Skopelos Beaches, Greece Islands

 Skopelos town street, Greece

Skopelos town on a busy September afternoon.

Next to Skiathos and still in the Sporades islands, Skopelos island has its fans. It’s bigger than Skiathos, with the same pine tree rockscapes but a more tranquil, rustic air and a charming, lazy town. Many, however, would find it a little too lazy, well short of variety and action, though suited to those who prefer a quiet life.

Skopelos

Skopelos’ only road.

Beaches are accessible via the one hardtop road on the island and are mostly small, pebbly and way less attractive than those on Skiathos. The best of the bunch is Limnonari and the worst Skopelos town beach. Buses cover the route regularly, though personal transport makes life a lot easier.
