Sporades

Sporades is a complex of islands situated in the north Aegean Sea, close to mainland Greece. It is comprised mainly of three islands, Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonissos and many other isles and rocks, with common characteristics the crystal, deep blue waters and the rich flora; the pine trees reach down to the sea level, giving a turquoise color to the sea. The shape of the islands (and small scattered isles around them) creates a big number of small gulfs, where the yacht anchors and guests can relax and enjoy swimming. Alonissos with its unique flora and fauna comprises the first Greek National Marine Park, also the biggest one in Europe. Sporades islands are gifted with a soft wind, as they are protected from northern wind (meltemi) that overwhelms the Aegean Sea during summer months. Thus, Sporades offer a relaxed sailing trip, suitable for families and groups that want to enjoy relaxed holidays on a sailing yacht.
