Getting to Alonissos
Where is Alonissos? The Sporades is a quartet of island that lie off the east coast of Greece comprised of Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonissos and Skyros.
Alonissos is the third furthest from the mainland and, as it has no airport, is usually reached by ferry from Skiathos which takes charter flights throughout the summer.
Flight and ferry times do not always coincide so many holiday visitors will factor in an overnight stay in Skiathos Town.
Ferries call in at Skopelos on the way to Alonissos and the journey time usually takes about 90 minutes
Alonissos is long and thin and there is only one road along the west coast. A regular bus service runs to the main beaches or there is car hire in the main port.
Walkers will find good trails through dense woods and fine views, although there are no facilities on any of the paths and walkers should take provisions.
