The Greek island of Alonissos, an Aegean isle north of Evia, has been named one of the Top Destinations for Ecotourism.

ABTA Magazine, the publication representing the UK’s largest Travel Association, released its top destinations for ecotourism; in second place, is the Greek island of Alonissos. As ecotourism – or green tourism – has become increasingly important to travelers, especially since COVID-19, ABTA and the tourism industry as a whole, have begun to focus on the resulting trends.

The popular hotel booking platform, Booking.com, reported that 81% of travelers say they want to stay in a sustainable accommodation in the upcoming year – which is a notable increase from 62% in 2016, when Booking.com first conducted its sustainable travel research and up 7% from 74% in 2020, just prior to the pandemic.
