Day 1: Check-in
On Monday afternoon, starting from 6 pm, you will be welcomed by your BeBlue skipper at Skiathos Marina, where you can store your things in the boat, prepare the shopping list and go shopping. In the evening, the crew and the skipper have the possibility to get to know each other in front of a nice fish dinner in a typical Greek restaurant in Skiathos, before concluding the evening in one of the many bars in this lovely coastal town.
Once done with your breakfast and the last shopping, we can finally set sail. Soon after unmooring, we head for Skiathos to discover the smallest and most eastern island of the Sporades. We will anchor in the most hidden and uncontaminated bays of the sixty beaches of the island, most of them sandy and surrounded by scented maritime pines. At anchor, sheltered from the wind, we will spend unforgettable moments.
After breakfast and a couple of morning dives, we raise sail towards the east and navigate for five miles until we reach Skopelos, a surprisingly green island with uncontaminated nature, crystal clear water and enchanting views. Skopelos is a magic island, fully fascinating thanks to its myriad of little houses connected through narrow alleys and many stairs where time has stopped. Golden sand bays, taverns, little churches and white monasteries standing out in the intense blue will be the setting of your holidays.
After a rich breakfast, we continue the exploration of Skopelos with its high mountains that surround verdant valleys, thick coniferous forests and unforgettable little coves where you can go fishing and snorkeling. You will have the possibility of visiting the chief town of the island with its vivid atmosphere, and to walk around the lovely old town and up the stone stairways taking you to the ancient fortress.
After breakfast, we set sail in the early morning towards Alonissos, the remotest of the Sporades but the closest to nature, protected by the biggest marine park in Europe. Its super clean sea and the wonderful seabeds are the joy of seals and of those who love immersions or simply snorkeling. The Chora of the island is particularly nice: it is located on a cliff over the sea and has many nice alleys, little shops and picturesque bars and taverns.
After a relaxing breakfast and an unavoidable morning bath, we start sailing close to the islands of Alonissos and Peristera. You can enjoy the view of these gems of the Aegean Sea from the water: they are known as some of the most beautiful Greek islands, and the Marine Park with the empty islets will provide a wonderful setting for your swims and explorations with the tender we have on board. Another night at anchor is waiting for you with a sky full of stars and planets, in the uncontaminated nature of this corner of the Aegean Sea.
It’s already Sunday and we start sailing to the west, towards our return port. This will be a relaxing day, in which you can sunbath and swim to take home some of the salt of the Aegean. We have time for another anchorage and a visit to a new bay, where we can have lunch and enjoy the last sun rays before going back to the Marina in the early afternoon. You can also rent a scooter and visit the last hidden corners of Skiatohos, to find the last souvenirs and enjoy the last dinner of your trip.
