Travel to Alonissos island

Alonissos island Tour

Alonissos is the third island in the Northern Sporades islands we come across. Its surface is rocky and only Southeastern parts of the island are "smooth". Alonissos’ name is based on the ancient word "als" which means "sea", "sea-island." An ideal place for vacations and relaxation, owing to its natural beauty.
Alonissos Town (Chora)

It has a few permanent residents and is located 3km (1,9 miles) from Patitiri, which Is the island’s capital. Alonissos Town is built on a cone-shaped hill where the view is outstanding. A promenade through the narrow alleys of the Old Capital (which was almost destroyed by the 1965 earthquake, was abandoned and later reinhabited), with houses very similar to those found in Pilio (Pelion), the magnificent view, the stone-roof churches, exceed any stretch of the imagination and expectation!!!


With 3,000 residents it is the capital and port of Alonissos. It obtained its name a very long time ago, since it is here that the “patitiria” (grape stomping facilities) are found, where the renowned Alonissos wine is produced.

  • The information center of the Company for the Observation and Protection of the Mediterranean Seal. They will provide useful information, if you come across a seal at some beach, on what you should not do.
  • At the uninhabited island of Piperi of the Northern Sporades, the Monachus - monachus seal was discovered for the first time in 1976, while many European experts at the time considered it to be an extinct species.

In this environment, an aquatic park was created and is maintained, providing an ideal haven for this species of seal, which has inhabited the earth for millions of years.

Today, the number of Monachus - monachus seals in the Northern Sporades is around 300, most of which can be found on the uninhabited islands of Yura and Piperi.
