Skopelos, the greenest island in Greece
Skopelos is the greenest island in Greece. Here, the green of the pine-trees
and the dense forest mix with the deep blue of sea and sky, creating
the picture of unrivalled nature beauty.
Because the island of Skopelos is defined by lush green forest
and the blue of the sea the International Organization of Biopolitics,
on July the 5th 1997, officially proclaimed it "Green and Blue
Island". More than 50% of the island area is covered by a virgin
forest of pine-trees. A forest which, when you visit Skopelos,
will also need your love and care in order to maintain the natural
beauty and ecological balance that has survived for nearly 4000
Similarly the town of Skopelos, by presidential
decree, (19/10/1978 Presidential Decree 594,13-11/78). was honored
as a Traditional Settlement of outstanding beauty. (The Greek
equivalent of a site of Outstanding Architectural Inheritance).
