Holidays in Alonissos ...
I have visited Alonissos some years ago and since then I keep mentioning it to my friends as one of the best places to go for a relaxing vacation. What's special about Alonissos is the beautiful nature and the great hikes that you can do, usually ending up at a magnificent beach! The hike that I liked most is the one starting from Kastanorema and ending in the beach of Agios Dimitrios. Keep in mind that the island doesn't have a lot of beaches, but you can easily find one for every possible mood. Kokkinokastro is by far the nicest beach, but you are highly advised to visit other places also!
Back then, we had booked a one day cruise to the sea park of Alonissos close to the uninhabited islands of Psathoura. We had a dive there and it was thrilling! The water was so clear and we were swimming side by side with a Mediterranean seal!
