With only 1000 meters long and its unique dive sites, Alona Beach is well known from divers and tourists who want to avoid the mass tourism. There is no traffic on the beach and you’ll be amazed by the warm and genuine welcome of their inhabitants.
Important information for people using wheelchairs !
The practical side Alona Beach is a beautiful, calm and wonderful beach, diving is awesome, people are friendly, polite and always ready to help but, as said, it is a beach and you'll find there sand, salt, wind and water...
There is no concrete road for you to go from one place to another but only hard sand on the ground, which is a bit uneven in some places. This can give you a really hard time if you are weak and want to go only by yourself (tetraplegics for instance), especially when it's rainy.
If you are using an electric wheelchair, beware of the sand and the salt! Frequent cleaning and services are customary, don't forget to bring spare parts with you !
Everything you need is on the spot ...
