Description

A holiday in Skopelos is nothing if not an escape to Arcadia: with 65 km of largely inaccessible coast, this is an island where tiny coves wait to be explored by boat, goat tracks lead upward to ancient mountain springs and forgotten Byzantine convents, and lanes lined with mulberry trees lead to long, sleepy beaches. There is little development in this part of Greece, still no airport, and even Skopelos Town itself – declared a Traditional Settlement of Outstanding Beauty – has too many steps and turns for any heavy traffic.
