The Sporades Islands Greece yacht charter

If you want to take a sailing holiday in Greece for the first time and you want to visit some of the islands to get an idea without sailing through the length and breadth of the Aegean, we can certainly recommend a vacation to the Northern Sporades.
The Sporades are a group of 16 islands and islets, of which however only Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonissos and Skyros islands are inhabited. They are located opposite the island of Evia and the coasts of Pelion.

Lush vegetation

The Sporades, especially Skiathos and Skopelos, have a different nature compared to the arid Cyclades. The Sporadic vegetation is absolutely wonderful. A holiday on a sailing boat in around the Greek Sporades is a hymn to life and nature.

The long white sandy beaches and small bays, are all surrounded by vast expanses of pine and olive trees, which reflected in the sea, give the water a beautiful shade of green and the air an intoxicating fragrance.

Skiatos island
Skiathos is definitely the most touristy island of the Sporades. Every summer, in fact, thanks to the beautiful beaches with the green of the lush vegetation reflected in the water, the island is full of tourists from all over Europe.

The mystical Skopelos
Equally as green is the mystical Skopelos, full of lush forests, sloping down towards the sea, mountains and hills, monasteries and isolated points and dramatic cliffs that overlook the sea.

The island of Skopelos has places of particular beauty, that are unique and are great places to meditate, but not just that. The island also has beautiful beaches and a thriving nightlife, especially in the capital, one of the most picturesque examples of a harbour city, full of narrow streets, small shops and taverns.

Alonissos and Skyros
Alonissos and Skyros on the other hand are islands that haven’t yet been invaded by tourists. The ideal area for those looking for an authentic and, above all quiet, sailing holiday in Greece.

Alonissos silent and naturalist, with its long miles of virgin and protected coastline where monk seals splash away. Its beaches are not too crowded, and silence and peace can be enjoyed at night. Chora, the island’s capital perched on a mountain overlooking the sea is truly amazing.

Alonissos and the uninhabited surrounding islands are part of the Marine National Park, where there are 80 species of birds, more than 300 different species of fish, dolphins, but more importantly, the largest colony in the world of the Monk Seals (Monachus -Monachus).

Discover the landscape
The Sporades are an ideal destination for a holiday on a sailing boat in Greece, for the beauty of the landscape, the climate and the lush vegetation and the truly magnificent water.

Near the coast of Turkey
Here we are close to the coast of Turkey (the Dodecannese are also called southern Sporades) and here boating holidays or sailing gullet cruises that sail through the Sporades, the Dodecanese and the Turkish coast, are very popular.

In short, the Sporades are an ideal itinerary for sailing holidays in Greece, recommended for those who want to enjoy the luxuriant nature as well as the calm and nightlife that these islands offer.
