Skopelos has a wealth of beautiful beaches.
The larger, busier beaches lie on the west coast and include Stafylos, Panormos and Milia, as well as Velanio, the island's unofficial nudist beach.
The small fishing port of Agnondas has a charming smaller beach which is excellent for snorkelling. Agnondas has several delightful tavernas on the water's edge which provide a great spot for lunch or dinner as the sun sets in the west. Click here for a short video of Agnondas.
On the east coast lie many smaller, quieter, 'hidden' beaches where you can find yourself completely alone, even during high season.
Skopelos Old Town has it's own beach which shares the bay with the harbour, while 15 minutes' walking from the Old Town is Glifoneri beach.
A slightly longer walk from the Old Town takes you to Glysteri beach. Lying at the top of a narrow cove, Glysteri beach is also accessible by a regular 20-minute boat trip from Skopelos harbour.
All Skopelos' beaches are fine shingle. All the larger beaches, apart from Milia, offer tavernas for lunch or dinner.
