A few words about Skopelos island
Skopelos is a beautiful green island and belongs to the northern Sporades. It is definitely what we would call an alternative island for holidays and vacations, since it maintains its beauty and serenity intact and of course its traditional character!
The beaches on the north and east side of Skopelos are rocky, while in the south and west the slopes create the beautiful green beaches of the island. On the south side are the most of the beaches located: Stafylos, Velanio, Agnontas, Limnonari, Panormos, Antrines, Milia, Ratchet, Elios, Armenopetra, Agios Ioannis in Kastri and many others, “drowned” in the green of the pine forests.
Do you want feel like the movie star of Mamma Mia? If the answer is yes, all you have to do is stay in the place where your favorite actors stayed, or you can even have your wedding on the beautiful island!
The island does not have an airport, so the options are via ferry from Thessaloniki, Athens or Skiathos and by plane through Skiathos!
The island has a wonderful camping, so nature lovers have only to choose this campsite for their stay!
