This is the family-friendly Marpunta Resort in one of the most peaceful and quiet areas of Alonnisos
The Best Hotels in Alonissos are mostly located in Patitiri port, in picturesque Alonnisos Old Town (the capital town of the island) or close to one of the beautiful green water beaches of the island, such as Marpunta, Steni Vala or Votsi. Alonnisos is a real gem with no massive resorts or all-inclusive hotels with one of the most underrated towns on any Greek island (that is Alonnisos Old Town). Alonissos is a small island with beautiful pine tree forests and some of the clearest sea waters in Greece. It is by no coincidence that the whole island, along with its sea waters, is part of a greek government-protected area called “Natural Marine park of Alonissos – North Sporades” which is actually the largest marine park in the Mediterranean.

Alonissos belongs to the Sporades group of islands in north-central Greece in the Aegean Sea, and it’s basically the “small sister” island of Skiathos and Skopelos islands. The island does not have a massive tourism infrastructure and the hotels are mostly family-run businesses or boutique family resorts. Alonnisos has some of the most impressive turquoise sea waters in Greece which is combined with some of the most green landscapes on any greek island (mostly pine trees).
Alonissos island is not that close to Athens, and you can only reach it by ferry. There is no international airport on the island, but the closest airport you can fly to is the Skiathos International Airport and then take a 2 hour ferry to Alonnisos. Alternatively, you can take a bus from Athens to Agios Konstantinos port and then take a 4-hour ferry to Alonnisos (the whole thing can be tiring though). Most international flights to Skiathos operate only between May and October for the summer (always check Ferryhopper for the latest ferry schedules and Expedia for the most up-to-date flights to Greek islands).
I truly believe you need a car in Alonissos, even though it is a small island. There are a few local buses, but you’ll obviously be more flexible if you rent a car, in my opinion as this will give you the opportunity to explore this small gem of an island.
