Getting to Skopelos port
The main port is situated in the heart of the island's main town, which is also called Skopelos.
The second port is the port of Glossa in the North of the island. Which port you use is determined by the route you take. You booking will show you the correct port. Glossa port is called Loutraki as Loutraki and Glossa are two nearby villages.
Both ports can be reached easily by road. As the island is small, finding your way around is not difficult. In fact if you hire a car, it is unlikely that you will need more than a tank of fuel for up to a week.
Like most Greek island ports, there are few port facilities. Instead there are nearby cafes and restaurants.
The main town on Skopelos shares the island's name, and is home to the majority of Skopelos' inhabitants. The total population of Skopelos is approximately 4,700 inhabitants, making Skopelos a calm and peaceful island which is free from mass tourism.
If you are visiting Skopelos, take the time to wander around the village of Glossa, which is situated to the northwest of the island, around 25km from Skopelos town. Glossa is home to many picturesque streets and traditional Greek houses, which allow you to experience traditional Greek life in a tranquil setting.
