This small island in the Aegean Sea is the northernmost of the Dodecanese islands, a very popular stop in Greece. The total area of the island is 35 sq km and it has a population of nearly 300 people. Needles to say, during the summer season, that number increases significantly when the tourists arrive.
Yacht Charter in Greece
The name comes from “sporadic” because the islands are scattered on great distances in the Aegean Sea waters but the Sporades are perfect examples of Greek lifestyle especially because they’re situated so far from the rest of the resorts that make up the main tourist circuit in yacht charter Greece.
The name literally translates to the “Twelve islands” and in Greece they are widely regarded as a “must visit” for the yacht charter sailor due to their beauty, their position and the typical Greek way of life they portray. In fact, there are way more than 12 islands, there are also 150 smaller islands out of which only 26 are inhabited.
For those who enjoy the yacht charter circuit, these islands hold no secret as they are wildly regarded as the classic destination for sailing trips. The Cyclades in Greece are a series of some 200 islands that are scattered throughout the Aegean Sea, and constitute a sunny maze worth exploring aboard your boat.
