Panormos beach with plenty of holiday apartments and villas for rent nearby.
Travellers from Skiathos beware boats – especially hydrofoils – being diverted from the town’s breezy harbour to Agnontas, a tiny, sheltered port on the other side of the island.
This is quite common and a free bus service is supposed to take passengers on to the town. It is not unusual, however, to be abandoned in Agnontas bay with no information, no transport, no English language and no care in the world.
Skopelos town beach. Not the most attractive Greek beach we’ve ever seen.
And the only town on the island is pretty and tranquil but hardly lively.
Skopelos long view. Allergy sufferers, beware, attack of the killer pines!
