As there is no airport on the island, you will usually arrive by boat from the Greek Mainland or neighbouring Skiathos.
A Picture Perfect Port
The picturesque port town of Patitiri offers a range of activities to enjoy. Spend some time getting your bearings. There are plenty of cafés and tavernas to choose from in Patriti but for an evening meal with a view head to the strip along the seafront. For a taste of the island’s history and heritage head to the Alonissos Museum which is located in the upper old town. It is free to enter and well worth a visit.
Visit Traditional Chora
Head off in the direction of Chora for a truly authentic experience of Greek island life. This old town has a distinct traditional style with cobblestoned streets and Venetian inspired architecture, making it the perfect place to explore. Be sure to sample the array of delicious food on offer in Chora. Treat your taste buds to local delicacies that have been prepared following recipes that go back countless generations.
An Island Paradise
Remarkably fertile and green for a Mediterranean island, Alonissos is a fantastic destination for ramblers and nature lovers. Embark on a walking tour through the pine forests and olive groves and explore the many coves and bays. Claim a little piece of paradise for yourself on one of the many hidden beaches and keep your eyes peeled for seals whilst you explore the caves and secluded bays.
Try Mourtias Beach which houses a charming small quay with a tree area at the back of the beach. There are also a few tavernas here which are perfect for a refreshing beverage and tasty lunch.
At Milia the beach can be accessed after a short walk through a pine forest. Whilst you won’t find sun loungers on this beach, you’ll likely have the run of the sandy bay to yourself. A swim in the crystal clear waters is the perfect way to cool off, and the black seaweed that grows here is thought to have rejuvenating properties that are great for the skin.
