This Greek Island Is A Must-Visit For Mamma Mia Fans

By Aimee Long


The movie "Mamma Mia!" featured dreamy scenes of turquoise water, white-washed villages, and a church perched on a cliffside filmed on the Greek island of Skopelos.
From the mountaintop Chapel of Agios Ioannis to Kastani Beach, there are countless hidden gems to uncover on Skopelos that are worthy of being movie backdrops.
Visitors on Skopelos can stroll along pebbled beaches wreathed in green foliage and climb up the hidden alleyways of villages perched on a hillside that nearly tumble into the sea.
Skopelos is a bucolic hideaway from the hustle and bustle of the modern world, and with so much beauty to behold, you don't even need to be a "Mamma Mia!" fan to enjoy the island.
Although you won't be able to stay in the magical Villa Donna, there are tons of alternative villas and estates to stay at and plenty of things to do on the little island.
Visit one of the monasteries, find your own slice of paradise along Skopelos' beautiful beaches, or simply wander around the charming villages.
Two of the island's best beaches, Agnontas and Kastani, were the setting for some of the most famous scenes in "Mamma Mia!". You can even take a dedicated "Mamma Mia!" tour.
