Scattered in the North Aegean Sea, the Sporades islands of Skiathos, Skopelos, Skyros, Alonnisos together with a handful of mostly uninhabited islets, lie within close proximity to Northen Evoia and the Magnisia mainland and create a glorious image of summer bliss.
Cliffs carpeted in lush green are reflected in the crystal-clear waters and inspire a heavenly sense of tranquillity. An ideal destination for nature-lovers, since one of the largest protected sea areas in Europe (covering approximately 2220 km2) is found off Alonissos, providing refuge for a myriad of species, both flora and fauna, on the verge of extinction. The Mediterranean seal (Monachus monachus) constitutes one of the largest species of seal while verifying the biodiversity of Greece. It is in fact the symbol of Alonnisos.
Those who seek the delights of the night-life will not be disappointed with Skiathos. Hailed the "Mykonos of the North" it boasts numerous clubs and beach bars and draws countless celebrities as well as tourists for endless fun until the early hours of the morning.
The greatest benefit of holidaying in the Sporades by sailing boat is that in a week all needs and preferences can be perfectly combined and catered for- idyllic sunsets in Alonnisos, traditional architecture and wonderful food in Skopelos, golden beaches and incredible fun in Skiathos. Certainly worth trying!
