Skopelos – Spilia Beach
Descending towards Saint John at Kastri, you can see from the top the small but alluring Spilia beach. It is located in a small intact bay. Several scenes of the successful Hollywood and Universal Studios movie “Mamma Mia” were filmed at Saint John of Kastri. Therefore, the chapel and the surrounding beaches have become particularly famous destinations since then.

Alternatively, you may go there following the unmade road, starting from the chapel of Panagia. On the first right unmade road, you’ll find the path that leads to the beach.
Skopelos – Sarres Beach
On the northeast side of the island, and very close to Chora of Skopelos, you may find the magical pebbly beach Sarres, reachable only with boat, due to its particular morphological relief. The prevailing feature of this region is the imposing cave through which the beach passes and extends to the other side.
Sarres beach has small pebbles with fine sand and really deep waters. Before visiting it, it is advisable to check the weather forecast. You should watch out the sudden bursts of wind or rain, and if you see the sky in the summer getting black or cloudy, it is recommended you come back to Chora of Skopelos, as soon as possible.
