Kastani Beach, Skopelos

4.2
Enjoy some quiet on the sand at Kastani Beach, located on the southwestern coast of the island of Skopelos. The beach is just a short walk from the island's main bus route. Follow the well-marked dirt road to the turquoise sea. Split your time between swimming in the gentle water and exploring the pine-covered cliffs. Visit a small beach bar for a cold drink and fresh seafood. Avoid the crowds by arriving early, or look for a spot hidden by lush vegetation and weathered rocks.

  • One of the few beaches with sand!! It has small pebbles as well so you need to wear sandals or swim shoes on hot days. Crystal clear water and a beautiful view nestled around rocks and pines cove. Fam...  more »
  • Beach too famous and too crowded. If you like the chaos the noise the crowd come in. Water not beautiful. We didn't like and try it. We were 10 minutes and then fled.

  • Mamamia beach is definitely one of the best beaches. Organized ("bar-something to eat-Brown) has it all. For photo Memorial as you are on the beach go to NOT end in brachakia. Prefer outside season because otherwise not be afflicted by the world and tourist vessels.

  • By far my most favorite of Skopelos' beaches. The service was fast, the drinks were okay and the prices were fair. The only issue you might have is the road to get there from the nearest bus stop. It's a steep downhill road which for some reason is wet which makes it extremely dangerous. The sunbeds were free and you could rent some sunbeds nearer to the bar where you could also have lunch.
  • Beatifiul beach with superb swimming. The water was amazing. Lots of sand and space.
  • Beautiful place, great beach not to crowded. Clear blue water. Sunbeds are free with drink from the tavern.
  • Possibly the best beach on the island. Nice bar, free sunloungers and umbrellas. Shingle, not sand (as with most on the island). The only thing missing is a taverna. They do snacks at the bar though. Family friendly though. I imagine it is rammed in high season, we were here just at the start of the season, so was nice and peaceful.
  • Like milia beach but very smaller. Nice location. Beach bar is nice but takes a lot of space.
