Beach Nature / Park
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.

  • Had a wonderful time at Kastani Beach, the color of the water is blue crystal-clear. The bar is 5 stars, free loungers, the service was TOP! It is a MUST GO.  more »
  • I love this beach. I haven't seen all beaches, but this one is the most beautiful. Clean water, nice service, really designed to spend all day here!  more »
  • This is the most sandy beach we visited on skopelos. We also went to panormos and milia which is next to kastani. The way down from the bus is easy and there are sun beds and a bar that serves snacks ...  more »

  • 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.
  • Conteporary facility on a typical greek beach.
