More about the Sporades
These amazing islands are virtually untouched by mass tourism until lately and hence you can enjoy some of the pristine white sandy beaches, clean blue seas and the surrounding hills and lush green valleys.
Every one of these islands has its own beauty and is characterised by a unique charm. All of the Sporades Islands are spectacularly beautiful and scores of undiscovered beaches and bays, just waiting to be explored.
Sporades Islands Travel Guide
Of the 24 beautiful islands that make up the Sporades off the east coast of Greece, only 4 are fully inhabited; Alonnisos, Skiathos, Skopelos and Skyros, each with their own unique feel and culture.
Sunbathing and swimming are the main things to do on the islands because of their gorgeous beaches and year-round Mediterranean sun. From the fruit trees and olive groves of Skopelos to the beautiful little villages of Alonnisos, the Sporades Islands are some of the most intriguing European islands to discover.
Travel to the Sporades Islands
From the Greece, the Sporades take almost no time at all to get to from the ports in Agios Konstantinos, Volos and Thessaloniki.
Things to See
Kastro, the stunning site of the medieval centre of the island that was abandoned in the 19th century, is probably on the top of most visitors' lists when they come to the Sporades. Another site of historic value is the house of the famous Greek novelist Alexandros Papadiamantis in Skiathos where you can learn about Papadiamantis and his novels, written mainly about life on the Sporades.
Like most Greek islands, some companies in the Sporades charter yachts that travel around the turquoise Mediterranean Sea for a real view of the islands' beautiful and unique coastline. In Skopelos, the largest of the four inhabited islands, the architecture is noted as some of the most original and beautiful in the world and is a must see in Skopelos Town.
All the islands have fantastic beaches that are well worth a visit but perhaps the island with the most variety is Skopelos which you choose from great pebbly beaches to golden, sandy beaches all with traditional tavernas selling extraordinary Greek food and drink.
Another site of historic value is the house of the famous Greek novelist Alexandros Papadiamantis in Skiathos where you can learn about Papadiamantis and his novels, written mainly about life on the Sporades.
