Enjoy Beautiful Towns in Alonissos!

There are some beautiful towns in Alonissos Island. The most beautiful towns are at the south of the island. Among those towns are few beautiful dwellings on the interior of the southern part of the island and on the coastal areas. Some of them are white towns and they hang on the green heights beyond the coastline.

The beautiful Patitiri Town or Patitirion is the capital of the beautiful Alonissos Island and it is beautiful by nature. The town is in on the Bay of Alonissos on a naturally beautiful area at the southeastern coast of Alonisos. It takes its Greek name, which means "pressing of wine" from the past prosperous wine production in the 1950s, which primarily was dependant on grapes.

It is the head of Alonissos Municipality, which includes the islets of Kyra Panagia, Adelfoi, Gioura, Peristera, Skantzoura, Piperi and Psathoura. Hydrofoil and excursion boats run from the beautiful Patitiri Town to Agios Konstantinos, Volos and Thessaloniki as well as the islands of Skopelos, Skiathos and Skyros.

The town is small and it suffered an earthquake that damaged many parts of it in 1965. However, the municipality reconstructed different parts of it. Constructions still seems to be running in many parts of the island. Watch the video at the bottom of the page.

Many of the roads in the town are old and the two main roads of Pelsagon and Ikion Dolopon are respectively at the left turn and the right turn from the harbour. The traditional thoroughfares are donkey paths that reach more than 2 kilometres in length in the old Alonissos town at west of Patitiri.

At the south of Ikion Dolopon is the National Bank of Greece with ATM. At the north of it is the Police Station, while the port police is on the quay, which lies at the centre of the waterfront. There is stone stairway at the west of quay that leads to the Historical and Folklore Museum of the Northern Sporades.

The museum started by the Greek family of Angela and Kostas Mavrikis. It has findings from Alonisos and the nearby islets, photo collection, horseshoe shop, antique nautical map, pirates' exhibition and a café at the top with views over the harbour and the beautiful Aegean Sea. Kostas Mavrikis has also a book about the development of the beautiful Island of Alonisos.

Ikos Travel offers excursions to the Blue Cave and the islets of Peristera, which its name is the feminine for of pigeons and is known as Xero and Aspro at the east and Kyra Panagia, called also Kira Panayia and Kira Panagia at the northeast of Alonisos Island.

Alonissos village is on the south of the island, west of Patitiri. It has beautiful views with its stepped winding alleys and the longest old donkey bath that begins from the main road to lead down to the beautiful beach of Megalos Mourtias, and some other donkey paths run to the beautiful Vithisma and Marpounta beaches at the south.

The main road in Alonisos Island cross it from Patitiri to the north to reach Gerakas, which is about 17.7 kilometres and it takes about 32 minutes drive. Here is Gerakas Marine Research Station. From this main road and a short distance north of Patitiri, a sub-way goes to the beautiful village of Steni Vala, the home of Kostas Mavrikis.

This is a small fishing harbour about 10.2 kilometres from Patitirion and it takes about 15 minutes drive. There are two beautiful beaches here. One of them is Glyfa beach above the beautiful village and Agios Petros below it.

The sub-way leads to the beautiful beach of Agios Petros down of the beautiful village and to the beautiful beach of Glyfa above it. Ikaros Camping lies between the two beaches.

The sub-way continues to the north to reach the beautiful village of Kalamakia where the beautiful beach of Kalamakia lies and the road passes this area along the eastern coast to the beautiful beach of Agios Dimitrious with its stretched sand and continues to stop at the wetland.

These are beautiful pebble and sand beaches on the eastern coast of the beautiful Alonnisos Island, with some rocks on the shores. The beautiful Kalamakia is about 11.3 kilometres from Patitiri and it takes about 17 minutes drive. The other beautiful beaches on this coastline are the first beaches to reach from beautiful Patitiri Town.
