The island of Alonissos, in Sporades, was included in the top 10 less known islands of Europe, according to the Australian travel website traveller.com.au.
The island Mljet, in Croatia, near the Dalmatian coast, ranks first followed by Alonissos and Andros. Other Mediterrannean and Northern European islands are included in the list.
According to the website, Alonissos is “the dream of every nature lover” as it hosts the national marine park and is the shelter for the Mediterranean seal monachus-monachus, dolphins and rare birds.
The Greek island is also a favourite place for sailors seeking tranquility and good food, and especially the bay of Steni Vala.
