Skopelos belongs to the Sporades group and has three main ports: Skopelos (Hora), Agnontas and Glossa. It is the greenest island in Greece . Here, where the green of the pines and dense virgin forest meets the deep blue sea and sky, creating an image of natural beauty, you will find yourself in a small paradise with eye-catching landscapes, azure and crystal blue waters on golden coasts.
Wander around the small streets, starting from Pigadaki and let the alleys ascend to the castle stopping every so often to admire the spectacular views. When you think that you got lost inside them, just go down to one of them taking you to the port. Or you can start from the Panagitsa Tower on the edge of the harbor all the way up to the castle. This path is like a flashback. Splendid churches, picturesque alleys, steep cliffs and the Aegean open in front of you, is rather impressive. Such is the beauty of this town that really wins from the first time.
Skopelos has no shortage of wonderful sun-drenched beaches stretching uninterrupted along the island’s pine covered coastline.

They have a unique diversity (may be long, small bays and coves, sandy or pebbly beaches, coastal caves with steep cliffs, coastal wetlands), but everybody loves the purity and clarity of the waters, that are so popular and loved.
