Thinking of holidays in Skopelos? Then you're in for a treat. The biggest island of the Northern Sporades archipelago, Skopelos remains unblighted by mass summer crowds, making it a truly peaceful Greek refuge.
Draped in virgin pinewoods and olive groves, the island is a feast for the eyes and soul, with its emerald greenery tumbling down to a coastline honeycombed with pebble bays, natural harbours and solitary coves. Rising from the interior, medieval monasteries, mysterious pirate graves, tiny rock chapels and gurgling wells provide perfect reasons for explorers to set out. Along the shoreline, a handful of traditional towns perch above gorgeous bays, creating pockets of charm for holidaymakers. In the capital Skopelos Town, an exquisite Aegean harbour town awaits, with flower-decorated cottages, a bustling waterfront, sugar-white churches and stepped streets rising to a Venetian castle. Whilst at Glossa and its port of Loutraki you'll find a quieter scene, complete with lovely harbourfront.
Holidays in Skopelos will lure beach fanatics too. From the main Stafilos beach to stunning Panormos bay and innumerable deserted coves only reached by foot or hire boats, there's every kind of beach, all blessed by bright blue-green seas.
