This little green island has become something more than a backpackers paradise, its warmth hospitality and simplicity as well as its natural beauty attracts more and more quality tourism that was spoiled temporary by the international boost of the nearby island of Skopelos after a Hollywood blockbuster that was filmed there. When you first arrive, you might be a little disappointed, since the harbour Patitiri is not your typical picturesque Greek village. It was built after the earthquake in 1965, so the buildings are new. There are many nice taverns there, though, and a little beach that is clean, and a museum of interest.
Chora is an absolutely beautiful little village with small cafes looking over the Sporades island, local artists' shops and lovely rooms to rent.
In general, Alonisos is a quiet island where you can enjoy total relaxation. Of course, there are many restaurants, bars and organised excursions, but it is not a commercialised place. The National Marine Park of Alonissos is the first Nature Park of Greece, it was established in 1992.
he Marine park of Alonissos has an area of 1597 square km and includes other six smaller islands and 22 uninhabited islets. In the area of the Marine park you can swim and take photographs and is not allowed fishing, hunting and camping. The main reason of the park is the protection of the monk seal as well as many other species of birds and fishes
