“Nice beach, close to Skopelos town”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Its main advantage is that it is very close to Skopelos town. If located in Skopelos town and you want to minimize driving a lot this is maybe one of the best choices.
On the other hand due to its close proximity with Skopelos town it is crowded with limited parking areas. Thus you will easily walk quite a long distance from parking place to the beach (take note that you have to walk down some stairs, and up also :).
Another drawback vs other beaches is that there are no free umbrellas.
During peak season I would suggest you visit this beach for a short afternoon swim so as to avoid congestion.

“ok, near to town”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Not the nicest beach in Skopleos. 6 euro for sunbeds, no taverna but a small beach bar which sells drinks and snacks. A long wall up and down from the bus stop. Gets very busy at weekends and afternoons.

“Stafilos”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

We went to Stafilos because it was the closest to Skopelos Town. We found the beach and the water itself to be quite unclean and nothing like the other magnificant beaches around the island...not sure if we just got tere on a bad day, but I would not recommend people go here!

“Pretty bay, 2nd beach is round the corner”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Great spot and the good taverna is on the hill with stunning views from the terrace. Just round the corner is a quieter beach also nice, not sure if naturists go there or not.
