Alonissos

Alonissos holidays

It’s all about the simple life among the herb-scented hills and blue-green bays of Alonissos. Pine-forest walks, pretty ports and cobbled old towns are all yours to enjoy here. Bit of a beach lover? Good, because there are too many pine-fringed bays to pass up – and the island’s part of a marine park, so keep your eyes peeled for seals. As for evenings, there’s a tried and tested formula of fresh fish feasts, homegrown vino and laughing with the locals as the sun sets. Say hello the real Greek island experience…  

Alonissos Town

Nestled on a hilltop enveloped by pine forest, Alonissos Town is a sweet spot to spend a chilled-out holiday.

Marpunta

What do you get when you mix fragrant pine forests with blue-green waters and plenty of peace and quiet? The tucked-away retreat of Marpunta of course.

Patitiri

Part of the Northern Sporades, Alonissos is a tranquil island retreat. Patitiri is the island’s beating heart and the perfect place to settle in for a go-slow Greek holiday.

Beaches, beaches, beaches

Clap eyes on the coast here and you’ll fall straight under its spell. Agios Dimitrios Beach is just one example, a pebbly shore lapped by aquamarine crystal-clear waters. Chrisi Milia Beach is equally mesmerising and blanketed in sand if you love nothing more than feeling grains between your toes. For the best of both, make a beeline for dreamy Kokkinokastro Beach.

 

Explore the island

Hands up who loves adventures? You’ve struck gold here in Alonissos. The epic natural beauty of the island lends itself to stunning hikes. One of the best is the trail up a cobbled mule path to Hora, the old capital of the island. The National Marine Park of Alonissos is prime for a day trip too – take a boat out into the sparkling sea and get ready to spot dolphins, turtles and migrating whales. 

 

See the Sporades

Alonissos is part of the green-tinged Sporades archipelago, with two gorgeous neighbours – Skiathos and Skopelos. Island-hopping is easy here, with regular ferries and boat trips between all three. Skiathos Town’s buzzy harbourfront is ideal for drinks by the water, while Skopelos’ epic backdrop’s what made it a filming location for Mamma Mia!, so you can go recreate the scenes yourself.  
 

Activities

Pull on your walking shoes and hike around the island – Alonissos is home to heaps of hiking routes that wind through forests and along the coast. It’s also worth booking onto one of the boat trips from Patitiri port. You can see a different side of the island or cruise over to Skiathos and Skopelos. See all activities (1)
