Skopelos Guide

The Greek island of Skopelos is located in the north western Aegean Sea and is one of the Northern Sporades group of islands. The island is to the east of the Pelion Peninsular on the Greek mainland and to the north of the island of Euboea. On a clear day the neighbouring island of Skiathos can clearly be seen from Skopelos. The island's port is located in the island's main town, also called Skopelos and is located on a bay on the island's northern coast.

This green island has many varieties of flowers, trees and shrubs growing on it and is one of the greenest islands in the Aegean Sea. The local vegetation is mainly comprised of forests of Aleppo Pines, Kermes Oaks, a small forest of Holm Oaks, Oleo-Ceratonion maquis, fruit trees and olive groves. Because of the need for Pine trees which were used to build ships, the island's Oak species have largely been replaced by Pine forests.

The island is served by hydrofoils and ferries from the ports of Volos Magnesia and Agios Konstantinos, Phthiotis on mainland Greece which also allows connections to and from Alonissos and Skiathos. In summer there is also a ferry to and from Kymi in Euboea.

Skiathos Guide

The small Greek island of Skiathos lies in the Aegean Sea and measures approximately 12 km in length and 6 km wide, with a total land area of roughly 50 sq. km. It forms part of the Sporades group of islands and is that island chain's smallest inhabited island where most of the population is located around its south coast. In this part of the island the hills are generally much gentler than the more rugged northern part of the island. Much of the island's interior is covered by Pine forests and is a great deal Greener than most of the other Greek islands in the Mediterranean. The island's main towns are Skiathos and Koukounaries.

The island can trace its inhabited history back to ancient times when it was founded in the 7th or 7th centuries BC by the Ionians. Over subsequent centuries Skiathos has been ruled by a number of different civilisations including the Athenians, the Spartans, the Macedonians, the Romans, the Byzantine, the Venetians and the Ottomans.

Skiathos is connected by conventional ferry and high speed ferry to Thessaloniki, the other islands in the Sporades, the islands of the Cyclades and to Crete.
