Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonisos and Skyros are the main islands that belong to the Sporades group. The most popular one, Skiathos, presents beautiful restaurants by the sea, and amazing large sandy beaches, some of which are not accessed by car so visitors usually rent local small boats to make the island's tour. Not easily accessed as the Ionian or the Cyclades islands are, as most of the Sporades visitors usually have to drive to Agios Konstantinos, and then cruise to the rest of the islands.
The island of Skyros is the ideal destination for relaxation! The main village is Chora. Molos is one of the most popular beaches the island presents. There are some other beautiful beach places such as Atsitsa, Agios Phocas (difficult access if there are winds) and Kalamitsa bay (easier access by yacht). Skyros is also chosen for holidays from couples and families as it's quite unspoiled with picturesque natural views.
Alonisos belongs to the Sporades complex and can be reached by boat from Agios Constantinos port or Volos. The island's town is Patitiri, from where the visitors can rent excursion boats and enjoy a visit to the Blue Cave and the Marine Park! Alonisos has emerald beaches and a breathtaking natural beauty! A beach not to be missed is Chrissi Milia!
Skopelos belongs to the Sporades group and is located between Skiathos and Alonissos. Skopelos island is a great place for families and couples. The island is full of green landscapes and crystal clear beaches. Town and Glossa are the main traditional villages that the island presents. An attraction is the Church of Agios Ioannis, known as the Mamma Mia Church as scenes from this Hollywood movie were filmed there.
