Edipsos is a famous resort for spa treatment since ancient times. Here you will find 80 hot springs, rich in iron, sulfur, calcium, radon and magnesium, which appear on the surface at temperatures between 28-86 degrees Celsius. Some springs also appear on the coast where, over time, small basins have formed (in the form of a valve), in which you can sit (free) and let the heat of the water penetrate.
The therapeutic properties of these waters have been an inspiration for mythology. It is said that the Athenian goddess asked her brother, the master Hafaistos, to create hot springs in Aidipsos, Evia, so that her favorite hero and protege, Hercules, could relax after each of the 12 superhuman tasks he was subjected to. It is also said that in this story he put his tail and goddess Hera, who was the protector of the home, and demanded that these waters be warm in order to raise healthy children. Hera also advised Deucalion (the son of Prometheus) and his wife Pyrrha to bathe in the waters of Edipsou to have healthy children. This is how the Greek people were born, after the name of the couple's first offspring, Helena.
So, it is enough to dip once in the waters of the gods to revive your health.

The resort has several narrow beaches, sand and gravel beaches. The entrance to the sea is smooth. At the exit of the resort there is also a beach with fine sand.
