A beautiful pebble beach, equipped with umbrellas and sunbeds at the usual modest Greek prices, has the particularity of having a “different” sea depending on whether you go to the right or left of the tip. Agios Dimitrios’ waters have different shades that start from the light blue up to the intense blue of the sea.

It is one of the three islands of the Sporades. Alonissos Park presents a taste of paradise; superb beaches, diversity of diving fish, rich birdlife, and if you are lucky, monk seals. The day trips organized by Captain Pakis and his superb traditional boat will forever be unforgettable. Take advantage of it but leave no trace behind it. These magical places must be preserved from any pollution that is already appearing.
