The Sporades, which stretch out into the Aegean off Greece’s eastern coast, consist of 24 islands, but only four of these are permanently inhabited: Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonissos and Skyros. They are equally beautiful. All of them consist of picturesque villages, mountainous terrain, covered with dense vegetation. Unspoiled and authentic, with it’s mixture of bustling waterfront towns, panoramic views of charming little villages and remote anchorages is an area of outstanding natural beauty which will make you love this part of our beautiful country.
Skiathos is a small picturesque island of 50 km2 located in the Aegean Sea, a two hour ferry ride from the Greek mainland. There are over 60 sandy beaches, including the highly acclaimed Koukounaries Beach along the coastline. Inland, pine trees abound with forests located in the southwestern and northern regions. Natural beauty with stunning views of neighbouring islands, secluded beaches even in high season, a cosmopolitan nightlife, and superb Greek and international cuisine.

Evia, the second largest island of Greece and the third in the eastern Mediterranean, is located close to the Prefecture of Attica. However, it has a somewhat mainland character, since two bridges – the modern, suspended one and the older, sliding one – link it to mainland Greece, called “Sterea Ellada”.
The prefecture of Evia (which also includes the island of Skiros), is next to the prefecture of Viotia on the east and on the south touches the Aegean Sea, on the north and northwest to the Pagasitiko and Maliako Gulf, while on the west and southwest with the north and south Evian Gulf.
