The Northern Sporades on the eastern side of Greece are a very popular yacht charter area with some of the prettiest, thickly wooded, islands in the Mediterranean. The Sporades have not managed to escape the hordes quite as well as other charter grounds in Greece. On a bareboat sailboat yacht charter, you’ll still be able to find fantastic anchorages, though they may be slightly busier. Skiathos is tagged the Mykonos of the Sporades, and Skopelos is following hot on its trail. Although crowded, the beaches are fantastic. Alonnisos, having escaped most people’s attention, is an absolute paradise for sailing yacht charters. Alonnisos is serene and green. The water surrounding the island has been declared to be the cleanest in the Aegean and acclaimed as a marine park. This is a fantastic place to stop on your sailing vacation, and enjoy the natural surroundings There is constant human presence in the main islands of Sporades since the Palaeolithic period. According to Greek myths, Skyros was the island where Theseas, the hero of Athens, was assassinated by the king of this island, Lykomides.  According to Homer, the same king had been entrusted by Thetis to hide her son Achilles – disguised as a girl – in order to keep him away from the Trojan War, but Odysseus uncovered their deceit.

A significant point in the islands history was their participation in the Athenian-led alliance of 478 BC. Later they submitted to the Romans followed by the Byzantines. From 1207 Sporades were dominated by the Venetians, who remained there up to the Turkish conquest of 1538. All the islands were liberated in 1830, joining the Greek State.
