travel42 Port Guide: Skopelos

Skopelos travel42 Port of Call Guide

Once a Venetian possession, this island 75 mi/120 km north of Athens in the Sporades has beautiful sandy beaches, cobblestoned streets, flowers, numerous bays, pine and olive trees, and churches—many boast frescoes, carved-wood pulpits and Byzantine icons.

The island's main town, Skopelos Town, is significant for its three monasteries on Mount Palouki. The best beaches are reached by private motorboats or daily commercial boats.
