Sporades: An alternative destination of unique beauty

Sailing Greek islands: Best yachting holidays

Sporades islands are scattered in northwestern Aegean. This complex of islands includes 24 islands of which four are inhabited. Dense greenery, rocky landscapes and pure waters are the ingredients of this beautiful part of Greece.

Skiathos is the most well known of the four islands. Cosmopolitan and vivid, Skiathos will charm you with its sandy beaches and striking beauty.

Skopelos is the ideal place to be if you are on holidays with your family. Tranquillity and harmony are the island’s unique traits. If some places look familiar, don’t be surprised! The “Mamma mia” movie was filmed here and yes, the chapel on the rock exists!

Alonissos is the most alternative destination with its unspoilt nature, beaches for every taste and long hiking trails that invite you to explore it on foot. The island is home to the Mediterranean Monk Seal (monachus monachus) and a visit to the National Marine Park is definitely worthwhile!

Skyros, the largest of the Sporades, combines lush pine forests with wild rocky landscapes. The Lilliputian ponies – a local breed, the abundance of lobsters, a galore of sea caves and the rich local culture will definitely thrill you.
