HEALTH CARE INFO
Skopelos (Greek: Σκόπελος) is the second largest island (after Skiathos) in the Northern Sporades, while administratively belongs to the Prefecture of Magnesia. It is a short distance from Alonissos (about 3-4 km) and from Skiathos (6-7 km). Most of the island's inhabitants live in Skopelos Town, which has been declared a listed settlement. Its main features are the paved cobblestone streets and the many small churches scattered throughout the city. The second largest village is Glossa which it is served by the port of Loutraki. The island is full of dense forests that cover almost 80% of its area, which is why it is considered the greenest of the Aegean Sea.
