Although Skopelos has no airport it is as easy as pie to travel here
seeing as the island is close to Skiathos that has international airport,
and very good boat connections with Skopelos. It's as easy to get here
independently as it is to go on a package-holiday.
BY CHARTER FLIGHTS
It is possible to go on a package-holiday from several countries,
check with your tour operator if they arrange trips to Skopelos. The plane
lands on Skiathos where you are greeted by a guide who will make sure
you come to the port and on board the boat to Skopelos.
BY INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS
Go by air to Skiathos
and continue by ferry to Skopelos. The taxis are waiting outside the
airport terminal on Skiathos, the trip to the port takes less than 5 minutes
and costs around 6 Euro. Another - definitely not as good - option is
to fly to Athens, travel on by bus to Agios Konstantinos and then
continue by catamaran to Skopelos.
BY DOMESIC FLIGHTS
The nearest domestic airport lies on Skiathos. From Skiathos
you can fly to/from Athens.
BY CATAMARAN AND FERRY
Skopelos has very good boat connections with Skiathos and Alonissos.
During the summer months, it runs up to seven boats per day to/from Skiathos
Choose between fast catamarans or regular ferries. It takes between 50-75
minutes to Skiathos depending on which boat you choose, to Alonissos it
takes between 20-40 minutes. The fast catamarans costs twice as much as
regular ferries. There are three ports on Skopelos: Agnontas,
Skopelos Town and Loutraki
(Glossa). The travelling times above apply from Skopelos Town. The port
at Agnontas is only used in bad weather, when the boats have difficulties
to call at Skopelos Town.
