The Sporades, meaning ‘those scattered’, are a group of islands along the east coast of Greece in the Aegean Sea.
Of the 24 islands, only 4 are inhabited: Alonnisos, Skiathos, Skopelos and Skyros, which are characterised by fertile plains, dense pine forest and beautiful beaches. They offer a slightly different Greek island experience than most, with their traditional architecture, relaxing atmosphere and secluded coves.
The Sporades have something for everyone; Skopelos and Alonissos are best suited to families, whilst Skiathos has lively bars and more in the way of an exciting nightlife. Finally, the least travelled island, Skyros boasts an attractive capital town and quiet beaches.
Given their proximity to the mainland, there is a wide choice of high-speed sailings to a few locations on the eastern coast of Greece. You can also choose from equally frequent routes within the Sporades, which are all operated by one of the country’s most popular ferry companies.
Skopelos is a Greek island in the western Aegean Sea, in the Northern Sporades archipelago within the Thessaly region.
Shaped like a saxophone, Skopelos is one of the most charismatic islands in Greece, mostly known for setting the scenes of the Hollywood film, ‘Mamma Mia’ in 2008. Two of the standout settlements, Skopelos Town and Glossa, offer terracotta-topped, white-washed houses amongst steep, beautiful slopes, affording wonderful panoramic views of the Aegean. The nation’s hub for wine production in Ancient times, Skopelos is, today, one of the country’s greenest spaces, with pine-clad hills, countless olive groves and bursts of colour from flowers lining the narrow, cobbled streets.
Like most Greek islands, it’s easy reach to Skopelos by ferry, with plentiful domestic crossings on offer from the surrounding islands and mainland cities. The routes are operated by leading Greek operators, with some journeys last just ten minutes.
