“Elios or Neo Klima village lies 19 km west of Skopelos town, surrounded by dense pine tree forests. The first houses are built at the bottom of Elios, around the picturesque port. Elios is a relatively new settlement, built in 1981 after the destruction of Klima village by the major earthquake in 1965. The locals who moved there managed to create a new village was from the start in a beautiful region full of pine trees. A little wharf was also made for the boats. In the heart of the village there are some accommodation, nice fish taverns and local shops. For swimming you can visit the main beach and a number of other beautiful beaches like Hovolo and Armenopetra ”

“Skopelos Town is the first village ones sees while reaching the port. This little town which is the capital and main port of Skopelos is quite picturesque with lovely whitewashed houses, flower gardens and colorful balconies. Its fountains, its many little whitewashed churches, narrow streets and alleys compose the beautiful setting of the village. The town is built amphitheatrically amidst lush surroundings with a long labyrinth of alleys reaching the top of the hill where the ancient castle lies. At the bottom of the town, at the port where most of the activities take place during the summer, you will find plenty of restaurants, shops and modern accommodations. ”
