If you arrive in Skopelos Port, you can stay there for a few days and then go to Hovolo, and catch the ferry back from Glossa Port (10 mins from Hovolo). The Hotel is very clean and the owner George is very accommodating. He also owns the Seafood Tavern Plantatia next door, for which he gives a 10% discount. We took the sea view room, with a nice terrace and a great view. Admittedly, 82 steps to reach the room. We stayed at the start of the season so it was fairly quiet. The weather is sensational in June, warm during the day and comfortable at night. No need for airconditioning.
We had one of the best fish soups ever at the sea food tavern next door. Fresh fish is a speciality. Sitting on the large terrace under the large plantatia trees is very pleasant in the evening. Friday nights they have a duo - guitar and bouzouki. There is a nice beach, however, the Mamma Mia beach Kastani is 10 minutes away. There is a modern bar on the beach. Have a cocktail and play chess until it is sunset. This area appears to be relatively new. There are quite a few good taverns in the area and good boat mooring facilities.
