We used the Skiathos to Glossa ferries when staying at the Anna Maria-Venessa apartments in Neo Klima, Skopelos. We booked our holiday with Travel Republic, flying to Skiathos but had to book the ferries separately. We used ferries direct.co.uk which worked fine (after emailing Dimitris I discovered you need to book Skiathos-Glossa) but you must remember they only give you a printed voucher, which you have to take into the Hellenic Seaways office, opposite the harbour in Skiathos, where they issue the tickets for both outward and return journeys. We took a 5 minute taxi from the airport to the port, where they is an abundance of tavernas all wanting your trade. Most of them will store your luggage, provided you have refreshments, so we were able to spend our free time exploring the town. There is a small island near the harbour where you can sit in the shade watching the comings and goings of the many boats and a delightful cafe with fantastic views. One point I think I should mention is the availability of taxis on Skiathos. We had no problem getting from the airport to the port, but on our return trip the taxis were very thin on the ground at the port. There is a taxi queue, which fortunately is under cover, but many people were getting really worried as they'd been waiting for ages, so please allow plenty of time to get to the airport which is very small and somewhat chaotic but watch out for the weight of your luggage - we flew ThomasC

This unspoilt greek village is well-worth a visit. Local bus from Skopelos town goes there.The winding streets climb up the hillside to the main square where there are 2 tavernas shaded by an ancient tree. As my friend and I are walkers, we took the 7am bus to avoid the heat and breakfasted at the taverna on bread still warm from the local bakery and local honey. If you want to see authentic Greece, go to Glossa

The town is built on a hill and has the most charming narrow cobbled streets with amazing views but the pinnacle was the tiny "town square" where we were treated to a backgammon competition and the most amazing views from the roof of the bar there, the owners of which were incredibly friendly, the food and music excellent. And still this was all easily and cheaply accessible via public transport from Skopelos.

Very tranquil place to sit and admire all the boats and wish that one of them was yours. Lovely place for a spot of lunch or a refreshing cool drink.

Loutraki is the official name of the port of Glossa, although many people use the name Glossa also for the port... Glossa is a small and nice village on the hill above the port, worth visit. If you have time, take an hour or two in the morning and go there... Take a walk through this beautiful village with narrow streets, drink coffee or juice somewhere, sit in the square on entrance to the village and observe the locals, their routine, their life. It was interesting to see local man which deliver fresh fish, announcing his arrival loudly and evoke locals from the houses... Relaxing life. Take time and enjoy, its better than sit in a bar under AC and with loud music… ;)) This is still Greece...

Great views, very clean small port, great to relax and watch the boats and ferries come in.
Lots of nice places to eat
Worth a visit and then go up to the village of Glossa and walk around the narrow streets that are full of traditional greek homes.

Almost all ferries stop at Glossa and Skopelos town. Although Glossa is much smaller it saves you time and money to jump out of the ferry at Glossa. The car rental company’s such as Magic Cars will bring your rental there or pick it up as you leave it there!

Glossa port (Loutraki), is the closest entry point from Volos or Agios Konstantinos to the island of Skopelos, saving the traveler a good 40 minutes from arriving at Skopelos main port. Since this is a big island, more than 40 kms long, and public transportation being scant, you probably should consider a rental. The beach outside the pier is a very clean one with chairs and umbrellas (for free). The port consists of just a few houses and eateries for passers by, but the real treat is Glossa village perched on the steap slope overhanging the port. It is a place with character and obvious efforts to preserve the Ago essence ( being a major sea men birthplace) rightfully challenging the capital of the island (Hora). It also boasts a couple of taverns with terrific views of the Aegean..

Great start of visiting the Skopelos Island. The port is not as crowdy as Skopelos Town. The view of Glossa town, lying up the hill, gives the feel of atmosphere of the island.
