Gulf of Euboea

The Gulf of Euboea or Euboic Sea or Euboic Gulf (modern Greek: Ευβοϊκός Κόλπος, Evvoïkós Kólpos) is an arm of the Aegean Sea, nestled between the island of Euboea (northeast coastline) and the Greek mainland (southwest coastline). Trending diagonally northwest-southeast, the gulf is divided by the narrow Strait of Euripus, at the town of Chalcis (Khalkís). The North Gulf of Euboea is about 50 miles (80 km) long and up to 15 miles (24 km) wide, and the South Gulf of Euboea is about 30 miles (48 km) long, with a maximum width of 9 miles (14 km).
