S K O P E L O S : The most beautiful Sporade's island.
The colorful main town of Skopelos itself is a unique place where you will enjoy your walks through the narrow streets.
Skopelos is the second largest island in Sporades, 60 nautical miles from Volos.
It's a picturesque island with lots of water, wonderful beaches and white houses with green-blue roofs.

Skopelos, was known by the name of Peparithos.
It was a colony of Minoas and it's said that he was the first who came to stay and became king of the island was Stafilos, son of Dionysos and Ariadne.
A grave that was found in 1927 in the location of Stafilo is believed that is his.

Wonderful beaches in Agnondas, Panormos, Milia and Elios.

You will also be able to visit Byzantine and other historical monuments on the island, such as the pirate's graves at Sedoukia.
