The Sporades archipelago is composed of eleven major islands, of which only four are inhabited: Alonnisos, Skopelos, Skiathos and Skyros.
Alonnisos, with beautiful beaches, unique natural landscapes of pine groves, olive groves and orchards, surrounded by small scattered islands, is the ideal island for those who want to relax and enjoy the sea and walks in nature.
Skopelos is the greenest island in Greece. Half of its territory is covered with virgin pine forests. Its blue waters, golden coasts and its villages of traditional Pelion architecture create an impressive natural image.
Skiathos, the most cosmopolitan island of the Sporades, is a true paradise on earth, with lush pine forests and crystalline blue waters. Despite the rapid growth of tourism in recent decades, the island remains picturesque and unspoilt.
Skyros, keeps other treasures such as the know-how of his master craftsmen who work in carved furniture, embroidery, ceramics or basketry. Also of interest are the ponies of Skyros, a unique breed.
These islands offer a harmonious contrast between the characteristic green of its Mediterranean vegetation, with large forests of eucalyptus and large pine forests, and the stunning beaches of white sand and crystalline waters in which you will want to submerge.
One of the peculiarities and attractions of the Sporades is the Marine Park, a national reserve for the protection of endangered species such as the Caretta turtle, the Eleonor hawk and the Audouin gull. Also particular is the recovery of the colonies of monk seals that here find a refuge where they breathe from the exploitation of the Mediterranean seas.
On the magical island of Alonnisos you will find beautiful beaches, unique landscapes, and the Marine National Park, the largest marine protected area in Europe with peculiar birds and the Mediterranean monk seal, Monachus Monachus.More information
