Travel and Leisure Calls Skopelos a "Best Hidden Island"


Travel and Leisure, a travel magazine based in New York, with 4.8 million readers, has recently cited Skopelos, The Sporades, as one of the world's best "hidden islands:" islands that are relatively unvisited, but which impress with their beauty and seclusion.

T and M says that Skopelos, for all its recent fame as the location for the ABBA song vehicle film "Mama Mia!" starring Meryl Streep, has not been much affected by the film and retains all of its attractive features that make it a paradise-like getaway.

It mentions the "hidden coves, blue-roofed tavernas, and hundreds of Byzantine-era churches" of Skopelos as top attractions, as well as its pristine beaches.
