Greek Island Hopping, Sporades Edition

Greek island hopping is a quintessential experience, and the Sporades islands offer some of the best adventures. The Sporades archipelago, located in the Aegean Sea, includes popular islands like Skiathos, Alonissos, Skopelos, and Skyros.

Start your journey in Skiathos, known for its vibrant nightlife, beautiful beaches, and historic sites. Visit Koukounaries Beach, one of the most famous beaches in Greece, and explore the island’s charming town with its whitewashed houses and lively tavernas.

From Skiathos, take a ferry to Skopelos, the island made famous by the movie “Mamma Mia!”. Skopelos is known for its lush landscapes and numerous monasteries. Don’t miss the chance to visit the Church of Agios Ioannis Kastri, perched on a rock overlooking the sea. Skopelos’ beaches, such as Kastani and Panormos, offer crystal-clear waters and stunning views.

Next, head to Alonissos, a quieter and less touristy island. Alonissos is perfect for nature lovers and those looking to relax. Explore the Alonissos Marine Park, the largest marine protected area in Europe, and take a boat trip to see dolphins and the endangered Mediterranean monk seal. The island’s old town, Chora, is a beautiful place to wander with its narrow streets and traditional architecture.

Continue your island-hopping adventure to Skyros, the southernmost island of the Sporades. Skyros combines beautiful beaches with a rich cultural heritage. Visit the Byzantine Castle and the Archaeological Museum of Skyros to learn about the island’s history. Skyros is also known for its unique local crafts, including wood carving and ceramics.

Throughout your journey, enjoy the delicious local cuisine. Each island has its specialties, from Skopelos cheese pie to Alonissos’ fresh seafood. Make sure to try local wines and spirits, such as ouzo and tsipouro.

Island hopping in the Sporades offers a perfect blend of relaxation, adventure, and cultural exploration. Whether you are lounging on pristine beaches, hiking through lush landscapes, or discovering ancient ruins, the Sporades islands have something for everyone. Plan your Greek island-hopping adventure in the Sporades and create unforgettable memories.
