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.
Our choice of best beach on the island, the soft sand and protected waters of Limnonari beach in September.
Stafilos, the best beach within walking distance of the little town. Visited at high tide we assume.
