Tour No 3 : Boat Tour / Visiting the Englishman’s island

Evia itself is an island on it’s own and this is the reason why there are so many boat tour options around. One of them is the boat ride to the “Chtyponisi” or “Englishman’s” island which is a large uninhabited island just below Htypas mountain. Three sublime beaches you can swim in, walking on the island or go snorkeling are just some the activities you can do on the island.
The island was leased in 1930 by the Englishman Francis Tervil Petr (Francis Turville-Petre), hence the second name, who built his villa there. His house was bombed during the Second World War, destroying all vegetation throughout the island. Ruins of the house are still preserved for us to visit.
