The sun-blessed Sporades archipelago sits in the Aegean Sea on the east coast of Greece. Only four of its 24 tight-knit islands are permanently inhabited; tranquil Alonnisos and spiritual Skyros, as well as the Mamma Mia! locations of Skiathos and Skopelos.

Experience these ravishing islands from a new perspective reveals its deep knowledge of every beach and cove.

Skiathos’ rugged beauty was given the Hollywood treatment for the filming of Mama Mia! And no wonder – the island has an endless supply of beautiful beaches – so splash about and sunbathe in a peaceful cove or ramp up the action with watersports from paragliding to waterskiing. After working up an appetite retire to your yacht or a beachside bar.

Take the 202 steps to Agios Ioannis chapel on the rocky outcrop where Meryl Streep sang her heart out in Mamma Mia! or forget Hollywood on an isolated beach where peace is the order of the day on this tiny island which oozes culture. It’s a foodie heaven with specialities including dried white plums, lobster, grouper and stuffed sea urchins!
