Skopelos Beaches

Just below the imposing rock that holds the chapel of Agios Ioannis Kastri, there is hidden, small, idyllic beach with crystal clear waters, thhe beach of Agios Ioannis Kastri in Skopelos. The combination of the impressive rock with the small beach with its unparalleled natural beauty create a unique landscape for the visitor. The beach is sandy, with small pebbles and stones with turquoise waters.

The beach of Agios Ioannis Kastri is located on the northeastern side of Skopelos. You can access it by private car as there is an asphalt road. You will meet two small rocky beaches with incredible waters. Park your car to go to the first beach on foot. In order to get to the next one you have to swim or climb some rocks.

The beach has a few umbrellas and deck chairs. There is a canteen on the road during the summer months that offers water, soft drinks, coffee.

The beach is in the north and is therefore affected by the northerly winds. But when it is not windy, the magic of the landscape is everywhere. You will enjoy swimming with the unique background of Skopelos.

The church of Ai Giannis Kastri became popular through the Hollywood film Mamma Mia, since it is the church that celebrated the marriage of the protagonists. Obviously, the landscape captivated the film producers as it will undoubtedly captivate you when you ascend the 106 steps you require to reach the chapel. The beauty of the scenery and the stunning views of the Aegean Sea will compensate you for your effort.

Agios Ioannis Kastri beach is 30 km from Hora and the port of Skopelos. On the way to Glossa, you will come across a road on your right hand that ends up at the church of St. John. There are signs that guide you.
