Skopelos has year-round access with the ports of Agios Konstantinos, Mandoudi (Evia), Volos, Skiathos and Alonnissos, while access with the ports of Thessaloniki, Kymi (Evia) and Skyros is seasonal.
- Being in the middle of the three Northern Sporades islands, Skopelos is just a short ferry/hydrofoil journey from the nearest airport on Skiathos.
- Car ferries and hydrofoils link Skopelos to the mainland port of Volos, whose airport in Nea Anchialos also receives international flights in summer.
- Maritime companies run between the islands to Agios Konstantinos on the mainland, Kymi and Mandoudi on Evia.
Most visitors in summer will arrive via neighbouring Skiathos island, and take the forty minute ferry connections to the two ports at Skopelos Town or Loutraki in Glossa. Many prefer to arrange their own flights and connections via Skiathos, or Athens which has a bus link to Agios Konstantinos, Mandoudi (Evia) and Volos, or via the airports at Volos or Thessaloniki. Car ferries run on all island and mainland routes throughout the year.
