Alonissos is the ultimate destination for a relaxing vacation in nature. It is one of the Greek islands that will give you unforgettable images of beauty and relaxation in idyllic landscapes. Known as a green paradise with beautiful beaches and pine trees that reach the sea, Alonissos is one of the islands of the northern Sporades. It is a refuge for rare birds and especially the Mediterranean monk seal Monachus-Monachus.
A visit to the beaches of Agios Dimitrios, Chrisi Milia, the sea park, home to Monachus Monachus seals, and the Alonissos Underwater Museum, should be among your top priorities.
Palio Chorio is the old capital of Alonissos. Sitting on the top of a hill overlooking the Aegean Sea, Chora is the best place to visit in the island. The narrow paved streets, the stone-built houses full of flowers, the picturesque courtyards and the stone-roofed churches enchant every visitor. The highest point of Palio Chorio is "The Castle". Alonissos was plagued by piracy and it was built by the inhabitants to prevent attacks. From this point you can gaze at one of the most beautiful sunsets.
