What to see in Skopelos

Skopelos Attractions

Skopelos poses as the fictional island of Kalokairi in the movie Mamma Mia and is home to many attractions, including 380 churches, a number of gorgeous beaches and a wonderful display of spring wild flowers and butterflies (from April to May). There are both sand beaches, such as Staphylos and Limnonari, and pebble beaches, like Panormos and Milia. In winter, the island is sometimes covered in a beautiful blanket of snow. Other Skopelos attractions include the Folklore Museum of Skopelos and the National Marine Park, which is the largest marine conservation area in Europe and a glorious area to explore. The main draw of the island is its beautiful natural landscapes and the fact that it is still largely unspoiled by tourist infrastructure - though it is easy to get around and all necessary amenities are in place.

Skopelos is a great place for romantic getaways or family holidays. There are wonderful beaches for children, such as Staphylos and Panormos, where kids can snorkel and swim, as well as a few deserted coves at Amarandos beach to picnic at. Horse riding is available for children on the island, as well as various sailing trips for all ages to enjoy.
