Skopelos

Beaches · Nightlife · Landmarks
Green Jewel on Blue
Known as one of the Aegean's greenest islands, Skopelos features a long coastline of fine beaches and an interior covered with verdant pine forests, olive groves, and plum orchards. The island's two major towns remain its busiest areas, providing visitors with a good selection of shops, bars, and traditional taverns. Farther away from its lively beaches, Skopelos maintains a pure island atmosphere and preserves its slow pace of life. Notable places to visit include almost 400 churches and monasteries, the oldest of which dates to the 11th century. Embark on your Aegean adventure by exploring the town of Skopelos, a small settlement of whitewashed buildings and steep backstreets. Customize your holiday with our Greece vacation builder tool to create an adventure that suits you.
