small white tiled houses enjoy by almost all parts of the settlement a great view to the great blue waters and the nearby coast of mainland Greece while the borders of it are dominated by the lush landscape that characterizes most parts of northern Evia.
