Skopelos Yacht Charters

Located in the North Sporades group of islands is Skopelos, with its three ports of Skopelos, Agnontas, and Glossa.

The capital city of the island is Hora, which is located on the northern coast. Originally, it was named Peparithos after the son of the Greek god Dionysos and Ariadne, and the city sits on a hill that is topped by a medieval castle. The views from the castle are breathtaking, and offer vistas of the blue waters of the Aegean, narrow streets lined with stone houses and beautiful courtyards, as well as a number of Byzantine churches. The Folklore Museum in Hora offers a rich collection of historic exhibits and is housed in a renovated mansion.

The second biggest settlement on the island is Glossa, known as “the tall village.” It’s distinctive personality is marked by the ruins of ancient towers and other buildings as well as the noble character of the present-day town. Nearby is the village of Palio Klima, which suffered damage during an earthquake in 1965. Neo Klima, or Elios, is a new settlement which was founded in 1981 and is located near the beach of Hovolos.
