Skopelos is a Greek island located in the Aegean Sea, laying to the east of the Greek mainland. There are many ferry routes departing the port each day, heading to popular islands laying nearby as well as coastal resorts on the mainland of Greece.
Covered in 80% forest, Skopelos exudes a tropical vibe that belies its Mediterranean location; the island is decorated in verdant plant life in the central areas and golden sands along the glistening shoreline – when the sun shines down in the summer it reveals the wave of colours that make Skopelos so beautiful. The rise in tourism received a huge spark after the film ‘Mamma Mia’ was filmed there, showcasing the glorious aesthetics. Since then, many flock to the island to enjoy the tranquil atmosphere in the daytime, and let their hair down when the night falls upon the array of cool bars and welcoming tavernas.
Most choose to spend the afternoon under the rays of the sun, basking in the heat and working on getting a tan on Panormos Beach or Kastani Beach. However, for the more adventurous, canoeing and kayaking bring an adrenaline rush to anyone who’s adept on the water. Away from the coastline, Stafilos and Glossa are two small villages that represent the archaic architecture synonymous with Greece; whitewashed houses stand proud against alluring chapels and churches. The villages embody all that is desirable about Skopelos – an untouched landscape bound together by a welcoming atmosphere.
A bus service is in operation around the island, as well as rental car and motorcycle companies so transport is wide and varied.
