Skopelos Greece: A Local’s 2024 Travel Guide

Skopelos Greece is a gorgeous island in the Sporades archipelago, off the northeastern coast of mainland Greece. It is affectionately known as the ¨blue green island¨ on account of its incredible natural beauty and is arguably one of the last sleepy Greek island idylls that as of yet, remains unchanged by tourism.

If you are looking for a comprehensive Skopelos Greece travel guide, you’ve found it here. This post, among others on this site, has been written by someone who spent nine months living on Skopelos island. 

Skopelos Greece 

Skopelos holidays: Cape Amarandos
Cape Amarandos

Skopelos Greece is one of 24 islands in the Sporades. (Among these, only Skopelos, Skiathos, Alonissos, and Skyros are inhabited). 

The island has less than 5,000 permanent residents and is renowned for being the greenest island in the entire Mediterranean. Beautiful Skopelos is often overshadowed in favor of its more popular neighbour Skiathos. 

Yet this little paradise has plenty to offer and is very deserved of a week or two’s itinerary in itself. You could quite easily dedicate an entire week to exploring Skopelos Greece, falling in love with its various towns and villages, each with its own personality, and conquering the different hiking trails that weave through the rural landscapes.

In recent years, Skopelos has fallen on people’s radars a lot more. This is largely as a result of being the filming location for much of the 2007 Mamma Mia movie (and the victim of Pierce Brosnans terrible singing!) 

Still, it sees a fraction of the tourists that are seen by more renowned islands like Santorini, Corfu, or Zakynthos. Travelling to Skopelos Greece really feels like you are stumbling across somewhere quite special. 

A Little History of Skopelos Greece 

Stafylos, Skopelos
Stafylos, Skopelos

Skopelos, like much of Greece, has a history that reaches back thousands of years. It is believed that the Minoans from Crete were the first people to settle here in around 1600 BC.

After the Mycenaean period, the island was occupied by the Dolopians from Thessaly in Northern Greece, who used the island as a military base. Later, people from the island of Evia moved to Skopelos and founded several of the villages that still exist today (including Glossa and Loutraki).

A tumultuous period in history saw the island fall under Venetian rule, before becoming a hideout for pirates, and then being recaptured by the Venetians once a day. There are several fascinating historic sites around Skopelos Greece that point to its past inhabitants. 

Most notably, the pirate graveyards of Sendoukia, and the sunbleached ruins of an old Venetian castle in the Chora. 

Best Things to do in Skopelos, Greece

Skopelos holidays are largely about relaxation and immersing yourself in island life. Spend your days lounging on the paradisical beaches of Kastani and Milos, and your nights tucking into fresh seafood and sumptuous Greek cuisine in quaint tavernas overlooking the seafront

Explore Skopelos town (Chora) 

Skopelos town is the island’s capital. Like the capital of many other Greek islands, you will also hear locals refer to the town as the Chora. 

The narrow, winding cobbled streets of the Chora twist and turn to reveal plazas teeming with life, adorable coffee shops, and independent boutique stores. The latter are great places to pick up souvenirs for the Grecophiles in your life, particularly local agro products such as Skopelos honey, spoon sweets (Glyka tou koutaliou), and homemade nougat.

Skopelos town is quintessentially Greek in character. Its whitewashed houses are decorated with colorful window details and bright fuchsia bougainvillea flowers.

As you ride the ferry into the port for the first time, you will note how the houses cascade down the hilltops. The town is so beautiful that it was recognized as being a place of outstanding beauty by the former Greek Prime Minister Konstantinos Karamanlis in 1978.

You could easily pass half a day meandering around Skopelos town. Consider following a route from the Church of the Virgin Mary (Panagitsa Tower), along the waterfront and past the port to the Asclepieion of Ancient Peparethos on the opposite side. 

Enjoy the regional island cuisine 

Sampling the local cuisine and trying new and unusual things is a highlight of travelling anywhere for the first time and the same can be said of visiting Skopelos Greece. The island is filled with excellent Skopelos restaurants and cute tavernas that sell Skopeliti delicacies and hearty Greek dishes.

In the Chora, be sure to add restaurant rodi (ρόδι) to your radar. Rodi means pomegranate in Greek. 

This beloved eatery is best known for its Skopeliti lamb served with plums and mouthwatering zucchini flowers. For the best gyros and souvlaki in town, head to Magali, and if you want to indulge in a selection of meze dishes (the Greek answer to tapas), stop by Stou Dimitraki. 

Terpsis is a particularly interesting taverna that can be found on the road between Skopelos town and Stafylos. This is one of the oldest restaurants on the island and has been a family business since the 1960s. 

A lot of dishes that feature on the menu are top secret and have been passed down through the family for generations. Consider ordering yourself a serving of “grandma’s stuffed chicken” from the menu. 

This Terpsis specialty has to be ordered a day in advance of dining at the restaurant so that yiayia has plenty of time to prepare and marinate the meat. The sumptuous dish is created by stuffing a plump, tender chicken with walnuts, plums, chicken livers, and herbs

Swim at Cape Amarandos

Breathtaking Scenery in Amarandos Cape
Breathtaking Scenery in Amarandos Cape

Cape Amarandos is one of Skopelos’ best-kept secrets. The image of Skopelos’ two isolated pine trees growing out from a rocky cape that juts out into the sea has become the classic “postcard image” of Skopelos. However, the area is not all that easy to find.  

Amarandos is not a beach, per se. It is a broad woodland area that consists of lots of secluded natural rock pools. Skopelitis call this area “piscina” on account of how perfect this part of the island is for swimming.  

One sadness about the region is that Skopelos and the wider Magnesia municipality are often prone to wildfires during the summer months. A fire tore through the region in the summer of 2018 and to this day, many of the trees are damaged or have not grown back. However, even so, Amarandos is still one of the most stunning sections of the island. 

To reach Amarandos, follow the questionable-looking dirt path that veers off to the left of the main road into Agnontas hamlet. Continue along as it leads you through the woods. 

The footpath to the Cape, with its infamous pine trees, can be found at the end of the road. However, there are many sections along this road where you can climb down through the trees towards the sea, and enjoy your very own private cove. 

Spend a day at Panormos beach town

Skopelos Greece

Gorgeous beaches and coastlines run around the circumference of Skopelos. There is something for everyone here – whether you are looking for places that boast all the amenities, or areas of seclusion and rugged scenery. 

If it is the former that you are looking for, head to Panormos. This is one of the island’s most popular beach towns. It sits within a secluded, crescent-shaped bay surrounded by dense pine trees.  

The calm seas and clear waters here make Panormos perfect for families travelling with children. The beach is also bordered by a bustling promenade filled with several excellent local tavernas. At the end of a day of swimming and relaxing, you will have plenty of dinner options here. 

Hike to the monasteries above Skopelos Town 

There are many pleasant Skopelos hikes and walking trails that are enjoyable all year round. One such route is the rugged path that leads you from Skopelos town up into the woodland area of Palouki.

From Skopelos town, follow the coastal promenade all the way east before following the uphill path into the woodlands. The trail is very well-marked (T1)  and it is easy to find where you are going. 

You can walk to the Holy Monastery of the Annunciation, the Agia Varvara Monastery, the Monastery of Timiou Prodromou, and the Monastery of Iera Sotiros. As you begin to leave Skopelos town behind you, you are treated to magnificent panoramas of the port area down below. 

Most monasteries are open between 8.30 and 13.30, and then again from 17.30 until 20.30. However, this is subject to change. Try to check the times with a local before making the journey so as not to arrive and find them closed. 

Have a seafood lunch at Agnontas 

Sleepy Agnontas
Sleepy Agnontas

Agnontas is a charming little fishing village that sits on the west coast of Skopelos. It is home to less than eighty permanent residents. Essentially, Agnontas is nothing more than a small waterfront strip that boasts a couple of restaurants and a coffee shop. 

But the restaurants here are some of the very best on the island, particularly if you want to indulge in fresh fish and seafood dishes. Korali restaurant and Moria fish tavern are highly regarded family businesses that have been in operation for several decades.

They pride themselves on their relationships with the local fishermen, who sail out each morning to bring them only the freshest catches. 

Agnontas makes a good starting point for exploring Limnonari beach and Cape Amarandos. You may wish to consider taking the bus from Skopelos town to Agnontas in the morning, enjoying Greek coffee and pancakes at M Coffeehouse. Then, spend a few hours swimming and exploring Cape Amarandos, before having dinner at Korali. 

Hike to the pirate graveyard of Sendoukia

A short hike through the foothills of Mount Karia and the Velouchi forest brings you to Sendoukia. The area consists of three stone sarcophagi that have been carved into the rocks and date back to the year 500 BC.

The site is often referred to as a pirate graveyard. In Skopelos, the signposts to Sendoukia reference them as the “lost graves”. But who or what was buried here? Nobody knows for certain. 

Centuries ago, barbaric pirates ruled the seas of the Mediterranean and tormented the residents of many Greek islands, including Skopelos. It is for this reason that you will find the remnants of many defensive structures and towers close to the coast and that many towns and villages were built inland. 

One theory is that Sendoukia is the final resting place for pirates. Another idea is that lost treasure has been hidden somewhere up here. Fascinatingly, very few sources actually discuss Sendoukia. Only one Greek Archaeologist has mentioned the area in his work. These Neolithic Sarcophagi date back to 500 BC. 

If you hike to Sendoukia from the start of the trailhead at Velouchi, the hike takes just 25 minutes each way. You will see a large sign for “Sendoukia” pointing towards a footpath through the trees. From here, follow the red blobs that some helpful soul has painted onto rocks and boulders. 

Consider packing a picnic and setting aside some time to revel in the views from the top. From up here, you can see all the way out to Alonissos and the uninhabited islands of the Northern Sporades. On a clear day, you can even see Mount Athos and Halkidiki in the distance. 

Venture to the Mamma Mia Church of Agios Ioannis Kastri

Skopelos Greece: The “Mamma Mia” church of Agios Ioannis Kastri

Agios Ioannis Kastri is the name of the infamous Skopelos church that was featured in the movie Mamma Mia. The name translates to mean ¨St John on the Castle¨ and the structure can be found perched precariously on the edge of a rock at the northeastern part of the island. 

200 narrow stone stairs twist around the cliff face to take you to the tiny church at the top. The interior of the church is tiny, though there are some interesting religious icons and trinkets inside, and you have the option of lighting a candle in memory of a loved one you have lost.

Spend a day in Stafylos

Stafylos beach is located on the island’s west coast, just 5km away from Skopelos town. Given its proximity to the Chora, it is one of the most popular beaches on the island. 

The beach is named after the mythical Cretan Prince Stafylos who, along with his brother Peparithos, was supposedly the very first resident of Skopelos. The scenery here aligns well with the idea of mystery, magic, and mythology. 

Stafylos beach sits at the foot of a dramatic cliff filled with pine trees. The view never fails to take your breath away regardless of how many times you visit. 

The island bus takes you to Stafylos beach. However, the walk here from the town is also very pleasant. It takes you along an old, disused road, past olive groves and secluded churches. 

The walk takes approximately an hour in each direction. So, you could walk to Stafylos, enjoy the beach, have dinner at one of the excellent tavernas nearby, and then take the bus back to town. 

A small trail from Stafylos takes you to Velanio, Skopelos’ one, and only naturist beach. There is a little food truck here during the summer months selling light snacks and refreshments, as well as a pop-up beach bar at the far end of Stafylos beach. 

Experience Skopelos Nightlife

From a nightlife perspective, Skopelos has a little something for everyone. If you are looking to indulge in a cocktail or two, head to Paraporti, Skala, or Screwdriver cocktail bar in the chora.

Some of the tavernas along the seafront, such as Ammos restaurant, host live music nights during the summer. So, you can stop by and order a carafe of ouzo poured over ice as you enjoy a live bozouki performance. 

If you want something a little more energetic, check the schedule for the beach parties that take place at Kastani or Glysteri beach.

Spend a day in Glossa Town 

Glossa, Skopelos
Glossa, Skopelos

The sleepy town of Glossa is the second-largest settlement on the island of Skopelos. Glossa actually means tongue in Greek. However, nobody is entirely certain as to why this name was given to the settlement. 

The architecture of Glossa is gorgeous and very different from Skopelos town. The houses here have been constructed with Macedonian and Pelion influences. They boast pastel-coloured walls, burgundy tiled roofs, and wooden balconies. 

The settlement is perched high in the hills and some of the streets can be quite steep. Glossa centre is something of a rabbit warren of narrow streets and passageways that open out to lively piazzas and church squares.

Your reward for trekking up the many stone steps and steep streets? The views.

Every turn in Glossa greets you with sweeping ocean vistas that truly take your breath away. 

Glossa is very deserving of an afternoon’s exploration during your time in Skopelos. Stop by the 19th Century Church of the Assumption and admire the intricate frescoes and icons inside that are dedicated to Glossa’s patron saint.

Be sure to observe the church’s “gallery of the church” exhibit which showcases 43 thought-provoking oil paintings by Skopelos Artist Alexander Sideris. 

Part of the joy of visiting Glossa is simply found in taking the time to get lost in its little streets. Stop for a meze lunch at a quaint taverna and indulge in the timeless pleasure of people-watching.

Glossa is still a very traditional place. Local women here still wear foustanes and headscarves, and residents speak a regional village dialect. 

Lounge on the shores of Kastani beach

Skopelos’ gorgeous Kastani beach was one of the main filming locations for Mamma Mia. It was here where the scenes for “Lay all your love on me”, “Does your mother know?”, and the cliff jumping scenes were filmed.

The beach looks slightly different from how it appears in the movie. The wooden pier in the film was assembled specifically for Mamma Mia. 

There is a beach bar on the eastern edge of the beach where you can enjoy cocktails and light snacks beneath your own private cabana. The western side of Kastani beach is not serviced. 

Kastani is one of the best Skopelos beaches, and arguably one of the most impeccably stunning spots in the entirety of the Sporades. It is surrounded by luscious green pine trees and craggy rock formations. During the summer months, beach parties and live DJs are hosted here on certain nights. 

Admire the view from the Panagitsa of Pyrgos 

The 17th-century Panagitsa of Pyrgos church is the first thing you see when your ship pulls into Skopelos island. This gorgeous white-painted structure sits adjacent to the Venetian castle ¨Kastro¨. From here, you can enjoy some of the best views across the town and out to Alonissos in the distance. 

Although there are hundreds of churches and monasteries in Skopelos, there are those that stand out. The Panagitsa of Pyrgos is a popular venue for weddings for both Greeks and foreign tourists. 

Its interiors are just as stunning as the outside. Follow the stone steps up to the church, admire the views from the top, and then head inside to check out the colourful frescoes and paintings from both the new and old testaments.

Go off the beaten path at Armenopetra beach

Armenopetra beach is one of the wildest and most rugged on the island. It sits just north of Neo Klima/Elios, accessible by a short hike or drive along a dirt trail. 

There are no clear signposts leading to the beach and the fact that its location is somewhat out of the way means that Armenopetra sees just a fraction of the visitors of its neighbour beaches. The beach is not serviced so you need to bring your own drinks, snacks, and towels. 

Armenopetra is the perfect stretch of coastline if seclusion and privacy are what you are looking for. The beach is surrounded by unique rock formations. Watching the sunset from this point is spectacular. 

Armenopetra also provides you with a magnificent 180-degree view of the Northern Aegean. Directly across from you, glistening on the horizon is the island of Skiathos. To your right, you can see Glossa and Loutraki port and the pastel-coloured houses of Glossa cascading down the hilly terrain. Walk just left of Armenopetra’s infamous rock formations and you can look back across to Neo Klima village. 

The dirt trail that leads you to Armenopetra passes through an area filled with some of the most exclusive and expensive villas and mansions on the island. Passing by here is an interesting experience in itself. 

Go swimming at Milia beach

Milia beach is regarded by many as being the best of Skopelos’ beaches. The proximity of Milia beach to Kastani means that you can easily cover both spots in one day. 

From here, you have incredible views of the leafy uninhabited island of Dassia – a paradisiacal spot that is only accessible by renting a boat.

Milia can get very busy during the summer months. However, there is always plenty of room to sit without being disturbed – Milia is the longest beach on the island. 

This is also Skopelos’ only sandy beach. The majority of coastlines here are rocky.

Head to a beach party at Glysteri beach

Glysteri beach, Skopelos island

Glysteri beach sits just 2km north of Skopelos town. As such, it becomes quite crowded during the summer months. This is one of the most popular (and convenient) places for those living and staying in Skopelos town to spend a day by the sea. 

A beach bar operates here during the summer months. From June to early September, parties with live DJs are often hosted at Glysteri. You can drive or take a cab to Glysteri and reach the beach within less than 10 minutes. Alternatively, the walk to the beach is pleasant. 

To walk to the beach, follow Periferiaki odos up and out of town. Continue onwards past Glifoneri beach and eventually, you will reach a crossroads. You will note a pedestrianised path leading down through the trees, marked by a hiking symbol with a yellow foot. This trail leads you past farmlands and fragrant olive groves and enables you to skip having to walk miles along the long and winding roads. 

The scenery in eastern Skopelos en route to Glysteri is among the most spectacular on the entire island. In the movie Mamma Mia, it is here where the fictitious “Villa Donna” is supposed to be located.

Getting around Skopelos

It may come as a surprise to learn that Skopelos boasts excellent transport links – especially during the summer months. There is a public bus service that runs in a circle around the island at frequent intervals throughout the day. 

Skopelos buses

The bus starts at Skopelos town and runs onwards to Stafilos, Agnondas, Panormos, Milia beach, Kastani beach, and Glossa. Tickets cost just a couple of euros each way. 

The Skopelos bus schedule is subject to change depending on the season. However, you will find the latest schedules posted on the notice board at Skopelos town port. 

As per the current 2023 Skopelos to Glossa schedule, buses depart from the port at the chora at 7.00 am, 10.00 am, 12.00 pm, 13.30 pm, 15.30 pm, and 18.00 pm.

Renting cars and bicycles 

Renting a car in Greece is not as intimidating as it may first sound. Several reputable car companies operate in Skopelos including Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Magic Cars, and Rent-A-Car Skopelos. Use a comparison website such as Discover Cars to compare the best deals between various providers.

There are several gravel roads that take you to some of the more secluded beaches on the island. However, for the most part, Skopelos roads are very flat and well-paved. This also makes the island an excellent place for cyclists. 

Taxis in Skopelos 

There are a couple of taxi ranks in Skopelos from where you will always be able to find a car. Namely, these are:

  • Outside Skopelos port in Skopelos town

  • In Glossa main square

  • In Neo Klima village

Skopelos Greece is not one of the handful of Greek islands with airports. The easiest way to reach little Skopelos depends on where you are travelling from. 

By air 

There is no airport on Skopelos island. The nearest international airport is on the adjacent island of Skiathos. 

Various European countries offer direct flights to Skiathos during the summer months, including the UK. If you are travelling out of season or from outside of Europe, you could fly into Athens or Thessaloniki and then take a domestic flight to Skiathos. 

You need to take a ferry from Skiathos to Skopelos town or Glossa. The journey takes just 20 minutes each way. 

By ferry 

There are three ferry ports on mainland Greece that service Skopelos. Ships run between the Sporades and Volos, Agios Konstantinos, and Mantoudi ports. 

Ferry schedules vary depending on the season. You can use Ferryscanner to check the latest itineraries and purchase your tickets online in advance.

Most ferries arrive at Skopelos town or Glossa port. Check the specific disembarkation point of your ship before you purchase a ticket.

Agnontas port is sometimes used when the weather is too windy or stormy to arrive at Skopelos port. Agnontas is just 20 minutes away from Skopelos town and a free bus is provided by the ferry company if you have to stop here for any reason. 

Where to Stay in Skopelos, Greece 

The island of Skopelos is the largest in the Sporades. However, it is still very small. 

You can get from one end of the island to the other (Skopelos town to Glossa) in less than two hours. Even if you opt to stay in some of the more remote parts of the island, you will not be isolated. The transportation here is fairly good and everywhere can be reached in a short period of time. 

All things considered, Skopelos town is arguably still the best place to base yourself during your Skopelos holidays. This places you right next to the port for boats to and from Volos, Skiathos, and Alonissos, and provides you with ample dining and nightlife opportunities. 

Mando Beachfront

The Mando Beachfront hotel is a gorgeous property situated just 70 meters from the seafront in Stafylos. The spacious rooms boast plush, modern furnishings, air conditioning, and unparalleled views across the sea. 

Guests can enjoy a complimentary, home-cooked breakfast prepared with produce sourced from the owner’s farm. Think fresh eggs prepared as you desire, crispy spanakopita pies, warm slices of tiropita, and delicious Skopelos jams and marmalades.

If you stay at Mando Beachfront, you can enjoy direct access to the beach via a private walking trail. The colorful gardens that encompass the property are also equipped with barbeques and outdoor seating, for if you ever feel like cooking your own bbq. 

Skopelos Village Hotel 

Skopelos Village Hotel is a luxury Skopelos property without the luxury price tag. The hotel is situated on the peaceful eastern corner of Skopelos town, a short walk away from the monasteries of Palouki.

The scenic whitewashed building boasts breathtaking views of the open sea from its rooms and suites. The rooms have been decorated in an elegant, contemporary style, with furnishings of quintessentially Greek blue and white. 

Rooms start from around €80 per night. You can check the latest room rates and availability here

Do you have any burning questions or concerns about visiting Skopelos Greece for the first time? Hopefully, you will find the answers you are looking for below!

Is Skopelos very touristy?

Skopelos holidays

Skopelos has its share of dedicated visitors that often flock to the island between June and August each year. However, it sees a fraction of the tourists that are seen on other, more well-known Greek islands like Santorini, Crete, and Hydra. 

None of the restaurants and cafes here are tourist traps. They all sell excellent, authentic Greek cuisine. 

Similarly, the stores here sell stunning handmade apparel, artisanal goods, and deli products, rather than tourist tat. Travel here out of season (April/May or mid-September) and you may find you have a lot of places completely to yourself. 

What is Skopelos known for?

Amarandos Cape Skopelos Greece

Skopelos is perhaps best known for being the filming location for Mamma Mia. However, Greeks know Skopelos as an island of unparalleled natural beauty, pristine beaches, and walking trails.

Is Skopelos a party island?

Skopelos holidays

Skopelos is a sleepy, laidback, and tranquil place. It definitely isn’t a raucous party island. 

Keep in mind that there are a few places where you can go after the sun sets to drink and dance. (Check out Screwdriver club in the chora, or the all-night beach parties at Kastani beach during the summer).

If you want wild parties though, you are better off headed to nearby Skiathos, Zante, or Mykonos.

Do they speak English in Skopelos?

Most people that work in tourist-facing businesses in Skopelos speak English. Most Greeks in general, have a very good knowledge of English. 

Can you walk around Skopelos?

Skopelos is a very walkable island. There are a number of dedicated short and long-distance hiking trails around the island, and roads are very pedestrian-friendly too. 

You do not need a car in Skopelos town. You can get everywhere you need to go on foot. 

Can you drink the tap water in Skopelos?

The tap water in Skopelos (and all of Greece) is clean and safe to drink. Having ice in your drinks here is also perfectly safe. 

Is Skopelos crowded?

Skopelos is seldom if ever crowded. The island sees a steady trickle of tourists during summer in Greece. 

But it never feels as though it is heaving with crowds. Even in the height of summer, you are sure to find a secluded beach/stretch of coastline to yourself. 

Final thoughts on visiting Skopelos Greece

Skopelos, Greece, often recognized as the “Mamma Mia” island, is a picturesque gem where the emerald waters meet the lush landscape. This enchanting island, renowned for its pristine beaches and the charming Port of Skopelos, is steeped in history and culture. 

The traditional architecture, especially in villages like Elios, is amphitheatrically laid out, echoing tales from the 16th century. The island’s olive oil, a testament to its rich natural bounty, adds to Skopelos’ allure, making it a must-visit destination.
