Styra is a traditional mountain village in South Evia situated on the main road that connects the capital town of Chalkida with Karystos.
The seaport village is Nea Styra, a seaside resort with lots of tourist facilities and many modern hotel accommodations. It is located 89 km from the capital city of Chalkida and has a port that is connected by ferryboat to Agia Marina in Attica with very regular ferry schedules.
The organised beach is ideal for families with children as the water is shallow and covered with fine sand. There is also many other beaches that stretch from Nea Styra up to the area of Diliso.
The town attracts large numbers of tourists during the summer months, who come here to relax and enjoy the peaceful and natural setting. The cafes, the seafood restaurants and shops that are around the promenade in the summer offer excellent services to visitors to the region.
The region is popular with those who enjoy adventure and water sports. Many enthusiasts of inflatable boats choose Nea Styra and the surrounding sea area for their excursions as well as the small island Styra opposite the village of Nea Styra.
