Halki), the islets of Lipsi, Agathonisi, Pserimos , Kastellorizo , Levitha , Giali , Kinaros, amongst other islets, barren islets and rock peaks, all constitute the group of islands known as the Dodecanese.

The charter base that “serves” the Sporades is in the marina of Skiathos island. The island of Alonissos offers moments of peace and tranquility. It is also a refuge of the protected Mediterranean Seal "Monahous - Monahous".
