Alonissos, Greece

Alonissos, in the northern Sporades islands of Greece is likely not a Greek holiday destination that youโ€™ve heard of. Mykonos and Santorini, sure, but Alonissos should be on your radar if youโ€™re planning on doing some island hopping this summer.

It has been nominated again and listed among the worldโ€™s top 100 leading sustainable destinations, which is a distinction awarding efforts of international tourism locations for responsible and sustainable projects.

Why we love it: The island focuses its efforts to stay low impact on energy conservation. The island is small enough to cycle around, so thereโ€™s no need for a car.

Where to stay? The IKON ECO hotel, part of the Green Hotels network.
