Skopelos is geographically located between the islands of Skiathos and Alonissos in the Sporades complex. It is considered among the greenest islands in the Aegean Sea, as the largest part of Skopelos is covered in lush pine forests, fruit trees and olive groves. Steep cliffs and picturesque villages complete the beautiful landscape of Skopelos.
Even though the island became worldwide famous after scenes of the Hollywood movie Mamma Mia were filmed there, Skopelos remains untouched by mass tourism and has not lost its authentic character. It is an island with rich history and unique local cuisine. Skopelos Town and Glossa are the main villages, both picturesque settlements with traditional architecture. Some of the most popular beaches are Panormos, Stafylos and Elios. Skopelos is easy to reach by ferry from Volos and Agios Konstantinos, or from the other Sporades islands.
