holidays-in-greeceThe coast line of Skopelos is the perfect location for an activity holiday in Greece, and consists of secret beaches, sea caves, tunnels and miles of rocks and cliffs. There are also small islands off the coast that are inhabited with a plethora of nesting sea birds, Hawks, Buzzards and the Eleanora falcon. Very often while paddling out to these islands the local pod of Dolphins will put in an appearance, along with our resident big old seal and sea turtles. During the spring and early summer we may be lucky enough to spot Whales and even an occasional Basking shark cruising effortlessly. Later in the season the Tuna appear, usually signified by huge flocks of Gulls trying to get their share of the bate fish that are being herded to the surface, the Tuna in their excitement come flying out of the water. If we're lucky enough to spot one of these feeding frenzies, get your camera ready as some of these stunning fish grow to more than 2 meter in length and weigh in at well over 100kg, but forget trying to keep up with them as these majestic creatures can swim at more than 40 miles per hour!
