Hire a boat and enjoy the crystal clear waters of Alonnisos. You'll find a fantastic blue cave to explore - get there for 11am as the sun only catches the cave in the morning. There's also a ship wreck to explore and if you're lucky...More

Weather you are a sailor, a diver or just a traveler, Alonissos is incredibly beautiful and has an amazing variety of marine life! I cannot find anything wrong with Alonissos at all! Especially if you love nature! 100% worth a visit

Diving in the National Park is great, the only draw back is that the entire park isn't open to diving, only 14 different sites. These sites are great, loads of fish, and different types of diving.
