The beach of Megalos Mourtias is very popular in Alonissos, and is a favourite among the inhabitants of the Old Village, since they can walk down to it using a signed footpath. It is also highly accessible by car and/or motorbike.
Once again, on the exterior smooth white pebbles dominate the scenery. Seawards, you will find silky smooth sand. There is a gentle slope, the water gradually getting deeper. You can find shade under the beach umbrellas or under the olive trees that grow a few metres away from the sea…
The water is crystal clear with a beautiful silky blue colour. In order to get the most out of your visit in any of the beaches in Alonissos, it is a good idea to bring a mask and a snorkel, so that you can enjoy the underwater beauty and colour display. Even those that are not snorkel enthusiasts should be prepared to be dazzled by the beauty of the underwater scenery of Alonissos.
In the area operate three tavernas where you will be able to enjoy fresh fish and traditionally Greek food.
