Discovering Skopelos: The World’s Secret Superyacht Hotspot

By  

YachtCharterFleet

Recently named as one of the ‘Best Secret Islands on Earth’ by Travel + Leisure magazine, Skopelos has attracted the coveted attentions of the 'SuperyachtSet' for its authentic and natural charm.

Perfect for those who enjoy escaping to remote and undisturbed destinations, the floral and quaint island setting of Skopelos provides the perfect destination for a luxury yacht charter vacation.

Located in the western Aegean Sea, and belonging to the northern Sporades island chain, it’s possible that Skopelos remained a secret purely because it is surrounded by so many other similarly attractive destinations.

Or perhaps it’s because superyachts which cruise from Athens tend to head south rather than north- indeed, the Cyclades enjoy considerable popularity, with both Santorini and Mykonos being established hotspots.

It’s possible, too, that greater exposure in the media is to thank for superyachts descending on the coast of Skopelos each summer- the blockbuster hit Mamma Mia used the island as its primary setting, generating plenty of interest in the olive groves and historic streets.

Of course, the beaches are key part of the allure, with the picturesque Staphylos being easily accessible from the main town and a number of others being reached via wooded trails.

Whatever the reason, there’s never been a better time to book a charter to learn what all the well-earned hype is all about.

With fantastic beaches, fine food, and turquoise waters, Skopelos is the perfect destination for a summertime yacht charter vacation

Time To Get Away

For anyone harbouring the desire to escape to a secluded island- whether to party the night away or swap the bustle of everyday life for the quiet of a white sand beach- Skopelos is certain to satisfy.

In particular, the main town of Glysteri is lined with waterside taverns to keep the drinks flowing whilst the pebble beach a short distance away is ideal for taking in sunset after sunset in undisturbed tranquility.

For those looking to fill their days with something a little more adventurous, the surrounding waters are suitable for a range of watersports as well some underwater exploration for divers of varying abilities.

The Perfect Greek Island?

Such a range of attractions on a relatively small island led one Telegraph journalist to ask if ‘Skopelos is the perfect Greek island’.

His conclusion, as you might expect, was that Skopelos was indeed the perfect Greek island, bringing together all of the things for which Greece is celebrated, and then some.

From the superb food to the postcard-perfect beaches, charter guests can be assured of enjoying a memorable time in a destination which is only going to become more and more popular in the Mediterranean.
