The seaside village of Neo Klima or Elios in Skopelos is a blessed place as it is rich in natural resources. Elios is built right where a freshwater stream from Delphi Mountain ends. Mount Delphi has the highest peak of Skopelos.
The entire length of Neo Klima Village is by the sea and ends literally in the Aegean Sea, where the beaches finish in the sand and small pebbles. Also, the picturesque fishing village is surrounded by mountains covered by pine forests. The two beaches of the village are Elios beach and Hovolo beach.
Elios – Neo Klima is 24 km away from Skopelos Town if you follow the coastal road that runs through Stafylos and Agnontas. If you take the road from Agios Riginos the distance is 18 km from Skopelos port and you will need approximately 25 minutes by car. Neo Klima is just 7 km from Glossa village, a 7-minute drive away.

the history of neo- Klima
The settlement of New Klima was created only in 1981. The locals decided to move to the seaside to develop a more touristy settlement. In addition, the great earthquake that occurred in 1965 almost destroyed the village of Palio Klima, where they lived until then. The reasons that prompted the inhabitants of the Palio Klima to move are the destruction of the village by the earthquake, the constant landslides, and the people’s desire to be near the sea.
where the name elios comes from
Skopelos is an island full of legends. The fearless female pirate Adrina, Prince Stafilos, and Saint Riginos. Each name hides some of the island’s interesting history. Part of this story is the picturesque Elios.
The legend related to Elios claims that about 800 years ago a terrible dragon appeared in Skopelos, killing the islanders. No one could live in Skopelos anymore. Hopefully, Saint Riginos informed of this tragic situation, came to Skopelos and destroyed the monster.
Elios Beach got its name when Saint Riginos landed on Skopelos, found in the Neo Clima area, and exclaimed, “Where in God’s mercy (eleos) is the monster”.
