Skiathos to Skopelos Ferry & Transport Guide for 2023
Getting from Skiathos to Skopelos is very easy. Ferries depart from Skiathos port daily throughout the year, with an average of 5-6 services per day during the peak summer months.
Even during the winter, you will find that a ferry runs between the two islands every day. So whatever time of year you happen to travel, you will never struggle to find a connection.
There is no airport on Skopelos island. (The closest airport is on Skiathos island or on the mainland in Volos and Thessaloniki). The only way to get here from Skiathos is by sea.
Skiathos to Skopelos
The journey from Skiathos to Skopelos is simple and pleasant. You can get from one island to another in less than 90 minutes.
(The exact journey time varies slightly depending on whether you are taking a “flying dolphin” high-speed hydrofoil boat, or you are taking a slower car ferry.) Hellenic Seaways, Anes Ferries, SeaJets. and Flying Dolphins are the ferry operators that service this route.
The ferry route starts in Volos on the mainland and then continues onwards to Skiathos, Skopelos, and finally, Alonissos . From Skiathos, you can actually choose to take the ferry to Glossa port, in the north of Skopelos, or Skopelos town port, in the south.
If you are travelling from Skiathos to Skopelos just for the day, with the intention of visiting the famous Mamma Mia church (Agios Ioannis Kastri) , you should travel to Glossa. If you are spending several days exploring Skopelos island , the main port at Skopelos town is perhaps your best option.
Skopelos town is arguably the best base for a trip to Skopelos. Being here means you are just a short drive or bus ride away from some of the best Skopelos beaches , and you have a plethora of excellent Skopelos restaurants , bars, and cafes right on your doorstep.
Skiathos to Skopelos Ferry Services
Hellenic Seaways and Anes Ferries are the two main companies that operate the boats from Skiathos to Skopelos. Schedules vary depending on the season.
However, between May and September, there are as many as 6-7 departures per day. You can check the latest schedules via Ferryscanner.
However, as of yet, the spring/summer 2023 schedule is not published online. The first service departs at 10.40 am and the last one is usually between 18.00 and 19.00 pm.
When you check the ferry schedules online, you can also see information on which ferry provider each journey is with, and how long it takes. It is usually worth booking the higher-speed flying dolphin ferry to cut down on travel time.
Boats that run from Skiathos to Skopelos
The flying dolphin hydrofoil operated by Hellenic Seaways is the faster of the two options. It gets you from Skiathos to Skopelos in just 30 minutes and travels at speeds of up to 33.5 knots.
The boat operated by Anes Ferries is a larger car ferry. This gets you from Skiathos to Skopelos in an hour and fifteen minutes.
If you are particularly prone to seasickness, you may prefer to travel by a slower boat. However, the journey by flying dolphin is not excessively fast/choppy.
The Anes ferry has two small coffee bars on board serving an array of drinks, snacks, and refreshments. Prices vary from €8 to €18.50 per person depending on the specific route and provider.
Purchasing ferry tickets
You are usually fine to buy your Skiathos to Skopelos ferry ticket on your intended day of travel. The ferries rarely (if ever) sell out.
Skopelos doesn’t see the same amount of crowds as more popular Greek islands such as Santorini, Mykonos, etc, and even in the peak summer months of July and August, it is never chaotic. Still, if you can, you might want to buy your tickets online in advance via Ferryscanner for your own peace of mind.
Tickets purchased online are available in electronic format which you can display on your phone. Alternatively, you can buy them at the Skiathos port ticket office.
You can check the latest routes and prices via Ferryscanner . Since Skiathos port is relatively small and perpetually crowded, it is a good idea to arrive here 30 minutes before your boat is due to depart, or an hour before if you also need to purchase a ferry ticket.
Arriving at Agnontas port in Skopelos
It is worth noting that although most ferries to Skopelos only stop at Glossa and Skopelos ports, they will sometimes stop at Agnontas instead of the town port if the weather is bad. If it is an especially stormy or windy day and your ferry stops at Agnontas, the ferry company will provide a complimentary bus service to get you to your final destination.
Getting to Skiathos Port
It is easy to get to Skiathos port for your ferry to Skopelos, wherever you are on the island. A cab from one side of Skiathos to another is not likely to cost more than €20.
The Skiathos bus is also an extremely convenient way to get around the island. If you are heading directly from Skiathos airport to the ferry port, your best option is to take a taxi.
Skiathos airport is conveniently located just five minutes away (1.2 miles) from the port area.
Skiathos’ “Alexandros Papadiamantis” airport is very small and consists of only one terminal for both domestic and international flights.
There are usually cabs waiting outside the airport. However, you should keep in mind that during July and August, it can be very busy and you may have to wait for a little. To avoid this, you might want to consider pre-booking a cab or an airport transfer.
The number for the Skiathos Taxi Federation is (+30) 2427024461. Most cab drivers/telephone operators speak English so it’s easy to organise a cab upon arrival if you don’t find one outside.
If you are staying overnight in Skiathos before heading on to Skopelos island , your hotel may offer a shuttle service. Check with them in advance of boarding your flight. There is currently no public bus that operates on the route from Skiathos airport to the port.
Take a Cab or Organise a Transfer
The best way to get from Skiathos airport to the port is to take a taxi.
Skiathos to Skopelos Tours
Numerous reputable local tour companies offer excursions to Skopelos. This can be a great way to see the island if your Greece itinerary doesn’t give you the time to stay overnight.
It also takes a lot of the hassle out of managing the logistics of your trip and having to worry about how to get from A to B. Many tours include pickup and drop-off from your hotel/accommodation in Skiathos.
Most Skopelos day tours focus on the island’s Mamma Mia filming locations. However, even if you haven’t seen the movie or you are not a fan, these gorgeous churches, secluded beaches, and little towns are still wonderful stopping points.

Skiathos to Skopelos private water taxis
It is possible to organise a private water taxi from Skiathos to Skopelos if there are between one and five of you travelling together. However, this is of course the most expensive travel option.
Skiathos water taxis give you slightly more flexibility (as well as comfort and convenience) as you have the option to sail into any village/port in Skopelos, as opposed to just Glossa and Skopelos town as per the commercial ferry/flying dolphin route.

FAQs about Skiathos to Skopelos Ferries & Transport
Do you have any additional questions or concerns about making the journey from Skiathos to Skopelos? Hopefully, you will find the answers you are looking for below.
How long is the ferry from Skiathos to Skopelos?
The travel time between Skiathos to Skopelos varies depending on what specific boat you are travelling on and which port you are disembarking at. If you are taking the flying dolphin, you can expect to arrive at Glossa in 15 minutes, and at Skopelos port in 30 minutes.

Which is better? Skiathos or Skopelos?
Skiathos and Skopelos are both wonderful travel destinations in their own right, it all depends on what you are looking for. However, Skiathos has always been the most popular of the two islands.
Skiathos boasts a lot of dining and nightlife options, while Skopelos is quieter and more secluded. That being said, some parts of Skiathos can get very crowded during the summer months, which can detract from the experience somewhat.
If you are wanting to travel to a Greek island where you can effortlessly meet other people, have all of your home comforts, and constantly find a party, head to Skiathos. If you prefer walks in nature and secluded coves, head to Skopelos.
Can you do a day trip from Skiathos to Skopelos?
You can easily do a day trip from Skiathos to Skopelos as the two islands are located right next to each other. If you check the ferry times, you can do this independently by getting one of the earlier ferries in the morning and then coming back in the evening.
However, several local tour companies also offer day trips to Skopelos and this may be easier. They will transport you all around the gorgeous blue-green island and help you to make the most of your time.
How do I get from Skiathos airport to Skopelos ferry?
To get from Skiathos airport to the Skopelos ferry, your best option is to take a taxi from the airport to Skiathos ferry port. This journey only takes around 5 minutes. From there, you can board a ferry to Skopelos.
How often does the ferry run from Skiathos to Skopelos?
Tourism in the Sporades is very seasonal and so, the ferry schedules from Skiathos to Skopelos vary significantly throughout the year. Between May and September, there are as many as 6 departures per day. During winter in Greece , there are only 1-2.

Votre exposé est très intéressant.Mais depuis cette année 2021, la compagnie Seajet opère depuis Thessalonique, a Mantoudi en passant par skopelos et Alonissos
good day ! going from Skhiatos to Loutraki one way on may 8th 2022,when looking for a shuttle only skopelos appearing …different distance but same fare ? what’s ferry company operates at that date ? thanks
Hey Alain, you can check Ferryscanner here to see the latest ferry routes/schedules. Most ferries stop at both Loutraki/Glossa and Skopelos town.
I checked the schedule for your ferry and it seems that the best choice for you is to board at 10.40am and disembark at Glossa/Loutraki.
Hi Melissa My teen daughter and I are flying into Skiathos in may 2022 and getting ferry to skopelos but was wondering if you have an recommendation for place to stay in Skiathos close to the port for access to ferry ?
We’re hoping to visit skiathos in July this year from the UK. We’re originally hoping to do 2 weeks and island hop betwee. Skiathos-skopelos-alonossos but would both be unvaccinated so wondered if covid testing would be required for every ferry trip?
Would you recommend island hoping and if so how long at each place?
Finally what are restrictions currently like on the islands related to covid?
As we don’t want to travel and not be able to do anything as unvaccinated
Hi there, We are a family of four and will be staying in Skopelos in July/August for 10 days. Do you reccommend we take a hire car on the ferry from Skiathos or should we travel as passengers and hire in Skopelos instead?

Skiathos to Skopelos Ferry Guide – Schedules, Tickets, and Information
There are 4 or 5 ferries per day sailing from Skiathos to Skopelos in the summer, and the trip takes about an hour. Here you can find out more about the Skiathos Skopelos ferry ride, where to buy tickets, and other useful travel information.
Situated between Skiathos and Alonissos in the Greek Sporades islands group, Skopelos is a lush green island with fantastic beaches.
Large scale package tourism still hasn't taken root on Skopelos thankfully, but as with almost every Greek island, August is the busiest time of year. Visit Skopelos in July or September if you want the best combination of warm weather and fewer tourists.
As Skopelos doesn't have an airport, you'll need to take a ferry to get there.
How to get from Skiathos to Skopelos
During the high season, it's very easy to take a ferry from Skiathos to Skopelos thanks to the regular services offered by ferry operators Hellenic Seaways, Anes Ferries, Aegean Flying Dolphins, and SeaJets.
The travel time between Skiathos and Skopelos in Greece ranges from half an hour to an hour and a half depending on which ferry you use, and which port you arrive at in Skopelos.
Which reminds me – Skopelos has two ferry ports you can arrive – Chora (Skopelos Town) and Glossa. Most people who want to stay in Skopelos will want to arrive at Skopelos Town as this is the best place to be based overall.
However, if you want to take a day trip from Skiathos to Skopelos to see the Mamma Mia church , you'll be better off taking a ferry from Skiathos to Glossa port.
Make sure you choose the right ferry port in Skopelos when booking accommodation etc! Take a look at the map here to see what I mean.
The quickest ferry crossing is between Skiathos and Glossa port, while the longest crossing is the one from Skiathos to Skopelos town port. The Skiathos to Skopelos town crossing is the most popular one.
The simplest place to look at schedules for Greek ferries, and to book a ferry ticket online is at the Ferryscanner website.
Getting To Skiathos Ferry Port
All ferries from Skiathos depart from the main port in Skiathos town. The Skiathos ferry port is located on the waterfront in the main town.
If you've arrived by plane to Skiathos airport, the best way to get to the ferry port is to take a taxi.
During the peak season there may be a queue for Skiathos airport taxis, so factor that into your travel itinerary and plans. If you have plenty of time between when your flight lands and your ferry departs Skiathos, then you can take a bus to the ferry port instead.
If you're staying in Skiathos town, you'll probably find it just as easy to walk to the port. Luggage with wheels is a good idea!
Passengers who already have a ticket are advised to be at Skiathos ferry port at least a half hour before departure.
Greek ferries rarely completely sell out, but these things do happen! I recommend that you book your ferry tickets in advance with Ferryscanner .
If you want to be more flexible, you could leave it until you get to Skiathos port and buy them there – I find this all a bit stressful though!
Ferry Companies Sailing Skiathos Skopelos Route
During the peak months of summer, you may expect between 5 and 7 ferries a day to sail between the Sporades islands of Skiathos and Skopelos.
Ferries start leaving at 10.00 in the morning, and the last ferry departs Skiathos at 16.10 for Skopelos Chora (Skopelos Town). Glossa ferries sometimes run until as late as 22.00
Ferry ticket prices are quite reasonable on this ferry route – somewhere between 8.00 and 18.50 Euros. A car will cost more of course.
Ferry crossings from Skiathos to Skopelos are operated by the following companies:
You might also find that people refer to this as the Blue Star Ferries ship (they are all part of the same Attica Ferries company). The ship is normally the Express Skiathos ans stops at both Glossa and Skopelos Town ferry ports.
The Sporades Star sails the route Skiathos to Skopelos, but only goes to Skeoplos Town and not Glossa.
The Proteus ship operated by Anes ferries is pretty old, and connects the Sporades islands along with Evia (Mantoudi). It's a conventional ferry which takes over 100 vehicles along with over 300 passengers. It's likely to be the slowest ferry on the Skiathos Skopelos route, but might be the cheapest.
Aegean Flying Dolphins
This is a high speed ferry that only takes passengers and not vehicles. With a trip duration of 55 minutes it's the fastest ferry from Skiathos to Skopelos and looks a lot of fun. You wouldn't catch me on this ferry on a windy day though!
Get ferry tickets and check timetables at: Ferryscanner
If you plan to fly into Skiathos and then head straight out to Skopelos but can't find a suitable ferry, there is another option, and this is to take a water taxi.
SeaCab is the water-taxi option and is a bit more expensive but also faster and more direct. They have set prices for Glossa, but if you want to go from Skiathos to Skopelos town on a SeaCab you can expect to pay over 125 Euros.
The extra cost is probably reasonable all things considered if it's taking you to Skopelos Town (which is the other side of the island and further away) but obviously more expensive than a regular ferry would be.
Skopelos Island Travel Tips
A few travel tips for visiting Skopelos island:
- All ferries from Skiathos depart Skiathos Port. Ferries arrive in Skopelos at either Glossa or Chora.
- Skopelos Town is a good area to stay, but there is accommodation all over the island. I've a guide here on where to stay in Skopelos .
- For some quality beach time, head to these beaches in Skopelos: Kastani Beach, Agnontas Beach , Milia Beach, Stafylos Beach, Velanio Beach, Adrina Beaches, and Panormos Beach. You'll also want to visit the famous Mamma Mia church in Skopelos as well!
- If you are planning a day trip from Skiathos to Skopelos to see the Mamma Mia church, you'll want to arrive at Glossa port. There are taxis there which will take you out to the church. Expect a round trip to cost in the region of 50 Euros. Arrange with the driver to drop you off and then come back to collect you a couple of hours later. There's a nice beach near the church you can relax at and have a swim after seeing the chapel.
- One of the best places to look at ferry schedules and to book tickets online is at Ferryscanner . I recommend you book your Skiathos to Skopelos ferry tickets in advance, especially during the busy summer months.

Hi Dave Do the ferries run from Skiathos to Skopelos in March and April? I’ve provisionally booked an apartment in Skopelos for the end of March/beginning of April 2024. Thanks
Yes the Skiathos ferry to Skopelos runs every day of the week all through the year. There might only be 2 Skiathos – Skopelos ferries in March and April though.
Dave Good morning. We normally holiday in Menorca but are planning our summer 2024 holiday and have decided on a hotel in Skopelos town. At the moment the TUI flight on 16/08/2024 lands in Skiathos at 13.20 hours and the return flight on 30/08/2024 departs at 14.20 hours. Would these arrival departure times be compatible with ferry sailing times, which ferry company would you recommend and how much would a Water Taxi for four people cost?
Hi Gary, Unfortunately there’s no way to tell what the ferry schedules will be like for next year, although i would suspect it would be virtually the same as this year. The water taxi as an emergency option to get from Skiathos to Skopelos would be an option. More info here: Seacab
hi, I wonder if you can tell me if the timetables for Skiathos to Skopelos are now (18 Feb) the final ones or if more crossings will be added for May 2023. Our holiday in Skopelos town is 19-26 May and currently the flights arrive (12.40) after the last ferry and then depart (13.40) before the first ferry gets in to Skiathos.
I’m struggling to find out if the current schedules for May are the final ones. Hope you can help.
Hi Maria, I don’t think that the complete ferry services are live yet. I don’t see any Aegean Speedlines or Blue Star yet which is highly unusual. Last year, there were afternoon crossings from Skiathos to Skopelos – Looks like there were morning ones as well. I have a feeling more will be added after Greek Easter to the schedule. One backup plan is to use the water taxi (expensive, could be fun) Site here in case you need a backup plan: Water Taxis
Thanks for that Dave. I have been keeping an eye on the ferry timetables and see there are still none for my timings. Wondering how long I can leave it … Aegean Speediness still have nothing listed at all.

Hi all does anyone know if any of the boat trips just go to skopelos town for the day or half day trip.
For excursion boats look along the harbour the previous evening and see where they go. As far as I recall nothing would do just Skopelos town.
Cheapest and easiest is to take the ferry to/from Skopelos town, look in the agency by the port. Times going and back vary a bit weekends/weekdays/season. Return fares are just double the one way price, conventional ferries cheaper.
Am I right in thinking the local ferries are all enclosed? i.e. an open air tourist boat might be slower but a far nicer journey?
I don't think they are. A couple of years ago we got the ferry to Glossa and back to Skiathos from Skopelos Town.
We sat outside and the trip both ways was very nice.
The Flyingcat 5 is a totally enclosed catamaran. The view is poor through salt encrusted windows.
However the ones to look for are the 'Express Skiathos', 'Proteus', 'Express Pegasus'. Conventional ferries with open decks, and cheaper. If it calls into Glossa(Loutraki) as well then they usually go round the north tip and down the NE coast to Skopelos town.
That's why I referenced that website because you can tell easily the ferry name and calls into Glossa(Loutraki), and indeed press the icon for the return journey.
You would probably need to take one of those ferries one way and the other coming back. They are mainland ferries so you have to make creative use.

Amazing Day Trips to Take Around Skiathos by Boat
Feel like you’re the star of your own show on the Greek island of Skiathos , best known for being one of the filming locations featured in the hit Hollywood musical Mamma Mia. Movie fame aside, the island has more than 60 gorgeously rugged beaches backed by steep white cliffs and thick pine forests as well as plenty of rickety tavernas and cosy bars in sleepy seafront villages. To see some of the island’s best-kept secrets, it’s best to hire a boat. Here we reveal some of the best sailing trips to embark upon around this special island.

This knock-out of a beach is only reachable by boat from the port at Skiathos town and sits on the northeastern tip of the island. Expect wide sugary sand framed by soaring white cliffs. What makes this spot really unique is the natural rock bridge which spans the sand and arches over the crystal clear sea. The magnificent “blue” and “black” caves are located just before Lalaria and are definitely worth a visit. Be warned, there’s not a hint of a beach bar along this strip so take refreshments ashore.
This calm beach sits on a stretch of unspoilt coastline close to undulating hills carpeting the Koukounaries ecological park on the west coast of the island. It’s roughly 15km (9mi) west of Skiathos Town. The golden sands are superbly soft and the waters clear. There are no watersport rentals on the beach but there is a shack-like taverna where you can stack up on snacks and drinks. As the beach is sheltered by pine trees and off the beaten track, it attracts the odd nudist.

This is the best-known beach in Skiathos but this stretch of sand never gets overcrowded even in the summer months. Sail into the bay and alight with fragrant pine trees scenting the air and sands as soft as talc underfoot. Thanks to its paradisiacal appearance, Koukounaries has been voted the most unspoiled natural beach of the Mediterranean. Despite its untouched guise, the beach has good amenities with restaurants and small hotels peppering the shoreline. There are also watersports on offer, a beach bar and sun loungers for rent.
Stand beneath the clock tower in Skiathos town and you’ll get a clear view of Tsougria Island. It’s only a short ride over to this outcrop with the boat ride costing around €10 if you don’t have your own vessel and cruises regularly stop there. When you arrive, bask on one of four sandy beaches or hike up the island’s rocky ridge where you’ll be rewarded by panoramic views of Skiathos and nearby Skopelos. Tsougria is uninhabited but during summer a slickly-styled beach bar opens on the northwest coast.
The easiest way to access this 14th-century abandoned castle on the northern tip of Skiathos is by boat from the town. From there it’s a strenuous hike upwards. The castle was restored after Greek independence from the Ottomans in the 1830s and has moved location more than once to avoid raids by pirates. The gate and drawbridge give this fortress a fairytale feel, while a mosque and three churches are other attractions that sit on the site. The largest church, Agios Nikolaos, is open to the public.
You may recognise the island of Skopelos as a Mamma Mia filming location. If you think Skiathos is green, wait until you see this place. Set to the east of Skiathos, and accessible by boat in around 80 minutes, more than half of the island is covered by virgin pine forest. Olive and almond trees also grow here, while honey is another local product. If you venture into the main town you’ll find a mix of charming tavernas and bars. Or if it’s a spot of relaxation you’re after, the island’s 70km (43mi) of coastline offers tree-lined shingle and sandy beaches including Kastani beach which also served as a Mamma Mia backdrop.
Eat and drink Skopelos
Wander through the narrow cobbled streets of Skopelos town to Rodi, an elegant courtyard restaurant festooned with orange trees and wildflowers. The menu features classic Mediterranean dishes with a twist. Meaty highlights include spiced lamb tagine and pork chops with citrus sauce and caramelised apples. The local cheeses are another must-try and all of the dishes are flavoured with herbs and greens picked from the kitchen garden. After dinner head to Mercurius for a fill of the best cocktails on the island.
With a fine collection of golden beaches, evergreen pine forests and olive groves, this idyllic location is well worth marking on your Skiathos sailing itinerary. The best thing is the Punta peninsula is only a few minutes from Skiathos Town and very close to the airport. Drop anchor at the gorgeous windswept Lazareta beach for a lazy day of sunbathing and swimming with Greek snacks back on board to keep your energy levels up.
The lively main street in Skiathos old town is the perfect place to let your hair down after a day at sea. Before you decide on where to have dinner, stock up on local delicacies and products to take home from the upmarket Ergon deli which also has outposts in Athens, Thessaloniki and Mayfair, London. Nicos is a limoncello-hued taverna popular with locals and serves delicious grilled seafood. Meanwhile, the best spot for sunset cocktails and a view over the harbour and Aegean sea is The Windmill.

Hi, I am planning on visiting the islands early September next year but can't decide weather to stay on Skopelos or Skiathos!
Am thinking of staying on Skiathos and going on a day trip over to Skopelos, but how easy is this to do and would it be enough time to see much over there? I really want to see some of the mamma mia film locations! Any advice appreciated : )
Go to Skiathos as there is much more to do there however don't get me wrong Skopelos is lovely but a lot quieter. It's very easy to get across to Skopelos either via ferry or trips. Skiathos really has got something for everyone it was one of my best holidays, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
Why decide at all, just go and stay on Skopelos for a few days, it's as easy as that. There are plentiful regular ferries/hydofoils/catamarans every day, dead easy.
Assuming you have say 14 nights just book say 4 nights on Skopelos and 10 nights on Skiathos.
I don't do packages but I'm sure there is someone that will one week on each.
One day is just not enough time to see Skopelos or Alonissos, other than a 'been there, done that scenario'.
I have just returned from skiathos and although the town is fab, i was very dissapointed with the beaches.
If you can split your time between the 2, it would be ideal...Skopelos is about 3 times the size of Skiathos so definetely not do-able (properly) in a day trip over..Skopelos has 2 entry ports..the one closest to Skiathos (Glossa) is about a 15 min ride..doesn't get closer (or easier)..some beautiful beaches to be had for sure! From Skopelos Town, the ferry over to Alonissos is again 15 min..another wonderful isle worth visiting:-) The Sporades are super close to each other so getting from one to another won't pose any problems..once you've planted yourself, moving will be the hard part:-) EnjoY!
It all depends on what kind of vacation you want. I went to both this year and thought Skopelos was, by far, the most amazing of the two. Skiathos seems a little more tourist oriented and, although the beaches are beautiful, I found the overall beauty of Skopelos much more pleasurable and varried. The locals, in my experience, were very kind and welcoming. I would recomend staying in skopelos town as there are some options for late night. Sure, Skiathos has all the night clubs but if your looking for a true greek island experience versus a "tourist destination" vacation, stay for a majority of your time in skopelos!
I'd recommend Skopelos but then I would say that as I live here!
It really depends on what type of holiday you want and what type of person you are! Personally I'm not that keen on Skiathos as it's a bit too touristy for me. Skopelos has a more laid back feel (unless you come in August when all the Greek and Italian holidaymakers are here!). As for seeing the Mamma Mia locations, you really need more than a day on Skopelos to be able to get around to them.
If you do want to do both islands you can do it as part of a package but you have to usually do a week on both if you do a package. Manos do it and Olympic I think and I would have thought Thomson do it too. I preferred Skopelos myself as it wasn't as crowded and more unspoilt.
For me it would definitely be Skopelos every time. I really enjoy going on holiday and getting it away from it all and that includes getting away from british/irish pubs/ full english. In skopelos it is very greek and you don't see any english breakfast/ Chelsea v Man Utd / Greek Nights. When you arrive in Skiathos walk around and you will see all of the above within a few minutes.
I know some people enjoy a few home comforts when away so if thats what you want stick with Skiathos.
Thanks everyone, very helpful. I don't want nightclubs or loads of brits, but like somewhere that does have a choice of restraunts to eat at in the evenings. Skopelos does sound more beautiful but does it have many sandy beaches?

What is a boutique cruise
A boutique cruise is a unique sailing experience that will take you to places you never imagine on a comfortable home-like ship. Boutique cruises take place on small and medium vessels and therefore accommodate only a small limited number of travelers. Therefore, the atmosphere on board is relaxed and the service is exceptional. A boutique cruise ensures a direct connection to nature and maximum proximity to the sea.
History Of Skopelos
This green island, with its tree-studded beaches and secluded bays, may be where Mamma Mia was filmed, but it hasn’t let fame go to its head....
Village Of Skopelos
Here your holidays will be painted green and blue. About 80% of Skopelos is covered in dense, luxuriant forest..

However, please note that these times are approximate and can vary based on factors such as weather conditions and transportation schedules.
No, there are no direct flights from Skopelos to Santorini due to the lack of an airport on Skopelos Island.

It is recommended to plan your travel itinerary accordingly and allow sufficient time for transfers between the different modes of transportation.
Once you reach Skiathos Airport from Skopelos, you can choose from several transportation options to reach Santorini.

It is highly recommended to book flights and transportation in advance, especially during the peak travel season, to secure the best fares and availability. Skopelos and Santorini are popular tourist destinations, and transportation options can fill up quickly, particularly during the summer months.

It is advisable to check with the airline directly or refer to their website for the most up-to-date information on baggage policies. It is important to comply with these restrictions to avoid any additional fees or inconvenience during your journey.
As both Skopelos and Santorini are part of Greece, if you are a citizen of a country that requires a visa to enter Greece, you will need to ensure that you have the appropriate visa before traveling. The visa requirements can vary depending on your nationality and the duration of your stay in Greece. It is advisable to check with the Greek Embassy or Consulate in your home country to determine the specific visa requirements and procedures. It is important to handle all necessary visa arrangements well in advance of your intended travel dates.
Yes, it is possible to book a one-way flight from Skiathos to Santorini. Many airlines offer both one-way and round-trip flight options between these destinations. Whether you are planning a one-way journey or considering a round-trip ticket, it is advisable to compare prices and check for any special offers or promotions that may be available. Booking a one-way flight can provide more flexibility if you have separate travel plans or if you are exploring multiple destinations in Greece.

‘I was overeating’: the Zoe nutrition app founders on diet, raising millions and the perfect microbiome
The geneticist, tech specialist and engineer who set up the company aim to improve the health of millions – and maybe one day even make a profit
Tim Spector, professor of genetics and co-founder of the Zoe personal nutrition company, is recovering from a mild illness when the Observer meets him and the firm’s other founders.
“People expect Tim to have the immune system of perfection,” jokes co-founder and chief executive Jonathan Wolf, “but even he, with his almost perfect microbiome, occasionally gets sick.”
Since its launch in April 2022, more than 130,000 people have signed up to Zoe’s personalised nutrition programme, which aims to improve gut and metabolic health. Spector is a familiar figure on TV and radio, and through his books The Diet Myth and Spoon-Fed .
Zoe customers can be spotted by the circular yellow arm patch that means they are wearing a blood sugar sensor. Carrie Johnson, wife of former prime minister Boris Johnson, recently revealed on Instagram that she had signed up. Television presenter Davina McCall is one of its biggest advocates.
Zoe (“life” in Greek), gives personalised advice via an app on what users should eat, based on the results of gut health and blood fat tests and 14 days of blood sugar monitoring, all done at home and sent off to a lab.
Spector does not believe in miracle diets . But he has faith in the microbiome – the trillions of bacteria, viruses and fungi living in our gut – which as well as digesting food also play a vital role in regulating our immune system and our brain chemistry. “We’ve now realised that food is the most important choice individuals can make for their health,” he says.
Born in north London, he trained as a doctor, then became professor of genetic epidemiology at King’s College London . In 1992, he set up a registry of 15,000 adult twins at St Thomas’ hospital in London, and his TwinsUK and Predict studies have shown that even genetically identical people respond to foods very differently.
He had his first eureka moment in 2012 during the twin study when he looked for factors that would explain why some had different diseases. “It was only when I tested the microbiome, that was the first thing I’ve ever found that was radically different between identical twins.”
He had another “aha” moment on a skiing trip , after suffering a mini-stroke that left him unwell for three months. He reassessed what he knew about healthy eating.
“I was moving away from being an epidemiologist, studying populations, to wanting to give individuals precise advice. And that first individual was me.”
Spector discovered that his high-carb breakfast of muesli with low-fat milk and orange juice was “super unhealthy for me: it left me drained, tired and probably made me hungrier. So I was overeating, which meant I slowly gained a kilo a year.”
These days, he does not eat until 11am, when he has kefir and full-fat yoghurt with berries, nuts and seeds, with a plant-based meal such as curry for lunch.
Wolf studied physics at Oxford and spent 20 years working for tech companies. He gained experience in artificial intelligence in his previous job as chief product officer at Criteo, one of Europe’s biggest tech firms. He says he overcame food intolerances by ditching highly processed carbs and switching to a plant- and fibre-rich diet. “At breakfast, I’m hungry, so yoghurt and nuts is not enough. I still have some bread, but I have rye bread and I often have avocado as well.”
The third co-founder, and Zoe president, is George Hadjigeorgiou, an engineer from Greece. He set up the largest online food takeaway company in Greece, e-food.gr, which was sold to Germany’s Delivery Hero in 2015. He had high cholesterol but cut it by 40% by switching to berries, nuts and seeds, fish, pulses and extra virgin olive oil that he brings from Crete every year.
He and Wolf had worked together at Yahoo. After hearing a public talk by Spector about the twins study, they decided to put together a personalised nutrition business pitch.
“I said we really needed to do a big science project to prove this,” recounts Spector. “And you guys are gonna go and raise several million for this to happen. I really wasn’t sure whether I’d see them again.”
But they raised €7m of seed money and Zoe was born in 2017. Then came Covid. The trio decided to pause the project in March 2020 and launched a Covid symptom tracker app, which went on to have more than 4 million users .
“It really proved that if you could get millions of people to participate in science at home, you can do better science than has ever been done in laboratories,” says Wolf.
Spector’s five top nutrition tips include eating a plant-rich diet, fasting overnight and reducing ultra-processed foods – from 60% in the UK to close to the 15% in Mediterranean countries.
A decade ago, his son Tom, then a student at Aberystwyth University, volunteered, as an experiment, to eat just McDonald’s food for 10 days . Tom reported feeling good for three days, but then became lethargic and unwell. While he didn’t gain weight, Spector says, “what was really worrying was that he lost about 30% of his microbial species, and even now, his microbiome is below average”.
Zoe has identified almost 5,000 never-before-seen gut bacteria. Of those, 100 were strongly associated with health across all 35,000 participants – 50 good and 50 bad. This feeds into the app and members’ personalised scores will be updated over time.
Some doctors have reportedly said that personalised nutrition apps can cause healthy people unnecessary worry. Zoe says it “delivers evidence-based advice and a clinically validated personalised nutrition programme designed to improve health”.
The company will this week release the results of its recent Method study , showing that people who followed Zoe’s personalised programme for 18 weeks saw improvements compared with a group receiving standard dietary advice. The Zoe group lost weight and had healthier body composition , improved blood fats and a better gut microbiome.
Critics had said earlier that the trial was flawed because people knew which group they were in. Among those critics are Deborah Cohen, former Newsnight health editor, and Margaret McCartney, a GP and writer, who wrote on UnHerd : “Zoe is only one of hundreds of apps that measure our biometrics in this age of the quantified self. But … are these promises of personalised advice based on sound medicine?”
A recent surge in demand means new Zoe users have to wait several weeks for their testing kit. It has so far attracted $101m in investment from several venture capital firms, Dragons’ Den’s Steven Bartlett, and NFL champions Eli Manning and Ositadimma “Osi” Umenyiora.
Results filed with Companies House show Zoe made a pre-tax loss of £10.5m in the year to the end of August 2022, up from £7.9m the year before, despite a jump in revenue to £5.9m from £1.8m, as distribution and salesforce costs also surged.
Joining the programme is not cheap: a starter kit costs £299.99 and membership starts at £24.99 a month. The company says the price will come down as lab testing gets cheaper, and in the meantime it provides free health advice through podcasts. It also hopes to work with the NHS in future and says its member database is anonymised. And data is also not shared with health insurers.
“We know from our Covid discussions how painful it is to get anything agreed in the NHS, but the three of us would love the NHS to adopt the Zoe programmes in some form or another,” Spector says.
