Skopelos is just 13 miles long, making it easy to explore during a relaxing week’s holiday. There are
various stunning beaches
on the island. Situated near to Skopelos Town, the most popular beach is Stafylos, which features a chilled out bar and taverna. One of the loveliest spots is the white-sand beach at Limnonari
. A 20-minute drive from Skopelos Town, it is hidden down a slip road and set in a well-sheltered cove. Even in peak season, it is still a relatively quiet spot so you can enjoy plenty of space to spread out on the sand and enjoy a dip in the calm waters of the Aegean Sea. Head for Kastani where many of the beaches were used for the filming of hit movie Mamma Mia!
If you tire of beach life, a drive around the island offers some spectacular sights. Check out the ancient hillside monastery
Evangelistria, which can be seen from Skopelos Town’s harbour. Step back in time for the day with a trip to Glossa. The village’s steep, cobbled streets and whitewashed houses with their blue shutters make it picturesque – so take your camera!
