Skopelos named one of the World's secret islands to visit

The Greek island of Skopelos is listed on Travel + Leisure's best secret islands on Earth.

The North Sporades island is listed number 6 on the '30 Secret Islands to Visit for the Ultimate Secluded Vacation'.

"A one-hour ferry ride from Skiathos, the island of Skopelos is so picture-perfect (hidden coves, blue-roofed tavernas, hundreds of Byzantine-era churches) that Hollywood chose its Kastani Beach as a set for Mamma Mia. Nearly every room at the seasonal and its sister property look out onto the turquoise Aegean. After a dinner of lobster pasta and slow-cooked lamb kleftiko at waterfront The Muses, walk along the beach-hugging road to the open-air Mercurius Cocktail Bar or the hilltop Anatoli for ouzo and live rebetika music," Travel + Leisure stated.

The Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority issued a new aviation directive (NOTAM).

All passengers arriving in Greece must fill in a Passenger Locator Form (PLF) at least a day before arrival, providing information that will include their departure airport, the address where they will be staying and the expected duration of their stay in Greece, among others. The information on the form is a key element of the country’s planning for protection against the pandemic and preventing the spread of the virus.
