The Sporades are an archipelago along the east coast of Greece, northeast of the island of Euboea, in the Aegean Sea. It consists of 24 islands, four of which are permanently inhabited: Alonissos, Skiathos, Skopelos and Skyros

Alonissos has the wildest natural environment of the group. It is where a rare species of monk leaves and, for that reason, the island and its surrounding waters have been proclaimed a natural and protected environment. The beaches in Alonissos are astonishing, with pure sand or colourful pebbles and emerald-green crystalline waters, and Alonissos is home to the first National Marine Park in Greece

Skopelos is the largest of the Sporades Greece islands and is covered with a verdant and thick pine forest. The capital of the island, Skopelos Town is a pure marvel full of beautiful two-storey Venetian houses with tiled roofs; narrow stone paved streets and whitewashed churches. Apart from its superb town, its lovely mountainous villages and its fine sandy beaches and coves, Skopelos also offers nice bars and taverns.

Skiathos is the most cosmopolitan island in the Sporades group. It is covered with a dense pine forest proclaimed a natural environment that has to be protected and is blessed with some of the most beautiful beaches in the world including Koukounaries, which is considered to be one of the top 3 beaches in the world.   Skiathos offers many restaurants, taverns, bars and night-clubs staying open until dawn.
