Skopelos is a wonderful island that stands out for its lush vegetation, its exotic beaches, and its picturesque villages. Villages like Skopelos Town and Glossa boast a unique traditional architecture that makes them incredibly photogenic. In these villages, you’ll find a great selection of Skopelos hotels, shops and traditional taverns where you can taste the local delicacies!
Off the villages are numerous beaches with crystal clear cobalt waters, such as Stafylos, Panormos, and Elios. A drive along the island’s coastline, though, will get you to many secluded beaches.
Thanks to its close distance to other islands of the Sporades island chain, Skopelos is a great base for island hopping. Popular island-hopping itineraries are from Skopelos to Skiathos and from Skopelos to Alonissos.
The most popular site in Skopelos is hands down the church of Agios Ioannis Kastri. That’s because the wedding scenes of Mamma Mia movie were shot there. Today, many tourists visit the church of Agios Ioannis to marvel at the romantic setting!
