Kastani Beach, Skopelos

4.2
#1 of 30 in Things to do in Skopelos
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. A visit to Kastani Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Skopelos itinerary builder to plot your vacation.

    If you like beaches, are worth here. Come on time, after 11 pm there is no loungers on the beach more, though still at the restaurant on the grass. It may look pretty, but that's pretty good on hot days. On the grass is that wind is not.

    You find what the heart desires may at this beach, cut off a beautiful beach for swimming as well as for the Board will be well taken care of and with no fees for the fall concerns and the screen.

    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.

    Great music, nice food and drinks for reasonable price. Beautiful view. Full of people, but worth to visit

    Great place, especially before 10: 30 when busses and ships bring tourist crowds

    Beautiful sandy-shingle beach with green place to sit with sunbeds and beach umbrelas. Near the beach is a bar.
