Evdilos and surroundings

Evdilos is a small village with 600 inhabitants, although it is the main port of north Ikaria. The courses in Evdilos are intended for those who prefer a more urban environment rather than a farm on the mounts. Students have easy and fast access on foot to several bars, tavernas and cafeterias as well as the sea. Evdilos, although a small village, has all the characteristics of an urban environment. In the horseshoe of the port, one can find all the life of the village gathered in one place: From ATMs for money withdraw, post office, car rentals and pharmacy to traditional kafenia (cafeterias), tavernas, places for an ouzo, a beer or a pizza… And all these by the sea. The beach of Evdilos is only 3 min on foot away, it’s clean and it is well-protected from the wind. There are also more options nearby, like the beach of Kampos, 30 min on foot.

We suggest accommodation at Hotel Atheras. The hotel offers a special price for our students. Breakfast is also served with an additional cost.
