“Neo Klima/Elios Beach on Skopelos Island”
Review of Hovolo Beach

Attraction details
Reviewed July 31, 2017

There are a lot of beaches on the island of Skopelos. As expected many of them are filled with tourists. Neo Klima/Elios has fewer tourists and more locals. It is a clean and safe beach. It is very nice for families. There are several activities which operate our of this beach including Kayaking (Sea Kayak Center of Skopelos with Yvonne and Neil) and Standup Paddle Boarding with Shane. It is not far from the village of Glossa. You can take a taxi or the bus. Taxis are very affordable on the island. It costs about 10 Euro from the Glossa taxi stand to the beach. We used Jimmy (Tsaknis Dimitrios) almost exclusively. He lived in Canada for a number of years and is fluent in both English and Greek. +30 6978 025 718 (Tell him Tom and Linda recommended him). Since the beaches on Skopelos are primarily rocks rather than sand, I recommend swim/water shoes. As everywhere on the island, the water is totally clear. You can see the bottom of the sea even standing up on a paddle board, kayaking, and swimming.

The beach is nice, but it is not suitable in the afternoons. There is not shade. It is clear and suitable for younger persons.

We walked a bit to check out the beach and it is not sandy.
The beach bar is not for free i.e. you have to pay appr. 7€ per umbrella plus your drinks or food which is normal for touristic places.
The water was crystal clear so swimming glasses recommended if you want to explore the sea.
There are a few meters of free spaces where you can put your towel and relax if you don't want to pay the beach bar.

After seeing all beaches in Skopelos, Ican say that one of the best was near my apartment in Neo Klima! ;-) Even though it is hard to get to, having in mind that you must walk through the sea and pass other beaches to get there. However, it worths every step.
