Introducing Skopelos

Skopelos is a handsome island of pine forests, vineyards, olive groves and orchards of plums and almonds, which find their way into many local dishes.

Like Skiathos, the high cliffs of the northwest coast are exposed, while the sheltered southeast coast harbours several sand-and-pebble beaches. There are two settlements: the capital and main port of Skopelos Town on the east coast and the northwest village of Glossa, 2km north of Loutraki, the island’s second port (but referred to in ferry timetables as ‘Glossa’).
