of the
Aegean Sea

Piece of Thessaly are also the historic islands of the Sporades, Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonnisos, “the floating forests of the Aegean”, with the sapphirine beaches “lost” within the lush vegetation. The North Sporades islands are among the most beautiful sailing destinations in Greece just a few nautical miles from the peninsula of Pelion.

The characteristics of the weather are the mild winds between May to October, the very good weather conditions and the calm waters of the Pagasetic Gulf that offer the opportunity for sailing both to experienced sailors, but also to visitors with no previous experience.

There are many destinations to visit and routes to sail, and the unique pictures you meet, will be the prize for your trip.

While sailing in Sporades islands you will discover the virgin beaches, gulfs and coves with turquoise waters. Not rare dolphins swim beside you.There are plenty of islands to visit apart from the main islands Skopelos, Skiathos, Alonnisos & the smaller islands of Pelagos or Kyra Panagia, and Peristera, Skantzoura, Gioura, Piperi, Psathoura that have no inhabitants. There are plenty of safe and organized ports, isolated but safe little gulfs suitable to stay overnight.

Special note should be made of the National Marine Park of Alonnisos and the Northern Sporades. It covers an area of 2200 square kilometres and was created mainly to protect the Mediterranean seal, as it is where the largest native populations of the species live and reproduce.
