Skiathos: best for partying

Skiathos is considered to be the Mykonos of northern Greece thanks to its astonishing beaches but mainly to the party atmosphere, which is everywhere on the island. The capital is built amphitheatrically around a calm bay, and it is distinguished by its traditional architecture and its cosmopolitan character, which has as a result a lot of restaurants, shops, cafés and clubs with all kinds of music for everyone. Much of the entertainment is gathered at the seafront and the main Papadiamanti Street, but there are also numerous famous beach-bars at the beaches of Skiathos, where fun lasts until late at night with hundreds of young people dancing by the sea.


Skopelos: best for couples

The pictures of Skopelos in the famous film Mamma Mia have created legions of fans, who visit this destination often and admire the astonishing scenery, which gave the movie the aura of the summer. However, Skopelos impresses its visitors not only with its secluded -surrounded by pine trees- caves, but also with its Chora. Built amphitheatrically, it has paved streets, traditional taverns by the sea and the feeling of a calm Greek island to relax and enjoy the delicious cuisine. There is no better scenery to spend with your other half than wandering around the town of Skopelos, eating tasteful dishes and enjoying the nostalgic atmosphere in a promenade by the sea.


Alonissos: best for wildlife

One of the greatest assets of Alonissos - in addition to the imposing beaches with the crystal sea waters and the beautiful main village- is the day trip by boat in order to see monachus monachus, the protected species of seal, which lives in the sea and the tiny islands around Alonissos. The Marine Park of Alonissos is also a must-see for those, who are passionate about dolphins and generally marine life.


Skyros: best for relaxing

Skyros is the remotest island of Sporades in the middle of the Aegean Sea. It has a totally different character than the other islands with a unique wild landscape and a Chora that reminds of Cyclades. Romantic Greek guesthouses, traditional taverns with fresh fish, the hospitable locals and generally the feeling of medowness on this island make it the ideal destination to chill out, find the inner peace and calmness you want as well as discover the imposing hiking paths, which offer you the opportunity to be in contact with nature.
