Skopelos Guide

Skopelos lies towards the east of mainland Greece and is the second-largest of the Sporades group of islands. Although it does not have too many sandy beaches, Skopelos is the perfect destination for visitors looking for a tranquil and quiet holiday. Accommodation on the island is targeted towards the upmarket tourist. It is relatively expensive when compared with that on the more commercialized nearby island of Skiathos.

Stafylos is the island's most popular beach. It is quite well-liked by families due to its proximity to Skopelos Town, which is about 4 kilometers away. From the road above the beach, there is a stupendous view over the bay. Agnondas is a charming little fishing harbour with many taverns offering excellent seafood at modest prices. The most beautiful beach on the island is Limnonari. It is a magnificent stretch of pearl-white sand with clear turquoise waters. There is a bus that runs along the main road to bring visitors to most of the major beaches of the island. Many can only be reached by walking an extra distance along a dirt road.

Skopelos Town is a lovely slope dotted by white houses with red roofs. Along the water's front is where you will find most of the fine restaurants, bars, and shops. Behind the water's front is a labyrinth of cobblestone streets that weave their way up to a 13th century Venetian Kastro. There are an endless number of monasteries and churches to visit here. The most visited of these are Zoodochos Pigi, known for its icon dedicated to St.Luke, and Chrisso, which is famous for its breathtaking interior.

Because Skopelos is quite big, it is recommended that you rent a car if you want to explore some of the more remote beaches and hidden valleys on the island. Skopelos is easily reached on a daily basis by ferry, hydrofoil, or catamaran from Volos and Agios Konstantinos on the mainland.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
