On the northern coast of the island of Ikaria, one of the small landmasses in the North Aegean region of Greece, is the small town of Evdilos. This picturesque seaside settlement is built around the ultramarine waters of a bay, its shores moulded by a paved promenade into a perfect horseshoe curve. A network of narrow streets leads away from the coast and deeper into town. They weave between the collection of orange-roofed houses that sit upon the steep slope of a shrub-covered hill, atop which people can delight in sweeping views across the Icarian Sea.
On one edge of the bay, between the various Greek restaurants and bars that stretch all the way along the charming promenade, is the Evdilos port. It is one of the two major ports on the island, the other found in Agios Kirykos on the opposite coast, and consists of a long pier that tails into the sea from the northern end of the harbour. There are no facilities at the port itself, though an ATM machine can be found a short walk from the entrance.
No main roads lead in or out of Evdilos. Instead a smaller route zigzags away from town, heading both east and west to various locations across the island including Ikaria Island Airport just under an hour away. Buses occasionally travel along this route from a stop near Evdilos port, but these services run on a limited schedule.
Currently one ferry operator offers routes from the port, offering trips to a number of destinations across the Greek swathe of the Aegean Sea. The majority of the Hellenic Seaways services sail the short way west, heading to the islands of Mykonos and Syros as well as the district of Piraeus on the mainland of Greece. Other services head north to the town of Kavala and east to Karlovassi found on the neighbouring island; all leaving from the port a few times throughout the week.
