Calling all beach bums
You’ll never want to leave the coastline here. Stafylos Beach is nothing short of spectacular, with pine trees cloaking the cliffside and azure waters twinkling in the sunlight. A slither of shingle shore beckons or you can head for Velanio Beach just around the bay. This is the place to strap on your snorkel and dive beneath the surface.
A breath of fresh air
Skopelos is famed for its rugged good looks. Dense pine forest blankets more than half the island, making it the greenest in all of Greece. You’ll also find vineyards, orchards and olive groves, creating a lush hinterland to explore. Walking routes wind through the hillsides, passing historic monasteries along the way – nearby Mount Palouki is a great place to try.
