Sporades Islands Charter Itineraries

Names of islands: Partially exposed to the Meltemi summer wind but much calmer than in the Cyclades, the Sporades offer relaxed sailing, ideal for families and nature lovers. Sporades island’s charter itineraries generally explore the three principal islands – Skiathos, Alonissos, and Skopelos. Here, fragrant pinewoods rim rocky shores, bathed in crystal clear turquoise waters.

Nearest to the mainland, Skiathos centers on a cosmopolitan harbor town packed with cocktail bars and seafood restaurants. Behind the town, a network of well-marked hiking paths leads to dozens of fine beaches. Skiathos’ best-known beach is Koukounaries, a swathe of golden sand in a wide curving bay, where you might spend a night at anchor.

Nearby, the largest of the Sporades, Skopelos, was the film set for Mamma Mia (2008), starring Meryl Streep. You can visit locations such as Agios Giannis beach with its tiny chapel perched high upon a rock, where the film’s wedding scene took place. Also, explore centuries-old monasteries and feast on local lobster pasta, slow-cooked lamb, and traditional cheese pies in Skopelos Town.

For many yachters, the highlight of the Sporades is Alonissos, home to Alonissos Marine Park, the habitat of protected Mediterranean monk seals, dolphins, falcons, eagles, and cormorants. Moor up in Patitiri port and hike up to hilltop Alonissos Town for supper, then spend several days discovering Alonissos’ indented coast, with lovely unspoiled coves and nearby uninhabited islets.

Your itinerary might also include the Gulf of Volos. The vibrant port city of Volos and Mount Pelion has lush forests and orchards. Also, its natural springs and streams, and old-fashioned villages of traditional stone mansions, on the Greek mainland.
