If you’ve ever watch Mamma Mia, you’ve most certainly wondered about the stunning Greece island backdrop present in most of the scenes. The underrated island of Skopelos is considered to be one of the greenest in the Aegean, and is full of lush forests, whitewashed traditional houses and beautiful beaches with water as clear as glass.
Less visited than Greece’s bigger islands, this green beauty is an often overlooked holiday destination. Skopelos Island is famed for its lush forests, clear blue waters and verdant vegetation, as well as quaint villages and idyllic coasts. Considered to be the greenest island in the Aegean, visitors may be surprised to find its beaches stretch to a total of over 100km, a proposition so tempting that the Hollywood version of “Mamma Mia” was filmed around Skopelos. History and culture buffs will be delighted to discover the island is dotted with numerous churches and monasteries, with some dating back to the Byzantine era. Start your exploration via a walk through Skopelos Village itself, whilst admiring the charming architecture and signature whitewashed buildings. Take a walk up to the beautiful Panayitsa of Pyrgos or the famous St. John’s church which you’ll find on top of a cliff. Skopelos Museum is also a must-visit when on the island, giving visitors a chance to learn about Greek culture and popular folk heritage.
