Area Overview

Skopelos is one of the North Aegean Islands off the coast of Greece. Naturally mountainous, it remains beautifully unspoiled, with scenic inland walking trails meandering through pine forests, orchards and olive groves. It is also the island that Hollywood blockbuster Mama Mia was filmed on. The Island offers a variety of beaches, from quiet coves that can only be reached by boat to pebbly bays that provide idyllic mountain views. From way up in the surrounding lush-green hills, white cottages tumble down to the waterfront of the Island’s capital, Skopelos Town, providing the perfect backdrop to relax, whilst at night the tiny bars and restaurants are a hive of activity and entertainment. Culture enthusiasts can enjoy the island’s beautiful monasteries and old-world villages.

When to go to Skopelos

Tourists tend to start coming to Skopelos in May when the temperature averages around 20°C and the island tends to be at its most colourful. Between June and September, temperatures tend to stay above 30°C. The lowest temperatures are between November and March, with November and December typically having the most rainfall.

Annual events include the Plum Festival, celebrating the annual plum harvest with sweet baked plums and local wine, and the Loizos Festival, which celebrates Manos Loizos, one of Greece’s most famous musicians. The Summer Festival is also a popular event that sees the whole island, particularly Skopelos Town and Glossa, enjoy huge banquets, costume parades and dancing to celebrate the end of summer.
