SPRING: A perfect time to visit Skopelos, bringing warm sunny days and a profusion of flowers. The island seems to be awakening from its winter hibernation and new life flourishes with baby lambs, goats and kittens. The scent of wild flowers and bird song fills the air. Shutters are painted; chairs appear as if from nowhere to line the waterfront and the steady trickle of tourists begin to arrive. Houses are whitewashed and sparkling and new flowers are potted for the stairways and windowsills. The Mulberry trees along the waterfront, particular to Skopelos and a gift from the mainland of Pelion, are pruned in the Winter and begin to bloom in the Spring. With this initial sight, Spring has truly started.

SUMMER: The 40 days between the 15th of July and the 30th of August are considered the “season” in Skopelos. Unlike many southern islands with their longer summers, these days are considered crucial for island businesses. These 40 days can make or break an entire season. The time of year is perfect for lazing on the beaches and taking a dip in the clear blue seas. The weather can be warm and humid. August is the month for the strong Meltemi winds from the north keeping the temperatures bearable, but disturbing fishing boats and even ferry and flying dolphin timetables occasionally.

AUTUMN: As the days grow shorter and the clocks turn back, the season begins to wind slowly down. The stream of tourists begins to slow and, one by one, the shops and tavernas begin to close, with all but the year round businesses being closed by the 15th of October. Now a new kind of anticipation fills the air and the approaching finale brings less stress and a shorter working day. The island returns to the islanders and the community is yet again united. The town once more becomes a village and foreign music is replaced with almost solely Greek and then the dancing begins…………….

WINTER: In direct contrast to the sun filled days of Summer, the Winter months on Skopelos can be a mixture of wind, rain and dampness. 40 inches of rain fall each year on the island. No wonder it’s so green! Most of this rain seems to fall in the Winter. However, there are days of warmth, which make an ideal respite from the bitter cold. One thing about the winter weather is that it has the capacity to surprise all! January can bring remarkably fine weather but February can bring snow. You will be surprised to know that it can even snow on Skopelos. This varies from year to year and has proven to be a delightful and surprising experience. Nothing is predictable. During the wintertime, a blanket of quietness seems to envelope the town; with not a leaf left on the trees, the shutters closed and locked against the fierce winter winds, the town’s heart moves off the waterfront and into the centre.
