Sporades Yacht Charter

The Sporades in Greece is a favorite yachting destination for seasoned yacht charterers and superyacht owners alike - spending their Greece yacht holidays on board luxury yachts cruising these beautiful waterways. The Sporades lie on the northwestern section of the Aegean Sea. Known for the exciting and charming experience that it provides, the Sporades is one yacht charter destination in Greece and the Mediterranean like no other. Northern Sporades is the official attribution to this island destination, and refers to several fertile and remote islands of varying sizes and shapes in the northwestern section of the Aegean Sea.

These islands are covered by thick vegetation within a topography that is generally mountainous. Most of the beaches of these islands of Sporades can only be reached by sailboat, and their isolated anchorages and teeming wildlife are what turns these island destinations into perfect holiday paradise for Greece yacht charter sailors and holidaymakers.

Sporades Yacht Charter Experience

The prevailing climate you are likely to encounter on a Sporades yacht charter is what you would expect in any typical Eastern Mediterranean resort destination – moderate winter months with occasional rainfall ant hot summer months. Main temperature range in this region is from 16 to 28 degrees Celsius, which occur during the months from April to October. 

The sailing route to and within Sporades offer a diverse yacht charter vacation possibilities, and it is ideal for those yacht charter enthusiasts with midrange sailing skills. Majority of sailors and tourist that flock to this popular Greek destination proceed to any of the 4 major ports of Sporades – Alonissos, Skiathos, Skyros and Skopelos. There are other ideal entry points to the region, and these include popular places along the northern side of the Evian Coast, within the Gulf of Pagassitikos and along the Eastern section of the Thessaly Coast.

Sporades – Greek Yacht Holiday Experience Like No Other
 
A Sporades yacht charter is considered as an off-the-popular-sea-route destination by yachting enthusiasts. Thus, this is not the typical busy and crowded yacht charter holiday destination in Greece. It is for this reason why several islands of Sporades have become long-time sanctuaries and popular habitation of diverse animal and plant species.

Sailing to this Greek destination on board your superyacht will always bring pleasant surprises and enough doses of excitement and adventure. Because of several anchor points within the region, the thrill and excitement will always be a part of your Greek sailing experience.

While the islands in Sporades cannot boast of abundant marinas like the other destinations in Greece, this “limitation” is compensated by diverse yacht charter possibilities. There are a lot of sailing possibilities within Sporades even for beginners, and the most popular sailing destinations are within the south end portions of Sporades.

The islands of Sporades are definitely the ideal choice for those who want to discover and savor the natural splendors of Greece. It is definitely the favorite place for nature lovers, and while the islands cannot really rival the range of important landmarks and architectural masterpieces with historical significance in other parts of the Aegean region, the island still has a decent collection of artifacts and remnants of ancient civilizations, and there are enough museums within the region as well.

Indeed, Sporades will always come to mind if you are looking for some action and challenge in your crewed luxury yacht charter holiday in Greece.
