“Pretty beach and bay but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

...the hawkers set up to exploit your visit offer third rate goods, poor service and aren't interested in anything other than depleting your wallet, the surrounding locale is in desperate need of either a good tidy up or bulldozing flat!!!

“Dirty Beach---Skoupidaki as Greeks say”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

As some other people pointed out, don't waste your time here. We saw garbage floating around in the water and luckily we had driven here and didn't waste the money to take a boat as others had. There are so many more beautiful beaches to see in Skopelos, so don't waste your time here. Top beaches: Panormos, Kastani, Milia with these three you don't need to go anywhere else to swim!!

“a nice small beach with a tavern”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

The beach is small but nice (pebbles), clean and quiet waters. There is only one tavern there - a family one, where we had lunch. Tasty food, perfect service, a bit expensive.

“small average beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Glisteri is a small beach not very far from the Skopelos port which is very famous for the Mamma Mia movie. I really have to watch the movie again to check at which point you can see this beach in the film, as I don't remember right now. As I read and saw there is a very small pier which is connected to a locked door which leads to a very long passage goes up on the hill. There is said to be the film's "Villa Donna". But you cannot see it from the beach. There is a famous and good tavern there. The half of the beach is organised and with 5 euro you can rent an umbrella with two deck-chairs for all of the day. The time we went there, it was a little windy and in the sea were many rubbish and plastic bags. One man from the tavern was collecting all rubbish. The tavern has got very nice food and it's a good idea to have your lunch there.
