Alonissos might not be the largest or most commercial of all the Greek Islands, however you'll find the island is home to a number of small, picturesque boutiques selling everything from handmade jewellery, ceramics and pottery to wooden toys, books, paintings and antiques.
If your idea of heaven is a sun-drenched Greek taverna, Alonissos won't disappoint. All around this dazzling island, you'll find atmospheric village and beach tavernas serving quintessential Greek recipes, from delicious meze titbits like taramasolata and dolmades - rice-stuffed vine leaves - to delectable fresh fish and classics like moussaka and souvlaki, all perfectly washed down with pine-scented retsina, cold beer or the fruity local Boutari wine. Don't miss everyone's favourites of flaky spinach and cheese pies and sticky-sweet baklava.
One of the best ways to spend Alonissos evenings is lingering over dinner at one of its many tavernas, especially when it's served up with idyllic sea views or a terrific sunset. You'll also be able to take your pick from the myriad of bars and cafés.
