Skopelos, Greece

Skopelos is the largest island in the Northern Sporades Islands. The island is located east of mainland Greece, northeast of the island of Euboea and is part of the Prefecture of Magnesias in the Periphery of Thessaly. Skopelos is also the name of the main port and the municipal center of the island. The other communities of the island are Glossa and Neo Klima (Elios). The geography of Skopelos includes two mountains over 500 meters; Delphi (681 meters) in the center of the island, and Palouki (546 meters) in the southeast. With an area of 95 km² (36.6 mi²) Skopelos is slightly larger than Mykonos (85 km²) and Santorini (73 km²). The nearest inhabited islands are Skiathos to the west and Alonissos to the east.

Skopelos is one of the greenest islands in the Aegean Sea. The island has a wide range of flowers, trees and shrubs. The local vegetation is chiefly made up of forests of Aleppo Pines, Kermes Oaks, a small forest of Holm Oaks, fruit trees and olive groves.

What to see in Skopelos town

The island has more than 360 churches and chapels. Most are closed through the years except for the feast day of whom or whatever the church has been dedicated. Most have been privately built. The oldest existing ecclesiastical structure is the basilica of Agios Athanasios built in the 11th century and located in the Kastro area.

Skopelos Beaches

Skopelos has excellent beaches. The south-west side of the island has sandy beaches with calm waters. The wind mostly comes in from the north and also the sea tends to be somewhat rougher to the north.

Going clockwise around the island, the main destinations for the sun-swim-and-sand seeker are:
  • Staphylos Small sandy beach with a couple of basic changing rooms and a small snack bar. Can be crowded.
  • Agnondas Small beach, not much developed, with a small settlement with stores, etc.
  • Limnonari With Milia, the best beach on the island. Get off the bus at Agnondas and walk along the road through Agnondas in the same direction the bus was going for about ten minutes until you read the end of a hairpin turn, where there are prominent signs pointing out the way to Limnonari. About twenty minutes walk along this path lies Limnonari; you won't see the beach until you're almost there. Limnonari is not much developed but has one very basic taverna.
  • Panormos An excellent gravelly beach and the most built-up of the island's beach resorts, with numerous tavernas and hotels.
  • Milia Excellent pebbly beach with a beach bar and a couple of simple tavernas and hotels.
