MILIA. Between the resorts of Klima, Elios and Panormos, in the west of Skopelos, are located two very nice beaches; Milia and Kastani. Coming from Panormos, Milia is the first beach you encounter. On the main road is a sign indicating that you should turn left. You drive through the mountain, down to the beach with ample parking.
Milia is a small beach with white pebbles and pine trees. Again, as with other beaches in Skopelos, you will see fantastic colours; green pine forests that come down to the water, the turquoise colours of the sea and the bright blue sky. In the water, close to the beach, you see two striking white rocks. At a short distance, is the beautiful island of Dasia. It is possible to access it by boat from Panormos.
A bay beyond is the beach Kastani. First you must go back up the mountain to the main road, a kilometre or two further you see the exit for Kastani. This beach is more sandy and smaller than Milia. Behind the beach is a very nice beach bar with lovely sunbeds and lounge music. These beaches are accessible from Skopelos Town within twenty-five minutes.
