Legend has it that the gods created the Sporades Islands by tossing colored pebbles into the Aegean Sea. The myth is reflected in the name Sporades, which means “the scattered ones,” (sporadic) and in the colors of their verdant green hills, sapphire blue waters and sandy beaches.
11 islands,4 only with habitants, can satisfy the most demanding travelers. From bustling Skiathos with its gorgeous beaches and active nightlife to the picturesque landscapes and quite life of Alonnisos, the Sporades have something special to offer every visitor. Skiathos and Skopelos are the most famous islands of the complex, while Alonissos and Skyros keep a lower profile.
Sailing in the Sporades Islands is an incredible experience thanks to the regular summer “meltemi” wind which is calmer than the Cyclades islands.
