Skopelos Beaches

The most popular beach of the island is located in a magnificent bay at the foot of a mountain covered with pine trees. The most popular beach of the island due to the distance from the main town of Skopelos. Stafylos is a beautiful beach just 4 km from the town of Skopelos.

Staphylos owes its name to the Cretan prince Staphylos, who came to Skopelos and chose this place to settle a small town around 1600 BC. A rocky edge that goes out into the sea is the home of the tomb of Prince Staphylos. The Prince’s golden sword, which one can admire at the Archaeological Museum of Athens, was found there.

The beach is sandy and the water is an enchanting blue-green. Stafylos beach is an organized beach with sun loungers and umbrellas and a beach bar. Lifeguard services are also available. Keep in mind that access to the beach includes a steep 500-meter downhill and a few steep stone steps as you get there by bus.

Staphylos is a beautiful bay with sand and large rocks. There is also a small path from Stafylos to the pleasant beach of Velanio, the most remote place for nudists.
