ACTIVITIES

Peristera Shipwreck

The Peristera wreck is the largest ship of its time to have been found and its discovery was of major significance to historians. Dubbed the “Parthenon of Shipwrecks”, the 5th-century shipwreck of Peristera, located off the Northern Sporades island of Alonissos, and is the first ancient shipwreck to be opened to the public in Greece.
The sight it offers is spectacular. Thousands of ancient vases, the vast majority intact, lie in layers. Fish, sponges and other sea creatures have made the amphoras their home, adding color and life to the site. In some places, the cargo towers above divers as they pass along the perimeter of the wreck.

Group Tours with boat to Kyra Panagia

Explore the largest of the isles surrounding Alonissos and delve into the island’s history.

Private Tours to the nearby Isles

Experience the raw beauty of the Marine Park where dolphins, mediterrenean seals and over 300 different fish species find shelter. We organize fascinating private tours to the nearby isles with a speedboat and experienced skippers.

Kyra Panagia

Kyra Panagia is the largest of the isles surrounding Alonissos. Ancient Alonissos was in fact located here. Hence its two harbors, both well sheltered from the weather, the archaeological findings suggest that this has been an island of particular imporance. At Planitis harbor we find remnants of fortifications that show the island had been inhabited since 6000 BC. In a perfectly beautiful Aegean landscape, visitors can see the restored Byzantine monastery (which functioned until 1984)

Peristera

Peristera is a beautiful and friendly little isle with low plant life, ideal for walks. In a great proximity to the isle, the ancient shipwreck that bears it’s name, is considered “the Parthenon of shipwrecks”. Peristera is located just across Steni Vala and here you can combine diving and relaxing on the beautiful beaches.

Giouria

In Giouria islet you’ll find – in addition to the Mediterranean monk seal Monachus monachus- a rare kind of a wild goat which finds shelter here. In Giouria you can visit the cave of the Cyclops with its stalagmites and stalactites.

Psathoura

The volcanic rock of the island Psathoura has a diversity of soils and colors. In Psathoura, it’s worth visiting the Mandraki Beach and the lighthouse built by the French occupiers of the island.

Piperi

Piperi is the key sland of the marine park and here you can see rare species of birds and plants of unique importance for the biodiversity of the park.

Skantzoura

Skantzoura are shaped from a series of low hills with low vegetation. Very close by are the islets of Stroggilo and Polemika.
