Area Info
The beaches ...
Here, the sirens enchant the Aegean breezes with their singing.
Here, the water spirits take the shape of mermaids and dance on the waves,
In the light, to every sound, with the tang of the brine.
Fresh crystalline beauties, transparent in the whiteness of purity,
Lend colour to the blue-green waters, lend the radiance of their charms.
Here in the Aegean sea, in Skopelos, in the Northern Sporades, in the ancient land of Peparithos.

Skopelos is an ideal place for a summer holiday, with landscape which is stunning and water abundant. This typically Greek island offers picturesque bays, a beautiful coastline and beaches (both shingles and pebbles), crystal-clear sea, excellent fruit, lovely countryside and innumerable churches and monasteries built on sites of great natural beauty.

The main road from Skopelos town runs to Stafylos cove and then along the south western coastline to Klima, Glossa and finally to Loutraki port. Along the route, many beautiful beaches can be found. A boat-journey will reveal all the picturesque and tiny coves that cannot be seen or reached by road. Most beaches have tavernas, sun beds and umbrellas; however, these facilities do vary from high to low season. Most beaches and towns on the island can be reached by bus or other transport.

Stafilos 4klm from town
The bus stops on the main road and it is about 500 m walk down to the beach. The beach is lined with pine trees and is a mixture of sand and shingle. The water is crystal clear and ideal for swimming. There is a taverna that has an excellent view of the bay and a beach bar in the high season.
Velanio
Velanio is connected to Stafilos beach by a footpath at the extreme end of the beach and is the islands' official nudist beach. At the very end of this beach, there is a spring with crystal water. A small cantina where refreshments can be found.
Limnonari 10 km from town
Limnonari is just around the headland from Agnontas and can be reached by foot, as the bus does not stop here. A beautiful white sandy beach and there are two tavernas for snacks and refreshments. This bay is a firm favourite for many.
Glysteri
This deep inlet on the northern coast has a shingle beach and is ideal for getting away from the crowds because of the effort it takes to get there.You reach Glysteri either within one hour by foot or in 15 minutes by car and In the peak of the season, a water taxi service is offered from the harbour front with regular trips to this bay. A taverna is right on the beach.
Panormos 15km from town
From Limnonari the road cuts inland through the pine forest emerging at Panormos bay. A very beautiful pebbly beach with deep blue waters. There are several tavernas on both the beach and the roadside. The bus stops beside the beach. Off to the right in the distance is the beach of Adrina, below the hotel complex.
Milia 17km from town
Milia is a long, gently curving grey sand and pebble beach, particularly picturesque, with a view of Dassia Island opposite. There is a taverna and a beach bar, the bus stop is approximately 500 m from the beach.

Agnontas – 8 km from town
Agnontas is a small shingle beach and harbour, which sometimes acts as an emergency port when the sea is rough and it is impossible to disembark at Skopelos Town. There are several tavernas here which serve excellent seafood as well as Greek specialities. An ideal spot to watch the sunset over an early evening aperitif. The bus stops directly beside the beach.

Linarakia – 16 km from town
The small collection of beaches seen from the right hand of Panormos bay can be reached by dirt track from the road or by climbing over the rocks on the beach. The local bus does not stop at these beaches so you must leave the bus at Panormos and go on foot.

Kastani – 18 km from town
Newly accessible on the bus route, this is an attractive, sandy tree- lined cove. Here the sunset is magnificent - do not miss it. The bus stops approximately 200 m from the beach.

Armenopetra – 22.5 km from town
After the village of Elios (New Klima) from the main road, a small narrow road brings you to Armenopetra beach. It is a secluded beach and, in our opinion, one of the best to escape the crowds. The local bus does not stop at this beach; you must leave the bus at Elios. No facilities available.

Ag. Ioannis Kastri
In addition to the striking monastery, which is reminiscent of the Meteora pinnacles, the adjacent beaches offer white sand and deep blue waters - ideal for snorkelling.

Glyfoneri – Ag. Konstantinos
Approximately 15 minutes over the top of the old town. Approaching Glyfoneri from the pinnacle of the hill leading down to the bay, one is enchanted by the crystal clear waters of the green-blue sea and small shingle beach. This quiet resort offers several Greek style tavernas and ouzeries, which are an ideal get-away, in the mid-summer evenings, from the bustle of Skopelos Town.

Vathias
This relatively secret, secluded cove lies on the north coast of the island. It is a shingle beach and a windy day will ensure turbulent surf. Recommended for swimming only on calm days. No facilities.

Mountains
Skopelos has a mountainous bas-relief and is dominated by two main mountains: Delphi (680 m) and Palouki (566 m). The only low-lying part of the island is situated between these two mountains and divides the island as it stretches from the bay of Skopelos to Stafylos. The larger part of the island is covered by dense forests of pine, holms oak and plane trees, which often run all the way down to the sea, creating scenery of extraordinary beauty.
