Loutraki is a small traditional Greek village on the north west coast of Skopelos. It sits beneath the town of Glossa on a tall hill which can be spotted a long way out to sea. The harbour is home to ferries and hydrofoils, so keep a look out for them when entering and exiting the harbour and avoid going in the harbour when the ferry is manoeuvring.
Take a torch ashore with you in the evenings as the path from the pontoon is unlit. There are a few local tavernas in the village. For the more adventurous, a 30 minute walk, or a 10 minute taxi ride, will take you to Glossa, a gloriously traditional Greek town on the top of the hill.
Lockie (Sporades flotilla Engineer 2013) says: "The village has numerous tavernas and bars including Flisvos Taverna run by (the very friendly) Yianni. This taverna is well worth a visit if fresh fish is what you are after. Glossa up on the hill offers some finer dining opportunities with views of Skiathos Island. The sun sets over Skiathos to the west - which is great to watch from the beach, with a cocktail in hand."
