Glyfa is a charming village on the seafront between Volos and Lamia
. Glyfa is known for being a nice place for relaxing and peaceful vacation away from the stress and noise of modern city life. There are nice hotels, cafes and tavernas that serve fresh fish. The village beach is sandy and awarded with "Blue flag" for its clean blue waters. The beach is popular among locals and tourists and many enjoy it during the summer season.
In the sea in front of Glyfa lies the north end of Evia
island (the second largest island of Greece). Ferries travel regularly between Agiokampos (Evia) and Glyfa. Due to the mountainous terrain Evia is uncomfortable and slow for travel by car. The ferry from Glyfa to Agiokampos is recognized as popular and preferred way to reach the north part of Evia from the mainland.
