Sporades Islands Yacht Charters
The Sporades Islands are known for some of the bluest and cleanest seas one will ever come across
The Sporades Islands of Greece seem to have been made specifically for yacht charters. Located off the eastern shore of the mainland, this island chain is characterized by dense vegetation and mountainous terrain and are world known as some of the bluest and cleanest seas one will ever come across.
Located north of Evvoia, these Greek islands consist of 24 islands of which only 4 are inhabited: Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonnisos and Skyros. Walking routes throughout Skiathos allow guests to explore the island’s beauty among the thick forests and olive groves. Skiathos is also home to historic churches such as the Evagelistrias Monastery, the Churches of St. Harálambos, St. Apóstolos, and St. Dimitrios
On the island of Alonissos, guests can get an up-close look at newborn Mediterranean Monk Seals, one of the largest species of seals, at the National Marine Park. For peace and quiet, head to Skopelos, where the deep green of the pine forests blends into the crystal blue seas. Walk along the sandy beaches and be sure to take a shot of oúzo in one of the tavérnas that border the sea shore. Skyros is home to famous carnival celebrations and guests enjoy riding ponies through the dense forests to explore the natural surroundings.
The cosmopolitan island of Skiathos is the busiest of the Sporades group. The landscape offers breathtaking views of lush pine forests and sparkling blue waters. Guests can enjoy over sixty pristine beaches, particularly Koukounaries Beach, which is known as the third most beautiful beach in the Mediterranean.
Alonissos features a rugged appeal for those who enjoy a natural escape. Rich pine forests, olive groves, and orchards mark the trails into the interior, and small islands are scattered in the azure waters which surround Alonissos. Here you can see the Mediterranean monk seal, dolphins, and rare seabirds.
The landscape of Skopelos consists of rocky natural monuments, golden beaches, and untouched pine forests. Skopelos gained fame after the movie Mamma Mia was filmed here. The quaint villages and the romantic-looking chapel from the wedding scene of the movie draw charter guests.
Skyros is the largest of the the Sporades and is situated only three and half hours from Athens. The island is connected to ancient Greek Mythology heroes such as Lykomedes, Theseus, Achilles, and Neoptolemus. Here you can get a deep understanding of the history, traditions, heritage, and architecture.
