Agios Dimitrios. Agios Dimitrios on the east coast of the greek island of Alonissos, is located fourteen kilometres north of Patiri. It is accessible by car in half an hour. The road from Patitiri to Agios Dimitrios is paved and runs through the beautiful nature of Alonissos.
Agios Dimitrios is a hamlet with a beautiful white pebble beach, with umbrellas and sunbeds for rent. On the beach are various water sports available including canoes. Here is also a restaurant. Agios Dimitrios is situated opposite the island of Peristera on a sort of headland. Therefore, the water gets deep very quickly.
The village owes its name to the eponymous convent which was destroyed by pirates. In Agios Dimitrios there are small swamps which in heavy rainfall rise especially in the winter. In summer, the water evaporates and then shows little of the swamp. Many birds visit these small wetlands of Agios Dimitrios from the autumn.
