The greenest in the Aegean Sea
Charming and lovely, exciting and sophisticated, lively
and tranquil. There are many such adjectives to describe this shimmering
emerald of the Aegean. Skopelos is an island for everyone's taste. Ideal for
those who want to do more than lie on the beach all day. A terrific place to
explore. An unforgettable adventure in idyllic surroundings.
Lying between Skiathos and Alonnissos, Skopelos is the
second island in the Northern Sporades chain. It extends 13 miles length by
5 miles width, covers 96 square kilometres and is situated in a geographical
with of 38º, like Sardinia, the Majorca islands and Ibiza of Spain, the
Azores of Portugal and California of the USA.
The island is very mountainous and is made up of two massifs of
unequal size. The mountain folds form many ravines and gorges which become small torrents
during the wet season. Geographically speaking, Skopelos can be regarded as an extension of
the Pelion peninsula. According to the last census in 2011, the
whole island had 5.041 inhabitants.
