Boasting 11 rugged islands just off the east coast of mainland Greece, the Sporades are hugged by some of Europe’s most crystalline waters. Abound with mountainous terrain and lush vegetation the Sporades waters are delightful for cruising and rich in marine life with opportunities for watching whales, dolphins, seals and turtles.

Only four of the Sporades are inhabited, and exploring the waters and individual characters of Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonissos and Skyros by yacht presents countless opportunities to drop anchor at delightfully secluded bays.

Skiathos
Radiating with atmosphere and entertainment, Skiathos is home to over 60 stunning beaches many of which are only accessible by boat. The lovely cruising grounds and captivating ruins of Kastro make this charter destination an unmissable stop for anyone visiting the Sporades. With seafood restaurants and bars lining the seaside town, there are many opportunities to dine and relax ashore.

Skopelos
A short cruise to the east sees the island of Skopelos. This eclectic blend of tumbling hills and dense forestation makes for a compelling scenic shoreline. Meander around plum trees and explore this stunning island on foot with many walks and charming streets to be admired. This island exudes romance with copious chapels laced along the island making for a picture perfect escape.

Skyros
Steeped in Grecian authenticity and traditional, exquisite cuisine, visit Skyros for a true taste of Greece. With gourmet dishes served in convivial tavernas and many local craft shops, Skyros has many opportunities for souvenir shopping. Skyros Town is brimmed with whitewashed buildings and labyrinthine alleyways and encompassed by beautiful beaches and a captivating Venetian fortress.

Alonissos
Alonissos is the least populated of the Sporades Islands and is the most distant.  Brimmed with marine life and secluded bays the wonderful coastline of Alonissos is ripe for exploration. With walking trails and many coves to explore this lovely green island boasts forests, orchards and meadows which are steeped in natural beauty.
