Long walk from the Kastro at the top of the town but going to the beach is fine, it is the walk afterwards that is challenging. The water is nice to swim in, but there are bolders in the sea so wear suitable swimming shoes. There was quite a bit of rubbish on the beach this time which can be... More

We stayed on Skopelos for 2 weeks and visited this beach every day once we discovered it. The beach is small and used mostly by locals and the food at the taverna is simple but the best. Fresh calamari cooked to perfection, fresh anchovies, lovely moussaka and tzatziki. Georgios is a fantastic chef and Sophia and her children wonderful hosts.... More

Glifoneri a.k.a. Ag.Konstantinos is over 2km far from Skopelos town. It's a rightful town beach,very clean water and beautiful sand. There are a small amount of rocks when you go into the water but then comes the sand. There is a possibility to walk along the road but beware locals and younger population on rent vehicle are driving like crazy.... More

Spent half a day at this beach. Free sun beds from the taverna. We bought some snacks there which they brought down to us when they were ready. Possibly not the prettiest on the island but it was nice and close and we enjoyed it.

Absolutely loved this beach... Very peaceful and beautiful. It is about 2km north of the town. We walked but the walk is very up and down. It is worth the walk as the view of the town and the harbour is quite special... Make sure you take water with you as you will need to stop for a breather. The... More

The Glifoneri beach might not have the most extravagant surroundings, but still this became my favourite one. The water is lovely and the bottom is sweet and sandy when you step in. An excellent beach for those of you who love to take a good swim. But the best thing is Sophias restaurant where you get to borrow the sunchairs... More
