"Sporades" means "those scattered" (compare with "sporadic"), and was used from Classical Antiquity to refer to the Aegean island groups outside the central archipelago of the Cyclades. The North Sporades islands lie near the East coast of Central Greece and consist of 4 inhabited islands (Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonissos and Skyros) and several uninhabited ones (Peristera, Kyra Panagia, Yioura, Psathoura). The Sporades is known as the emerald of the Aegean, because of their rich vegetation, and green blue waters that are considered to be the cleanest in all of the Aegean. This chain of islands are also the home of some of the most beautiful beaches in the entire world. Unspoiled and authentic, travelers who look for seclusion, nature, and culture can find it in the Sporades. Furthermore, the marine area is a natural park and home of the biggest colony of Monk seals in the Mediterranean Sea.

Our catamaran base is the Port of Skiathos. You can reach it either by air (domestic and international flights) or by ferry from Ag. Konstantinos.

Sailing conditions: Between May and September, the dominant winds in the North Aegean blow from the north at force 2-5. The strength of the meltemi is much less than in the central Aegean and although you will find many chances to sail fast it is not as challenging. The distance between the islands is short and unless you decide to sail to the North and Halkidiki Peninsula you will not face open water sailing conditions. In the lee of the islands and the Gulf of Orei you are protected from the swells.
