8 - 15 July : SKIATHOS, SPORADES ISLANDS (F)

SKIATHOS – SPORADES ISLANDS

Sunday 8th – Sunday 15th July 2018

Situated about 120km due north of Athens, just off Greece's east coast, the Sporades archipelago is one of the Mediterranean's lesser known and least visited island groups.

Only four of the 24 islands – Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonissos and Skyros - are inhabited, and the further one travels from the mainland, the more one strays off the beaten path.

with an array of delightful beaches, and lapped by blue waters, the Sporades are a superb destination for sailors.

We start at Skiathos harbour, < 2 miles from the airport

and will visit Koukounaries on the south west coast. It's been called the best beach in Greece. It's a particularly eye-catching crescent-shaped sweep of soft, golden sand, fringed with palm trees. We may also visit "Goose Bay"!

Skopolos is the 2nd main Island including Nasini beach, a very good lunch stop as well as another Mamma Mia scene and The Mamma Mia church. actually named 'Agios Ioannis chapel' and is on the north east of the island of Skopelos. The coastline around the church is dramatic, and offers many good anchorages just to the north of the chapel. It also has excellent snorkelling,

Will visit the church bay, winds permitting and the capital Skopolos Town

Alonissos to the east will see visits to Patitiri,which has a lovely harbour. and

Steni valla a smaller village with several tavernas.

North east of steni Valla is The Alonnisos marine park , a protected habitat for the Monk Seal, one of the largest seals in the world but now numbering only 600 worldwide.

The marine park extends NE of Alonnisos and Peristera offering excellent anchorages/lunch stops as do all the Islands. Several other options to visit other harbours and also the mainland just to the west of Skiathos.
