Alonissos Island Sporades Greece

 

 

What to do in Alonissos:

Popular with sail boat aficionados, Alonissos is the ideal destination for those who prefer roaming the Aegean with their own – or rented – boat. The marinas at Patitiri and Steni Vala offer all amenities to boats and the innumerable bays of the Alonissos and surrounding islands offer seclusion, privacy and warm, green waters. The winds in this part of the Aegean are always milder than in the Cyclades and this adds to the area’s popularity as a sailing destination.

Hiking, snorkelling, swimming and nature watching is also popular in Alonissos, as the unspoiled nature hosts rare species of fauna and flora.

Scuba diving is on the rise in Alonissos, as the marine park hides caves, sunken ships, ruins and a world of sea life. Special permit is required for scuba diving, obtainable from the port authorities at Patitiri, as parts of the marine park are off limits to scuba divers due to research and wildlife preservation programmes.
