Sporades Islands Sailing
The unbeatable combination of gin clear water, great wind and beautiful beaches is proving timeless! With the meltemi blowing heavily during the summer season this is an exciting sailing ground for an experienced crew.
The Sporades Islands lie to the North of Athens, in the Aegean Sea. Amongst other things, they are famous for the regular summer meltemi winds and as the setting for the 2008 ‘Mamma Mia’ movie. The area is also home to the National Marine Park of Alonissos and the endangered Mediterranean Monk Seal.
There is just the one base to sail from in the Sporades Islands, the beautiful, central base of Skiathos Island. Skiathos Harbour is just five minutes from Skiathos Airport where taxis are always ready and waiting. The harbour is located adjacent to the town with it’s many restaurants, bars and buzzing promenade. If you are looking for a treat first meal we recommend the Windmill Restaurant, up on the hill with views out over the bay and surrounding islands, just a five minute walk from the main quay.
