Mourteri beach is long (over 10 km) and rarely crowded (mostly because of the length). It is facing the open Aegean Sea and it's in front of the small seaside Village that belongs to the municipality Kymi-Aliveri (two of the main cities of Evia Island).

The beach is certainly ideal for water sports, but for intermediate to advanced riders only.

Works best with North winds, ideal conditions when "Meltemi" wind blows. Many times has strong winds, as it is exposed to the endless Aegean.

Therefore this spot is not recommended for beginners, but good and experts surfers may find their Evia favorite surfing spot in Mourteri.

The spot is also recognized by the Greek surfers as a great surfing destination. When the "Meltemi" wind blows, a strong wind swell comes from the Aegean Sea and creates waves 1-3 m high!

As all the beaches bordering the Aegean, Mourteri has very clean water. The water is particularly warm and has a gorgeous, sparkling shade of blue -especially when the sun hits it. It has pebbles on the bottom.

Mourteri is one of the longest beaches of the island (with total distance more than 10 km). That makes the spot ideal for down-winders. Because of its length, the beach is always uncrowded.

The endless shore has coarse sand and pebbles and the surrounding landscape is bright green, Mediterranean.

Mourteri beach is south of Kimi, and it is located on the central part of the Aegean side of the island.

Arrival by Car, Moto, Camper Van: There are 3 routes to reach Mourteri (located on south Evoikos gulf) with your own vehicle:

The first route is by road from Chalkida. The distance to Chalkida (through Athens-Thessaloniki National Road) from Athens is 77 km and from Thessaloniki is 455 km. Mourteri is 82 km away from Chalkida (75 - 90 minutes, depending on traffic). Towards South Evia crossing Aliveri Village and after Lepoura go straight to Kymi. A few kilometers below there is a sign to Orio Village and Mourteri beach.

The second route is from the port of Rafina (on the east coast of Attica) to the port of Marmari (almost opposite from Rafina). There are daily departures all year round. The distance from Athens to Rafina is 32 km. It takes an hour and 15 minutes to reach Marmari by ship. Mourteri is 80 km northern of Marmari. Very good asphalt road without any traffic. Go straight to Kymi and 18 kilometers before there is a sign to Orio Village and Mourteri beach.

The third route is from the port of Agia Marina (on the east coast of Attica) to the port of Nea Styra (in the southwest of Evia Island). There are daily departures all year round. The distance from Athens to Agia Marina is 57 km and Nea Styra to Mourteri is 53 km. Go straight to Kymi and 18 kilometers before there is a sign to Orio Village and Mourteri beach.

Arrival by Bus: Often itineraries with intercity buses (KTEL) from Attica to Kymi through Chalkida. Then a taxi will take you to Mourteri.

Also, there are often intercity buses (KTEL) itineraries from Attica (from Pedion tou Areos which is close to "Viktoria" station of the "Electric" train) to Rafina and Styra Ports, from where you can go across to Evia by boat. Then you can go to Kymi with another bus.

Arrival by Train: The northern terminal of line 1 of Athens suburban railway (Proastiakos) is in Chalkida. From there you can take a bus to Kymi.

Access to Athens:

Arrival by Airplane: The new airport of Athens “Eleftherios Venizelos”, one of the best airports in Europe, (IATA: ATH, ICAO: LGAV) is located in Spata Town and serves flights to Greece daily from several international airlines from all over the world. You can take a charter flight, so you can carry your windsurf equipment with you as well.

The metro and the Proastiakos-Suburban railway, as well as taxis and buses to and from Athens are to be found opposite the main exit of the airport. The distance is 44 km. The bus journey takes between 35 and 45 minutes to the city centre at Syntagma (Parliament) Square (of course depending on the time and traffic), therefore the best way is to take the “Athens metro” that connects the airport with Athens and Piraeus. There are car hire agencies at the airport, in case you want to rent a vehicle.

Arrival by Ferry/Boat: If you are coming from the European continent and you prefer to take the ferry from an Italian Port, you need to head towards Italy and the Italian ports of Ancona, Venice Bari or Brindisi. Those ports have daily connections to Corfu, Igoumenitsa and Patras. If you are coming from Aegean Sea (from a Greek Island, Turkey or Cyprus) you will reach one of the Attica’s Ports in Piraeus, Rafina or Lavrio Town.

Arrival by Car, Moto, Camper Van: If you’re coming by Ferry from an Italian port, Patra is about 211 km away from the center of Athens and Igoumenitsa is about 445 km. There are some good highways a like the Corinth-Athens and the Athens-Larissa, Corinth-Tripoli and the Egnatia highway.

Arrival by Train: Train travel is not so much in fashion anymore due to the complexity of the journey through the Balkans. Rail services link Thessaloniki with, Athens, Thrace and Patra. The line through what was once Yugoslavia provides connections with Central and Western Europe. The line through Bulgaria connects to Eastern Europe and the line through Istanbul, Turkey with the countries of the Near East.

If you choose to come to Attica by train, when you’ll arrive to “Stathmos Larissis” station, you’ll get the metro Line 2 with direction to “Agios Dimitrios” and after four stops you’ll arrive to Syntagma.
