  • Hiking
  • Bird watching

If you are on the island in the last ten days of August, a must is to watch the cultural events that culminate in the celebration of the humble plum.

Fishing for supper or just getting to know the locals

The keen early morning bargaining around the kaikia along the quays proves that the fishing fleets of Skopelos are still a going concern. Restaurants and even individual households buy direct from the boat, as do some visitors. Some holidaymakers even bring or buy a rod to catch their owns supper along the beaches and quays and chartered deep-sea fishing trips are also an option here. A few words of Greek will win you new friends wherever you go.

Biking, bird watching, exploring, hiking

An increasing number of visitors are exploring the wonders of Skopelos beyond its beaches and harbour cafes. The expanding network of vehicle-free kalderimi stone paths, takes you deep into the primeval forests and up into its spectacular mountain fastnesses, to hike or just picnic, bird watch, plant-spot or simply to marvel at the views. The cooling natural and potable spring at Ayia Anna, is just one of the island’s many kept secrets. While it is not recommended in the heat of midday or high summer, the best way to explore the island is off-road, by foot, bike or mountain bike, at the speed nature intended.

Private boat trips

A private boat trip is a special and unique experience for each new visitor to Skopelos. Chartered trips allow you to explore the natural beauty, sandy pebbly beaches, rocky coves and the crystal, clear waters of Skopelos and the neighbouring islands. All of these hidden treasures are accessible only through Skopelos Island boat tours.

Enjoy a boat trip exploring beautiful destinations and crystal blue waters of the islands of Skopelos and Skiathos on the wonderful “Bayliner”!

Beachfront Position

The Ionisi is nestled in a lush pine-tree forest right on the Blue Flag-certified Panormos Beach. With a coastline of mostly steep cliffs, the island's beaches have a special importance and are noted for their immaculate condition. The hillsides are made up of wild flowers and fruit trees, olive groves and pines and are dotted with small churches and whitewashed monasteries. The only sounds are the bells of wandering goats and the calls of birds and everywhere you look there are dramatic views across the Aegean Sea to neighbouring islands.

Reached by hydrofoil or ferry from Skiathos, stepping onto Skopelos feels like you have shed a life of stress and media bombardment and entered a world of simple, timeless pleasures: translucent waters, cerulean skies, star-filled nights, good food and wine in friendly company.

The steep, winding warren of Skopelos Town and the intimate tavernas under the lights of the waterfront, are part of the changeless pleasures of Greek island life. Skopelos Town is 16 km away and is easily accessible via the bus that stops just outside the hotel and travels around the island.
