Green and blue pearl

Skopelos is an island belonging to the group of Northern Sporades (Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonnisos and Skyros) and it is situated in the central-northwest Aegean. It is 17km long and 8km wide with a population of approximately 5.700 inhabitants.

Skopelos is truly the greenest island in Greece (officially proclaimed by International Organization of Biopolitics "Green and Blue Island") and reminds me a lot of Dalmatia in Croatia. Here, the dense green of the pine-trees mix with the deep blue of sea and sky making it an ideal place to relax and enjoy holidays.

Not only nature is beautiful but also the town of Skopelos is popular with its traditional houses and its panoramic layout. There are few other villages and towns on the island the bigger one Glossa at the northern end of it.
Definetly a very romantic and relaxing island to visit….You won’t regret
