Patitiri (Alonnisos Island)

Patitiri is the harbor and the largest town in Alonnisos. The harbor affords good shelter from the meltemi. You can anchor moor stern-to at the quay to the north of the ferry dock, though space here is limited, or anchor moor on the south side of the ferry quay itself. The quay is liable to be crowded during the summer months, while the SW of the harbor is more exposed to westerlies and is crowded with permanent moorings. The bottom is mostly sand and provides good holding.

The town is attractive and has good shopping . To get to  old town, one can get the bus or a taxi from Patitiri or follow the old stone-paved footpath. The stone-paved narrow streets call you to walk them and see the traditional houses full of flowers from close up, sit at the taverns and let your gaze wander the endless blue, dreaming over the sunset westwards towards Skopelos.
On moonlit nights, the village takes on an even more mystical character, and one experiences unique emotions watching the moonlight and the games it plays with shadows in the gardens of the beautiful houses and the other architectural elements of the picturesque village with the enchanting landscapes.
