The seawaters of the Northern Sporades are amongst the clearest waters in the world, which makes virtually all of Alonissos a safe and satisfying island for swimming.
In addition to Patitiri, other beaches are Roussoum, Votsi, Milia, Chrissi Milia, Kokkinokastro, Tzortzi-Gialos, Lefto-Gialos, Agios Dimitrios, Marpounta, Vithisma, Megalos Mourtias, and Mikros Mourtias.
Besides these, on the northwest part of the island are the beaches of Vrisitsa, Gialia, Tskalia, Tourkoneri and Megali Ammos. It takes from 10 to 45 minutes to reach these beaches by rented car or boat.
Excursion boats will take you to the deserted islands of Peristera, Kyra-Panagia, Gioura, Psathoura, Skantzoura, to visit these beautiful beaches.
It is a small beach with sand and pebbles south west of the island. You can get there leaving from the cemetery to the old village (this part of the road is not very good) or by boat. It was used until the middle '70s as a small port of the old village for the boat making daily trips to Skopelos. As there is no tavern there, it is recommended to take water or supplies with you. It is a very silent and peaceful place so don't be surprised if you meet some nude swimmers there.
A very nice pebble beach, with clear blue-green water, on the south west of the island, next to Vithisma. You can go by car or bike, leaving from the old village. There are three taverns, where you can enjoy lunch or drinks. It is a very populated beach because of its beauty, calm, clear sea and because it is near old Alonissos and Patitiri.
It is a very nice sandy beach between Marpounta and Megalos Mourtias. The easiest way to get there is by boat and it is always quiet and peaceful. Don't forget to take some water and snacks with you, because there is no tavern or snack bar.

MEGALI AMMOS (BIG SAND)
It is for most people the most isolated, interesting place on the north side of the island. However, it is neither big nor sandy. It is just the name of a region with wild natural beauty where you will find a few beautiful unspoiled beaches. For some lovers of exploring virgin nature we recommend visiting this place. You can go there by jeep or motorbike because the road is rough, 5 km from Patitiri.
