While the usual tourist areas in Skopelos are great to see, why not travel a little further out and explore some cool new sights with a rental car via Travelocity?
If your flight lands at Skiathos Island National Airport, you can just about rent a car right next to the runway. Europcar is a nearby outlet here. Budget is also worth considering.
Rent a car in the town center and you'll be navigating the busy streets like a local in a flash. A go-to outlet here is Enterprise at Paralia Skopelou Limni Potoki.
Few things are more relaxing than the murmur of ocean waves coming into shore. Roll out a picnic rug, stretch out and let the soothing melodies wash over you at Stafylos Beach. Seeking some more ideas? Grab some cheese, crackers and a bottle of wine and spend an afternoon at Valanio Beach. It's one of the most picturesque places in the surrounding region for a relaxing picnic. But there's more. Quit flicking through those photo apps and consider the real-life works at Museum of Photography instead. Showcasing an array of thought-provoking and creative images, it's a terrific place to get your fix of photography.
