Swimming in Alonnisos

You can divide the beaches on the island roughly as those on the southeast coast on those on the northeast one, and all are very different from one another (look at an Alonnisos map to get the idea). Some have a taverna or two offering food and drink, while others are totally isolated. Most beaches can be reached by car, while some can be reached by boat from Patitiri.
 


The last in a row of beaches on the northwest coast that can be reached by land. The difficult drive there is balanced by the beautiful scenery. This is a stony beach with a more rugged look beautiful in its own way, well-appreciated by adventurous nature lovers.
