Staying on the island and getting around.

Hi there. Am planning to stay on Skopelos in a few weeks time.

Where can I practically stay, just Skopelos town or other villages?

Are there buses I can use?

Any tips would be gratefully received.

Skopelos town is the place to stay for the evening action. Elsewhere is too small. There is accommodation almost everywhere.

Those small places are Staphylos, Agnontas, Panormos, Neo Klima, Glossa, Loutraki.

That is also the bus route out of Skopelos town, it gets you to any of the beaches and resorts during the day, but does not run evenings.

The main tip is to stay in Skopelos town. This applies to all 4 Sporades islands.

Pity you are just leaving a room empty on Skiathos, you could have booked a flight only and done the accommodation.

Hey and welcome quellysmedlinton:-) For some general isle info take a look at www.skopelosweb.gr/ Depending on what you're looking for, there are accommodations throughout the isle.. so if looking for more of a beach vaca, you won't fall short on places to stay from simple rooms, to studios/apartments with kitchenettes.. to some hotels;-) Obviously, the main Town will offer the most in nightlife if that's what you're looking for but most of the beach areas have a selection of cafes, tavernas, mini-markets as well.. again, you can stay wherever you want.. depends on what you're looking to experience;-)

The bus route covers the coastal area passing most of the popular beaches to include Staphylos, Agnondas, Panormos, Adrina, Mylies, Kastani, Elios (Neo Klima).. there is also another run heading into Skopelos Town from Loutraki/Glossaa bypassing Agnondas and Stafylos taking a newer inland route.. that's it for the 2 routes the buses offer but it's frequent enough in Season when you'll be there in a few weeks;-) Happy planning.. and EnJOY!
