The island of Alonissos in the Sporades group is highlighted as a must-visit destination for families in the online edition of British travel magazine “Family Traveller”.
The feature is part of a promotional campaign launched by the Municipality of Alonissos and the Greek National Tourism Organization’s (GNTO) office in the UK, with the aim to promote the island’s thematic tourism products.
“Family Traveller” describes Alonissos as the “least touristy [of the Sporades islands]… and most appreciated by active families, young nature lovers, mini-marine biologists and wannabe archaeologists.”
Alonissos is set in the largest marine park in Greece. “The waters are utterly pristine – great for snorkelling and spotting everything from seals to dolphins,” the article said.
“Islet-hopping is another local speciality and if kids like boats it’s paradise for day-cruising.”
Meanwhile, the GNTO presented Alonissos’ thematic forms of tourism to British travel professionals during an event which was recently held in London.
“Alonissos has entered a new era… as its diving tourism product is promoted to key markets including the UK,” the island’s Mayor Petros Vafinis said.
