Sporades is a complex of islands situated in the north Aegean Sea, close to mainland Greece. It is comprised mainly of four islands, Skiathos, Skopelos,Alonissos and Skyros, many other isles and rocks, with common characteristics the crystal, deep blue waters and the rich flora, the pine trees reach down  to the sea level, giving a turquoise color to the sea.
