Amazing beaches, unique natural beauty
In the heart of Greece, Thessaly, with the exciting nature, and the Sporades, the beautiful lush green islands of Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonnisos, are going to seduce you. Majestic mountains (Kissavos), geological marvels (Meteora), famous rivers (the Pineios), gorges, valleys, lakes and a multitude of beaches. Discover the singular and exciting beauty of this part of Greece: Meteora, Pelion, Lake Plastira, Volos, Larissa, Tempi, Elati – Pertouli, the exotic islands of Sporades and many more destinations welcome you to the place where the greatness of beauty takes center stage.
The Sporades: Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonissos. Three lush green enchanting islands with stunning beaches. Among them, the famous sea park of the Northern Sporades. Discover Skiathos, the birthplace of Alexandros Papadiamantis, and enjoy a relaxing swim in Koukounaries, one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece. In Skopelos, where “Mamma Mia” was filmed, you will admire the unique architecture of its capital town (“Hora”). In Alonissos’ hiking trails, you will explore the beauty of unspoiled nature.
From its deep green trees to its rockin’ bars and restaurants, Skiathos invites you to take part in its distinctive and spirited vibe. Perfect for those who demand high standards, it has long been a premier destination for cosmopolitan, international travelers, particularly those on yachts and sailboats cruising the Mediterranean. At its lively marina, boats of all kinds – many available for private charter – are docked side by side. Holidays on this idyllic Greek island are unforgettable.
The beach service is flawless. Nights in Hora are lively and fun and the spectacular beaches Lalaria and Koukounaria are among the best in Greece. The 14th century castle, the habitat of Strofilias, the caves… The beauty of Skiathos is everywhere. Young and thriving, but most importantly caring, the island and its locals make sure visitors will have an unforgettable time.
If your holiday priorities are tranquility, relaxation and natural beauty, then make your way to Skopelos in the Sporades. The green upon green is stunning: a pine-tree-studded coastline and hidden coves with their fishing boats, winding paths through dense virgin forests. Spend timeless afternoons wandering around the picturesque main town, a cluster of cobblestone streets, tiny chapels and neoclassical buildings. Art comes to life everywhere here in Skopelos: in the hand-crafted vases and hand-painted plates, in the embroidery and miniature model boats. The star of the hit musical Mamma Mia, which gave the island its recent fame, will also be the star of your holiday.
On the western side of the Aegean, on the edge of the Sporades, you’ll find one of the less developed islands, Alonissos. It will lure you in with its unpretentious magic. Charming and pure, its lush, green landscape and pristine beaches with crystal-clear water make it the perfect destination for a relaxing holiday in Greece, filled with beautiful imagery. If you’re looking for a quiet vacation, ensconced in nature, you need to look no further. Unspoiled and authentic, it discreetly lets the wind share its secrets.
