The Sporodes is less crowded, more beautiful and better value than other Greek regions. Get a great deal from our partner Stavento Sailing.
Located in the northwest Aegean, the pine-clad Sporades islands resemble a collection of priceless emerald jewels scattered (hence “sporadic”) across serene aquamarine seas. Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonissos and Skyros are the region’s four main islands, while there are around 20 smaller, uninhabited islets and countless placid bays to drop anchor in if you’re approaching the islands by boat. Weather conditions are mostly gentle, making it ideal for those new to sailing in the Med.
Fans of Mamma Mia! will recognise Skopelos’s Kastani beach, featured in the original film. You can even moor and walk up to the church where the wedding took place.
The region provides a number of marine parks which offer dolphins and a local species of seal.
The area is quieter than the Ionian and Saronic regions. Just make sure you go in early June or late September which is not as hot, less crowded and a lower cost, while still being warm. You can fly there from Athens or take a bus and ferry.
In 2025 our annual Mediterranean Trip will be to this region.
