Skopelos Island

Skopelos is exceptionally beautiful, with scenic coves, white churches and monasteries among farmhouses glimpsed through olive groves on even slopes under a brilliant sun. The island also fascinates the visitor with its historical past, the ruins of the medieval castle and the ruins of the ancient temple.

More than 60 beaches adorn Skiathos, the homeland of Alexandros Papadiamantis, the renowned Greek writer. Skiathos is only 2.4 miles from the coast of southern Pilio and 4 miles from Skopelos.

Calm is an inherent feature of Alonissos, one of the first islands in the Aegean to be inhabited. The island’s old capital has found new life in the last few years.

Alonissos Marine Park
Alonnisos is the perfect place from which to head for the National Marine Park, where one my encounter the protected species Monachus Monachus which lives in the caves of the island within the Park.
