Day 1: Skopelos

Skopelos, like nearby Skiathos, has high cliffs on the northwest and sheltered harbors on the southeast. Two settlements, Skopelos Town and Glossa, are worth visiting. Skopelos Town has brilliant white houses highlighted by colorful flower-filled balconies. Stroll the town and have a drink at one of the waterside cafes. There are two small museums as well. Glossa, the other town, has recently become home to the little church, Agios Ioannis Kastri, featured in the film “Mamma Mia.”

Besides sightseeing, you may enjoy kayaking, hiking, or going to the beach.

Day 2: Kyra Panagia

On Karpathos island, Kyra Panagia Beach is a beautiful sandy beach in a small cove right between the mountains. It has a fine mixture of white sand, smooth pebbles, and crystalline water. It is located 14 km north of Pigadia, the capital of Karpathos, and close to Apella beach. In addition to relaxing on the beach, you may take a cooking class, take a walking tour, or taste local wines.

Day 3: Alonnisos

Alonissos is an island of unique natural beauty and is primarily known for its beaches with crystal-clear waters and the Marine Park. Patitiri is the capital and the main port of Alonissos. Moreover, the most significant part of the island’s population is concentrated. The village was built by the inhabitants of Chora, who left their village due to the earthquake of 1965.

Day 4: Skiros

Your next stop is Skiros, the largest of the Sporades islands. After breakfast, go to town and perhaps visit a museum (or two), such as the Manos and Anastasia Faltaits Folk Art Museum or the Archaeological Museum. Walk along cobblestone streets and admire the Skyrian houses’ unique architecture. Enjoy lunch ashore or onboard your yacht. In the afternoon, bask on the beach. The most popular Skyros beaches are Molos and Magazia.

Day 5: Kimi

The seaside resort of Kimi is a lovely small town. Just below the harbor is beautiful Thapsa beach, and this would be a perfect place to bring out the water toys. Later, visit the town and try local Greek cuisine at To Kapitsalio or Anatoli Koutelos.

Day 6: Andros

The stunning island of Andros greets you with lush valleys, mountains, rivers, and ancient settlements. Besides, many activities here include hiking, biking, exploring, dining, and sightseeing. Take a half-day sightseeing tour if you want to see the island or enjoy the beach. Fellos Beach is a sandy beach with lots of shade from pine trees.

Day 7: Kea

Beautiful Kéa greets you with steep mountains, green fields, olive groves, vineyards, valleys, picturesque coves, hiking trails, and beaches. Additionally, enjoy birdwatching, cave exploring, swimming, snorkeling, and diving. Diving enthusiasts will especially like seeing the wreck of the Britannic, the sister ship to the Titanic.
