A BOAT TRIP FROM GALINI
In front of Kamena Vourla, on the western side of Northern Evia, lies Lichadonisia, a complex of small islands which locals call the “Greek Seychelles” and are an ecologically protected area, once inhabited by a few residents, but now deserted.
This truly paradise place consists of seven islands and islets. The biggest islands are called Stroggyli and Manolia, the middle Mikri Stroggyli, Steno and Vagia and the rest called pontikonisia. Manolia island has an organized beach. There’s a church also in one of them and in the past weddings were made there.
The complex was formed by an earthquake in 426BC. The cluster of islands is a creation of lava dated to the prehistoric era. According to Greek mythology, the islands were shaped by the body of Lichas who was killed by Hercules and thrown into the sea. From the pieces and his blood were formed the Lichades islands!
