With over sixty miles of beaches, from the famous golden sands of Kastani (Mama-Mia beach) to Panormos, Milia and discreet, naturist-friendly, nudist beach Velanio, via the sheltered bays of Glysteri, Limnonari and Stafilos, and including innumerable tiny coves hidden along the rocky south and west coasts, Skopelos is a playground for swimmers of all ages and abilities.


All of the popular beaches are shallow, safe and free of currents, ideal for families. Stafilos is said to be perfectly situated to become the warmest swimming spot early in the season, while Agnondas is very popular among island families at weekends. Open-sea beaches such as Kastani and Velanio are ideal for more experienced swimmers, but all share the same dazzling blue water that has become the island trademark.
