Those who are on Skopelos and in Greece will have noticed that we have a heatwave. It seems that a lot of countries around Greece have a heatwave too. Without a little bit of wind it is difficult to sleep but today (Wednesday) we are blessed with wind but we have to be extra careful because the danger of fire and fire spreading rapidly is close by.
Be careful with your cigarettes and work that might cause flames/fire !!!

Holidaymakers from all over the world are visiting Skopelos this year. Skopelosnews has seen an increase in big yachts visiting the island and there are many groups of young adults holidaying together here on the island from Greece but also from abroad.

If you think the beaches are too full during the day visit them after five o’clock. The first group of visitors has left the beach to go and eat and take a nap. Visit the beaches that don’t have umbrellas and sunbeds. They are bound to be less crowded. Take you own umbrella.
The photo above was taken on Milia at the end of the beach. Almost nobody around and the sea, oh that sea….

Better now

Good morning and had a good week !

The very bad weather that was predicted all over Greece has hit in certain places like Larissa etc. Skopelos had a lot of rain last night and there were also very strong winds.

I heard a story of a Skopelitan who called the municipality and asked them if the parking area next to the elementary school could be opened so cars could be moved from the peripheral road to that safer parking area. A very good thought! Many cars and motor bikes were removed from the street leading to the harbor and the municipality is continuously cleaning the gutters and places where leaves and garbage can block the flow off water during a heavy rainfall.

This is a photo of last night before the storm and
