One of the most beautiful islands of Sporades, Skopelos is characterised by its absolute "agreement" between the green of nature and the blue of the sea. In fact, the movie "Mamma mia" made that "agreement" universally known as part of its filming took place in Skopelos. With a low profile, however, and without the mass tourism that overwhelms Skiathos, it is an island that offers beautiful images to its visitors.
Within about half an hour by boat from Skiathos, it is ideal for a day trip. Your acquaintance, then, starts at Chora and the Port of the island, which due to the architecture of its buildings –stone cottages with roofs made with Pelion plate and wooden balconies- has been designated since 1978 as a traditional settlement.
The walk through the steep alleys is considered a must and rest assured that it will fill your memory with countless colourful "clicks". There you can visit the Folklore Museum of Skopelos, Pavlos Nirvanas house which now hosts the History Museum of Skopelos, and Vakratsas Mansion. Those who are a bit romantic will surely enjoy a walk on the coastal walkway, while we strongly recommend you to sit at one of the cafes and try traditional donuts and the famous local cheese pie.
Do not forget to spend some time in one of the beautiful beaches with turquoise, crystal clear waters. The most famous ones include Stafylos (a path leads to Velanio, a favourite choice for nudist), Agnontas, Panormos, Kastani, Milia and Limnonari.
Finally, if you have time, visit Glossa, the second settlement of the island at its northern end. Amphitheatrically built, it is characterised by the picturesque environment and the tranquillity prevailing in the cobbled streets as "motion" here is not so common.
