There are not many wild beaches on Skopelos approachable by car and facing the open Aegean with waves etc. If you want that go there. It’s not a huge beach but with different sections but when not crowded it’s perfect. Maybe better go there in later hours if you want to be alone. Considering the sun is on the other side at sunset, as the beach faces North-East, you should go earlier to enjoy the sun.

A wonderful beach easily accessed from the free car park which also now has a cafe-bar. Sunbed hire is also available at 7 Euros but we used our towels. The beach is very interesting as it has rocks ay each end and also leads on to other small beaches via a footpath.

Recommended.

This is a nice, somewhat isolated beach on the northern side of the island of Skopelos and on the opposite side from the village of Glossa. The orientation is toward the island of Alonnisos.

To get to this beach you need to drive a rural road out of Glossa following signs for the beach, Agrio Gourounia (wild pig) (an area of water). You eventually end up small parking lot overlooking a cliff downwards over the beach.

This is not a handicapped accessible area. You have to walk down from the parking area over narrow pathways laden with stones, dirt and uneven surfaces that could be difficult for some to traverse. The payoff is at the bottom: one of the few sandy beaches on Skopelos.

The view is stunting but that's all. This is not a good beach to visit especially considering the long drive. The sea is full of rocks which make it difficult to swim and enjoy the beach. During a windy day the sea is full of waves.
Two sun beds and one umbrella will cost you 7€ which is the standard price for Skopelos.

Majestic view. Cosy canteen-cafe on the top with wooden benched.
When descending the small hill towards the beach we enjoyed the view. Nice sea colour, rocks e.t.c.
Natural shade after 13:00 every day.
We found a nice place on the beach and dived into the sea.

...then noticed the moist rocks and swarm of wasps all over near every rock shade.

I guess that renting an umbrella might be better.

We just left.

This beach is in the north of the island and is only accessible by car. Just keep following the signs, even when you think you must have gone too far by now! There is a car park at the top of the cliff with plenty of spaces and then quite a step walk down to the stone and shingle beach.
We visited at the end of July so it wasn't quite as secluded as I can imagine it is out of high season. There was a lady there selling drinks out of a cool box and renting out a few sun beds.
We went to the far end of the bay and went snorkling out around the rocks. There were lots of fish and some amazing scenes among the rocks, sand and schools of fish.
The rocks near the shore get slippery so be careful, especially if you have children with you.
This is not a bucket and spade type beach, but if you want somewhere relatively quiet with great views and clear blue water then this is a great place to visit.

Secluded stoney beach, really beautiful on a calm day. Not quiet safe enough to swim on a rougher day, strong under current. Breath taking views whatever the weather.

Buy yourself a decent map, hire a jeep and find this gem in the far NE corner of Skopelos, best in the morning through to mid-afternoon as the mountains behind cast a shadow late in the day. If you want tavernas, sunbeds and lots of other people - go elsewhere, but we loved the quiet and solitude with crystal clear water and great snorkeling. About half a dozen people came and went during the four hours we spent there, seemingly like-minded folk enjoying the peace.

This is the kind of secluded beach you see sometimes on posters. So it is worth taking the winding road from Glossa. It has the minimal ammenities: bar, toilets, sun beds and umbrellas (no showers).

If you like quiet unspoilt beaches, off the beaten track, with no facilities, then this beach is a must. Well worth the drive to the top NE corner of the island, you won't be disappointed. Beautiful clear water, hardly any people. Bliss.
