Alonissos is part of the complex of Sporades islands which includes Skiathos, Skopelos and many other small islands. It is well known for its unique nature and the only national marine park in Greece. From the pine forests in the south, to the wild macchia vegetation of the north and a coastline dotted with small blue coves and white pebble beaches the island is abundant in natural beauty. The old village with its little streets, shops and cafes is absolutely adorable, and the view breathtaking.

Alonissos is also surrounded by the only national marine park in Greece, and if you are lucky you will see dolphins, seals, and turtles on one of the boat trips that are arranged. The Mediterranean Monk Seal (Monachus-Monachus) is common around the island, and the Alonnissos Marine Park was created to protect these seals and other animals.

Around its shores there are many coves and beaches, lapped by the clearest of seas and backed by green hills. Inland is a scenic joy, and the network of marked trails through the varied countryside makes for some excellent walking.

Most people stay in or around the colourful little port of Patitiri, the island's main settlement has plenty of waterfront activity especially in the high season. It has its own narrow white-pebble beach and some excellent tavernas and cafés strung above the sea. High Speed catamarans as well as regular ferryboats leave daily for Skopelos, only 20 minutes away, and for Skiathos, another hour further to the west.

Some twenty minutes walk to the north of Patitiri is the delightful, and very pretty, fishing harbour of Votsi, its clear waters and pretty pebble beach backed by cliffs and pines.

Old Alonissos, high above Patitiri, boasts stunning views and is certainly picturesque. Abandoned in the 1960’s, the old houses are now largely restored and favoured by artists and writers.

Alonissos is a quiet, very beautiful island which is quite happy to remain off the main tourist path. Largely traditional, it would suit those looking for an unhurried holiday in natural surroundings, fine views, good swimming – there are many superb beaches up the east coast – and walking.
