This beach is a true hidden, unpolished jewel. Secluded behind the little forest road after Stafylos beach and surrounded by cliffs. There are pebble stones on the beach and you can watch at the cliffs above you, listen to the sea and dry on the hot stones while listening to the waves. The firast part of the beach is not... More

Easy. Take a public bus from anywhere on the island to Stafylos. Buses run, not often, but times are posted at the bus stops. From Panormos, took 20 minutes and cost 2.20 Euros. Very convenient. The "stafylos" sign points down. Walk down the big hill (you can't miss it) onto the beach. Walk to the far end of Stafylos beach... More

this is the beach to go to and relax and enjoy peace and quiet, you have to walk all the way to the end of the beach and you will see a walkway to your left that leads you to the beach, it is a nudist beach so please don't be surprised or bring young kids if you do not... More

Wonderful beach, peace and quiet, just a small path away from noisy Stafylos beach. Take a beach umbrella with you as there is no shade and buy bottles of cold water from the canteen on Stafylos beach.

the only official nudist beach on Skopelos has no shade so be prepared in high season to bring brollies with you. Thankfully there's a natural water spring coming from one of the rocks which is a god send. Wear sandals when walking on the beach or getting in the water as it's very rocky. Very quiet beach too.

Not organized. Really quiet and calm and the water was amazing! Very clean and people weren't loud when we were there. Had to visit beach several times and I think this was my favorite beach on the whole island. Worth the 15 min. walk from Stafylos. Remember to bring water and food!

loved the authentic nature, no sunbeds or bars, jet skies and any water attraction. The short walk to get there is worth the experience
