Situated just off the mainland, Alonissos is surrounded by waters that have been designated as a protected marine park. Dolphins, seals, and other marine life are abundant. This is a dream vacation destination for the nature lover and offers spectacular views of the surrounding placid, clear waters.
There are multiple pristine sand beaches that are the perfect setting-off point for diving and the lush island flora and thick forest areas offer adventure-seekers a great opportunity for hiking. Alonissos is also home to the International Acadey of Homeopathy since the land is rich with a large selection of wild, native herbs.
