SPORADES ISLANDS

ALONNISOS

Alonnisis is best known for its beautiful beaches, lush greenery and stunning natural landscapes. From the pine forests to the olive groves, the marine park to the farmland, the island has much to offer. The village of Chora provides breathtaking views across the Aegean Sea, while families are drawn to the port of Alonissos Greece, Patitiri, and other popular spots including Patitiri, Votsi, Roussoum Gialos and Steni Vala. See the Neolithic settlement remnants at the Cape of Kokkinókastro and take time to visit the Old Village, Hora, the former capital of the island.

SKIATHOS

Skiathos is one of the most popular in Greece, with an amazing atmosphere for people of all ages, natural beauty and more than 60 spectacular beaches. The bay of Koukounaries is one of the island’s best features - named the third most beautiful beach in the Mediterranean, along with the beach of Lalaria which is only accessible by boat. The town itself has a fantastic nightlife, and you can take time out to visit the Old Harbour or enjoy a walk through the paved streets to explore the vibrant houses which are traditionally white with red roofs.

SKOPELOS

Skopelos is a popular travel destination for couples seeking a romantic getaway, or families looking for some time out to enjoy the sunshine. The beaches are lit up with crystal waters and clean sands, while the towns offer a variety of entertainment and views. The two main villages on the island are Town and Glossa and offer views of the Aegean Sea from high atop the hillside. Skopelos is known to be the greenest island in Greece, with over half of the island coated in a beautiful virgin pine forest. This is an experience you will not want to miss.

SKYROS

Skyros is the most southern island in the Sporades and is best known for its sea caves, jagged coastline, pristine beaches and charming villages by the water. With a population of around 3,000, the island has a long history which dates back as far as 2800BC, with artefacts from that era housed in the local museum. Achilles spent his early days on this island and one of the most popular destinations for travellers is the Byzantine monastery of Saint George. The island’s “goat festival” is an old tradition which draws visitors from across the world. Visit Chora and explore the local, narrow streets and medieval castle; or relax on the island’s most popular beach at Molos.
