This island is the largest and greenest in the Sporades region with lush pine-covered mountains sweeping down to sheltered beaches and coves. I
t is simply beautiful and traditionally Greek, one of the reasons why it was chosen as a location for the recent movie 'Mamma Mia'.
The main town and harbour of Skopelos brims with picturesque white churches and white Pelion slate-roofed houses, cascading down the hillside from the ruins of the Venetian castle above.
The old town is a maze of quaint cobbled streets and steps, with a church on virtually every corner – there are 125 in the town alone.
The bustling harbour front is very cosmopolitan with cafes, bars and tavernas and a large selection of restaurants
invite you to taste the traditional cuisine and local fish and produce.
