The Sporades islands are geographically located between the Greek mainland and the Greek islands of North Eastern Aegean. These four small lush green enchanting islands with stunning beaches have a special character each and an amazing nature. Skiathos is the most well known of the four islands.

Discover Skiathos, the birthplace of Alexandros Papadiamantis, and enjoy a relaxing swim in Koukounaries, one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece. 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! The least known but equally beautiful island of Sporades is 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. Live experiences that will enrich your vacation to a point you would never imagine!
