Skopelos


Skopelos is located about 30 kilometers off the coast. It’s opposite the Pelon peninsula. The island has an area of approximately 90 km˛ with close to 5000 people living there. It is part of the Sporades group.

Skopelos is considerably less touristic than Skiathos. One could wonder why. The island is quite pretty. One reason is the obvious. Skiathos has an airport where Skopelos doesn’t. As a result they get fewer package holiday makers which in many ways is a good thing.

The island is covered with forest. That’s quite unusual for a Greek island. Most of the trees are pines.

The local capital is Skopelos-town (Chora). It is a must go. There are around 100 churches and chapels in Skopelos. Even if you think one church is enough you won’t be disappointed. The town is picturesque and has some reputation its “classic” architecture.

Another place we recommend to see is Loutraki with the nearby acropolis of Selinoutra. Don’t miss Glossa, the second biggest settlement on the island. It is tranquil and some say even prettier than chora.

To get to Skopelos take a boat from Volos, Agios Konstantinos or any of the other islands in the group.

 

Sights you should not miss in Berlin Germany are the Holocaust Memorial Berlin or the great Berlin Zoo.
