"Beach: Roussoum Yialos" Alonnisos Island Things to Do Tip by dimilag

Alonnisos Island Things to Do: 37 reviews and 36 photos

Roussoum Yialos is the most popular beach for swimming in the area; 7 minutes walk from Votsi and only 5 minutes from Patitri. You can enjoy delicious local dishes in the tavernas along the beach after swimming.

Rsum in Turkish means tax. The explanation about the name Roussoum is because the products of the island, especially the wine, were shipped from this place and that's why taxes were collected there.
