VELANIO BEACH

Skopelos Beaches

Crystal clear waters, endless blue, white pebbles, pines coming out of the sea and spreading to the shore. You will find this terrestrial paradise on the beach of Velanio, on the south side of Skopelos. The magical natural landscape offers peace. To get there you have to cross Stafylos beach and follow the path on the rocks. Velanio has officially been declared a nudist beach. It is the only nudist beach in Skopelos.

Velanio beach has white sand, small pebbles, crystal clear aquamarine waters. From 2017 there is a beach bar, where umbrellas and sun loungers are also available. The dream landscape has not received human interference, so while swimming you only meet the beautiful beach, the blue sky and the green pine forest. It also has an excellent seabed for exploration.

Velanio is approximately 4, 4 km from Chora and the port of Skopelos. It is about 7-8 minutes from Stafylos beach. You can also get to Velanio beach by swimming from Stafylos beach. There is organized local transport. The route from the country is ideal for hiking.

For the lovers of history it is worth mentioning that behind the path the grave of Staphylos was found. As the myth tells us, Prince Staphylos had participated in Jason’s Argonauts Campaign. At the Archaeological Museum of Athens you will admire part of his sword.

On the right side of the beach there is a lovely cave on the edge of which you will see the water dripping from the rocks. This proves that in the Roman years at that point there were baths (in the ancient dialect baths = valanion)

If you stay on the beach shortly after the lovely sunset, you will come across free-range goats that come down to drink sea water.

If you come by boat watch out because first there are many rocks and secondly at the point where the two beaches separate there is a network of power cables.
