Holidays to Skopelos are all about crystal-clear waters and natural beauty, not to mention the Greek charm of the authentic main town.
Skopelos is a lush green island off the eastern coast of Greece
that's held onto its natural look. Whether you’re a hiker, swimmer or simply a sucker for rustic scenery, you’re sure to be bowled over by the hidden pebble beaches, fragrant forests and peaceful plum orchards that call this island home.
In the sticks
Skopelos is bursting at the seams with authenticity. Stafilos, just south of the island's capital, is a sleepy place where lofty pines and bougainvillea-covered houses fringe a modest, sandy bay. Head north-west to Glossa and you’ll effectively go back in time. With its colourful window shutters, unhurried vibe and classical Venetian towers, this old-world hamlet's right out of a history book.
The island's capital Skopelos Town
overflows with Greek charm. Wander the hilly alleyways and you'll find lively jazz bars, quaint boutiques and fancy seafood restaurants just as compelling as the Byzantine churches and Venetian fortress. Tuck in to a local cheese pie at a welcoming taverna along the old port.
