Sailing holidays from Skiathos
Weather conditions in the Sporades are very favourable for a sailing holiday from Skiathos. Afternoon breezes Force 3-5 from the north-east give good sailing from mid-morning to early evening. In July and August the meltemi can bring stronger winds Force 5-6, but all the islands have good shelter. Summer temperatures reach 27-29ºC.
Start your bareboat yacht charter in Skiathos harbour and sail westwards from Skiathos to the attractive harbours and bays on the islands of Skopelos and Alonissos. Drop anchor at Peristeri and Pelargos, uninhabited nature reserves at the far west of the Sporades archipelago. See our suggested sailing itinerary below.
Or sail east into the Gulf of Volos and discover fishing harbours and deserted bays completely unspoilt by tourism. On a 2-week sailing holiday you can plan a sailing itinerary to include both the Sporades islands and the Gulf of Volos
