Despite being renowned more for its natural assets than as a trendy resort island, Skopelos has a fun nightlife with a lot on offer. The island of Skopelos has an historical musical background and its nightlife still plays tribute to this. There are great bars along the waterfront and up on the hill, and a good selection of nightclubs, discos and music halls where visitors can dance the night away. There are also a couple of Greek bouzouki venues, as well as open-air taverns offering traditional Greek nights with live music and dancing which are particularly entertaining and a great way to get into the Greek frame of mind. The Skopelos nightlife is at its peak during July and August, when the holiday season is in full swing, but February is also a great time to party on the island as it celebrates the annual Skopelos Carnival with copious amounts of traditional food, drink and merriment. It is a lively and friendly island which is becoming increasingly popular, not least of all because those who do not want to participate in the party culture can easily creep away to enjoy a quiet, romantic evening or a wholsome family holiday.
