The sporades, are divided into two groups: Northern Sporades, those that we will make and sporadic Orientals located along the coast of Asia minor.
They are mountainous islands dispersed in an extraordinarily clear sea. To reach the Sporades, we will sail north through the channel formed between Euboea Island (to the east) and Continental Greece (to the west).
As a whole, the archipelago describes a sickle-shaped curve from the southern corner of the peninsula of Trikeri to the north to the small semi-submerged rock of Psathoura.
There are four main islands: Skiathos and Skopelos, the most touristic, while Alonnisos and Skiros are the most pristine islands along with numerous smaller uninhabited islands.
Always remaining on the edge of historical events, these islands have few archaeological finds. Recently, traces of Minoan settlements have been brought to light in Stafilos on the island of Skopelos. The islands were allies submissive to Athens and later to Macedonia and Rome. Skiros has always been more important than the other islands, being along the trade routes between Athens and Asia Minor.
The Sporades are very green, the vegetation is their great strength. It seems that the Sporades breathe deeply (and indeed it is) in their pine forests, which at times are interrupted but only when the sea decides.
The beautiful landscapes and the beautiful sandy beaches attract more and more tourists in the most easily accessible islands of the archipelago. Alonnisos and the neighboring islands (Peristeri - Panayia - Skantzoura - etc.) are part of the Northern Sporades marine national park. The park was established in 1992, created in order to safeguard the Mediterranean monk seal, at risk of extinction. The park is home to numerous other rare species of fauna and flora.
Meltemi does not blow in the Northern Sporades as intensely as in the more southern areas. Generally it comes from the north - north east, but the direction is notably altered by the islands and the channels that separate them. The islands block much of the long sea that comes from the north. The combination of meltemi and flat sea along the sheltered coasts of the islands makes sailing very exciting.
