The Greek island of Alonnisos lies in the Aegean Sea and forms one of the Northern Sporades group of islands along with Skopelos and Skiathos. Skopelos is only 3 km to the east of Alonnisos. It is the most remote of the Northern Sporades group of islands and is home to the National Marine Park of the Northern Sporades which is a haven for rare birds, dolphins and the Mediterranean Monk Seal. The island is surrounded by small islands that are scattered around the archipelago and its interior is rugged. It is the perfect island for visitors looking for peace and tranquillity with lovely things to do including taking a leisurely stroll through the pine forests, olive groves and orchards.
From the port, there is ferry and hydrofoil service from Patitiri to Volos, Agios Konstantinos, and Thessaloniki on the mainland and to the islands of Skiathos, Skopelos and Skyros.
