Things to Do and See

The sea is the focal point for many activities on Alonissos. We have no mooring fees and many people keep boats. You can also hire boats and take boat trips.

You can take boat trips to explore the uninhabited islands. You can also visit beaches and coves that are inaccessible by land. These trips can be combined with snorkelling trips and walking tours over the islands.

We have several dive companies which offer great dives for experienced divers with the chance of night dives as well as PADI courses for beginners.

The waters around Alonissos are wonderful for Sea Kayaking and a guide is available.

We are the home of the International Academy of Classical Homeopathy – The Academy offers wonderful courses and seminars and people come from around the world to hear and learn from Professor Georgos Vilthoukas a leading world authority.

Alonissos is perfect for walkers. The interior of the island is densely wooded with beautiful pine trees and the scent of thyme and oregano is intoxicating. Olive groves and old river beds, gorges and spectacular coastlines – all are on view. Walking tours are available to take you to the islands most beautiful spots.

A beautiful natural port about half way up the island. Except for August it is a quiet, sleepy little place to visit and enjoy a tasty lunch.
