Almyropótamos consists of two villages, the Village and the beach of Panagia(3 km) and counts as a whole of about 500 residents. In Almyropotamos also belongs the island Kavalliani that archaeologists identified with the ancient Glaukoniso, where residents of Karystos buried the Olympic medalist Glaucus. Its name owes Almyropotamos in the Large Vein, a rich natural source of water that gushes from the limestone rocks near the beach, forming a gurgling river that pours into the sea. In the area there are also other natural water sources. The village was first mentioned in 1546, in a Turkish tax manuscript relating as a settlement of farmers from neighboring villages Zarka and Mesohoria. In the Valley of Almyropotamos paleontological research of the University of Athens from 1916 until 1966 has yielded important discoveries of fossilized mammals belonging to so-called Pikermiki Fauna. These are fossils of 28 different species of animals, aged about eight million years old (mammoth, deinothiriwn, pikermies, mastodontwn etc.). These findings which today are kept in the Paleontological Museum of the University of Athens and in the Geological Department of the University of Munich, considered internationally of the most important geological Period. In the village you can see several old stone houses, many of which have wonderful repaired, retaining their nice traditional colour, with the typical local stone. Interestingly also, is the building housing the Office of the former Community. It is a building of 1860, one of the first four elementary schools that were built in South Evia after the liberation from the Turks. The building was renovated and is a jewel of traditional architecture that adorns a gorgeous plane. The beautiful stone church of the village, Agios Ioannis Theologos is another attraction. Panagia, the seaside resort is ideal for relaxing family holidays. An enchanting closed Gulf where visitors can enjoy the crystal clear sea and its pleasures, fishing and swimming. Picturesque tavernas, rooms, walks on the beach, beautiful homes, a wonderful landscape of almond trees, fig trees, cypresses and Myrtle offer relaxation and enjoyment in the nature.

The Rocky springs of Almyromotamos is a natural attraction and a vital ecological component of the place, since in their catchment area, the large vein, live terrapins, migrating eels, ducks and other endemic species.
