The Sporades are a Greek archipelago reachable both from Theassaloniki or Athens. Main islands are Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonnisos
Peristera is an island habited by only 30 people and reachable by day-tours from Alonnisos, the nature is impressive as part of the Alonnisos Marine Park, the biggest in Europe of this kind.
From there, every day boat filled with tourists leave the harbor for day long tours.
Have always your swimsuit ready when you visit the city, it will become too hot.
They told me that there is a track linking the harbour city of Alonnisos with the main village (Old Town) at the top of the island. The way is still long.
Traditionally, housing consisted of closely constructed houses with stone walls.
The old village suffered a heartquake in the 1965. A lot of buildings have been restored and opened for tourism.
Alonnisos is the less touristic developed, but more autentic.
Agios (St.) Dimitrios is a popular beach with an unusual shape, it is reachable by private bus that organize day-trips there.
After the old harbor, continue to walk coasting the sea for unforgettable views.
Unfortunately this island lacked of camping facilities, anyway it was the set of the musical "Mamma Mia!".
Koukounaries is surely the most popular beach of Skiathos, at the evening the wild animals retake their territories.
Alonissos has to offer different emotions from Skyathos
A good walk from the harbor will bring you into a wild paradise populated with free camping campers that enjoy this when they wake up.
