      Chora or Old Town was the islands capital until 1965 when a devastating earthquake hit the Sporades. The settlement originally positioned around 250m above sea level for reasons of defence hundereds of years ago was abandoned after the earthquake and the population moved to Patitiri which is 4km away…

      Paralia Glifa is a rustic beach made up of large pebbles and not at all "developed" though there is a small beach bar at the north end. It is just around a small headland from Steni Vala a pretty little fishing and yachting harbour with a number of traditional tavernas and restaurants.

      Early morning trek down old donkey paths from Alonissos Old Town to Mikros Mourtias and towards the lighthouse.

      Just posting in case folks visit Alonissos and want a beach recommendation.

      Leftos Gialos is a wonderfully sheltered bay with a typical smooth pebbled beach and crystal clear water. While it is an "organised" beach with sun shades/loungers and a beach bar/restaurant, it was not really busy with several…

      A wander around beautiful Skopelos town (with mapping gone a bit wrong).

      Been more than 25 years since I was here last 😲 (in back-packing/island hopping days 😎) and delighted it remains unspoiled with hardly a mention of Mama Mia anywhere (in fact there is far more mention of MM in Skiathos as tour…

      A nice hike up into the hills above Skopelos Town in 26 degree heat 😅. Rather disappointingly, Sotiros Monastery was closed (and looked like it had been for some time) and didn't have time to reach other monasteries further up the hill. Google Maps shows the interiors of these little communes which look amazing.

      Kastani and Milia beaches. Also separated by a rocky headland. Kastani is an "organised" beach with loungers and a cafe bar. Unlike most of Skopelos the beach is sandy. Milia is larger/longer, less organised and pebbly. There are a couple of lovely secluded coves lying between the two. Water is crystal clear.

      A brief stroll along these two beaches. Fairly quiet considering they are the nearest to Skopelos town. Separated by a headland, Stafilos is much more sheltered. The far end of Velanio is naturist
