Took the quad bikes to this place, was a great drive. Yes, when you approach it is very abandoned, but there were two other people there naked bathing and snorkeling. The beach was clean, the water was clear and the sun was shining. If you...More

Any amenities there, probably a close beach. Nice nature, nice water, peebles beach- like everywhere in Skopelos.

I don't recommend this beach. Yeah, water is clear - so clear that you can easily see how much rubbish there is. Unfortunately. Ranta on epäsiisti, meri on täynnä roskaa. Rannalla ei ole palveluja. En suosittele ajamaan tänne, saarella on paljon parempia rantoja.

Hard to get, long drive. Not worth of driving there, so many better beaches. Rubbish, stranded building full of trash.

We stumbled across this beautiful bay whilst quad biking around Skopelos and, although it is tatty with no facilities, we thought it was beautiful. The water was crystal clear and there were only a couple of people on the beach. It was a welcome oasis...More

Today (3 Jul) we visited Glisteri Beach to see for ourselves what people were saying about the state it is now in - and what you read is all true. The old Taverner is all but rubble, the iconic arch has gone and the beach...More
