It s magic. You see the views and it seems to listening to Meryl Streep singing "Winner takes it all". The best moment of the movie "Mamma Mía". A MUST SEE.

Have climbed the stairs a couple of times and for some it can be daunting...but it's worth it! A taverna and beach nearby allows you to make it a full day should you like!

We visited in December and walked from Glossa which took 2 hours each way. By 2pm the beaches were shady but the rock with the church were beautiful and we had the whole place to ourselves. A lovely quiet stroll.

Hallo, we did not have there any ceremony. We just had a look at the peninsula. My advice: look for a real cosy hotel in Skopelos with a splendid view over the bay like Thea Home Hotel which we had. It is family run: father... More
