Travellers and activities
When you think Skopelos beaches think dreamy sandy and pebble coves with a backdrop of softwood forests and turquoise and crystalline waters. Going swimming? Halfway up the west coast, the two white-pebble beaches of Armenopetra Beach are the best on the island for swimming. Here with your family? Glisteri Beach, the closest beach to Skopelos Town, is the most convenient beach with the best infrastructure on the island. Want to get away from the crowds? The cliff-flanked beach of Hovolo Beach is one of the island’s most secluded, as it can only be reached by sea from.Skopelos for watersports lovers
With a coastline that is burrowed with snug little coves, Skopelos is a fine destination for calm-water watersports such as kayaking, snorkelling and stand-up paddleboarding. The latter sport has really exploded in popularity over the last ten years, and at Panormos in west Skopelos there is a dedicated paddleboarding centre where you can try out this burgeoning sport. Looking to go kayaking? Beautiful Agnontas bay in the southwest of the island is home to the best kayaking on the island.Skopelos for fans of Mamma Mia
The church of Agios Iannis is home to the most famous location from the uplifting musical Mamma Mia. Even if Sophie’s wedding scene hadn’t been filmed at this church, Agios Iannis, set atop an improbably steep outcrop buffeted by the wind and waves, would still be a must-see! The 198-step climb is tricky, but it will all be forgotten when you reach the terrace and see the delightful cove way below, with the yachts bobbing in the turquoise waters.
Despite its modest size, Skopelos has more than 360 churches and monasteries which you can visit!
