Pristine and beautiful

I found Skopelos more pristine and authentic than Skiathos. Skiathos was busy and noisy, while Skopelos was the exact opposite thing. Our hotel was in Glossa and we were on the beach all day. Glossa and Stafilos were the best beach, but go early because after noon they get very crowded and you can't find any umbrella for some shadow. The only bad thing were the buses. There are no good buses on Skopelos, itineraries are never kept and they are always crowded. After two days of suffering with buses, we rented a motorbike to get around in ease. Villages are ncie but do not have the noticeable architecture of Cyclades. The best spot of the villages is on top of them from where you can see all the area. You get the best pictures from there! Otherwise, there is not much to do. There are no sites to see, not even a castle. You just swim, eat and relax, which is what vacations are for, after all!
