During these months, Skopelos sparkles under the sun and the sea waters are enticing, creating a perfect recipe for beach relaxation and water adventures.

Spring and autumn (April to May and October) are also excellent times to visit Skopelos for comfortable weather and fewer crowds, perfect for exploration. However, if you prefer a quieter getaway, winter offers a unique side to the island – expect cooler temperatures, greener landscapes, and a touch of tranquillity.
