Unspoiled and unpretentious, Alonissos welcomes visitors to a lush verdant landscape of pine forests, olive groves and vineyards, where dozens of dreamy beaches are washed by crystal-clear waters. This is a place of mythical heroes and ancient shipwrecks, of picturesque villages and traditional architecture. And while it is the perfect choice for relaxing holidays in an idyllic setting, there is still plenty to see and do. From fascinating local festivals and celebrations of time-honoured traditions... to hiking, biking, kayaking, and scuba diving. Highlights include the beguiling Old Village (Chora), the laid-back main town and port (Patitiri), boat trips to the uninhabited islets of the Marine Park, and of course delicious local cuisine.
