General Information. Many visitors think this is the prettiest island of the Sporades, or even Greece, since the buildings are old and white, with huge bougainvillea and flowerpots, it's full of churches and it is completely covered with forest. The landscape is dramatic, with high mountains and deep valleys. The island is composed of two rock massifs of unequal size. A narrow plain that runs from the bay of Skopelos, the capital, south to Cape Stafilos, separates the two parts. The smaller, eastern part is very steep and inaccessible. The summit of the cliffs, is Palouki, the maximum height is 567 m. Skopelos located very near to Alonissos and Skiathos. Around Skopelos there are the small islands of Mikro and agios Geoorgios
The capital, Skopelos, is quite big but very quiet and clean. Most beaches on the island are pebble beaches, and it is a good idea to rent a vehicle to get around. The town of Skopelos is a traditional island town with characteristic architecture and beautiful streets. It has been declared as a heritage settlement. The countryside and the entire island is full of old traditional churches
Skopelos has been marketed by most major tour operators as a quiet island best suited for couples and families. This is not completely true, since there are many bars and quite a few clubs on the island. It is not a place for partying all day and all night, but there is quite a good nightlife in a jazzy, sophisticated way.
The locals work with agriculture and tourism, and there are also fishermen. Because there is a big photograph exhibition here every summer the island gets quite cosmopolitan, with photographers and visitors from all over Greece and the rest of the world.
