By Bus -- Skopelos is reasonably well served by public bus; the bus stop in Skopelos town is on the east end of the port. There are four routes. Buses run the main route every half-hour in the high season beginning in Skopelos and making stops at Stafilos, Agnondas, Panormos, the Adrina Beach Hotel, Milia, Elios, Klima, Glossa, and Loutraki. The fare from Skopelos to Glossa is 3€.

By Car & Moped -- Rent a car or moped at one of the many shops on the port. A four-wheel-drive vehicle at Motor Tours (tel. 24240/22-986; motortours@skopelos.travel) runs around 55€, including insurance; expect to pay less for a Fiat Panda. A moped should cost about 20€ per day.

By Taxi -- The taxi stand is at the far end of the waterfront (left off the dock). Taxis will take you to almost any place on the island. Taxis are not metered -- negotiate the fare before you get in. A typical fare, from Skopelos to Glossa, runs 40€.

By Boat -- To visit the more isolated beaches, take one of the large excursion boats; these cost about 70€ including lunch, and should be booked a day in advance in high season. Excursion boats to Glisteri, Gliphoneri, and Sares beaches operate only in peak season (about 20€). From the port of Agnondas, on the south coast, fishing boats go to Limnonari, one of the island's better beaches.
