Apparently a family dispute in around 2014 has meant this place is completely shut down. There is no Mamma Mia arch, no bar, no facilities - zilch. We drove out to see it mid August and there were 2 poor souls braving the dirty stony...More

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.

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
