St Demetrius: An exotic paradise of white pebbles and blue waters that often features in lists of the world’s top ten beaches. Only one part of the beach has tourist amenities, and it is so long that there is plenty of room for lovers of quiet and seclusion. There is also a taverna and a canteen for food and drink. The island of Peristera lies directly opposite.
Chrysi Milia: One of the island’s most popular beaches, with a cosmopolitan atmosphere, situated on the east coast of the island. The fine golden sand and shallow crystal-clear waters make it ideal for families with children and for snorkelling. It has umbrellas and tavernas serving excellent food and you can visit it if you choose the ferry to Alonissos.
Leftos Yialos With pale sand and white pebbles, green pine trees, and clear turquoise waters, this beach has a unique exotic beauty. With a view of a pair of small islands known as the “Two Brothers”, its tavernas and beach bars are open from morning to night and it is one of the main stops for tourist boats from Skiathos and Skopelos.
Vithisma: A hidden paradise in the south of Alonissos distinguished by its fine dark sand and black pebbles, crystal-clear emerald waters and a pine forest that reaches all the way down to the sea. Ideal both for lovers of peace and quiet and for windsurfers, access is by boat or via a hard-to-find track from the dirt road to Megalo Mourtia beach.
Kokkinokastro: One of the island’s most impressive beaches, at the foot of a steep red cliff and surrounded by large imposing rocks in similar colours. The wild beauty of the landscape is complemented by dense green pine trees, pink-tinged sand and colourful stones, while the deep turquoise waters are great for snorkelling. The beach is ideal for lovers of quiet and seclusion, as it has umbrellas and sun beds but no beach bar or canteen. Access is via steps.
