Located 3 kilometres from Patitiri, the capital of Alonissos, Marpounta is a beautiful beach and one of the most popular tourist resorts on the island. It consists of two nice organized beaches with clear waters and a rocky seafront. Some taverns are found at the back overlooking the crystal sea and the lush surrounding. A dirt path links Megalos Mourtias to Old Alonissos. The walk is lovely and takes about 20 minutes.
